Description

If you already own a Delica or Endura, you have one of the best selling knives Spyderco makes. The knife you have just acquired is a bit different from the normal C10 Endura4 and C11 Delica4 Lightweights. They are now available in a range of new handle colors with full-flat ground blades. Their FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handles come in new vibrant tones including blue, green, brown, gray and purple. Molded onto the handle’s surface is Bi-Directional Texturing® for slip-free tactile traction. Inside the handle are dual skeletonized stainless steel liners which strengthen the knife without additional weight and double as an anchor for external and internal components to attach through generating more sturdiness and rigidity. The blades are full flat-ground VG-10 with a thinner highly refined cutting edge and a larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade’s spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze washers smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left-or right-handed clip.
In 1990, innovative cutlery company Spyderco introduced a knife called the Delica, a first of its kind on the market, offering a unique combination of lightweight performance, one-handed opening and closing, and an affordable price. it quickly became one of Spyderco’s top-selling knives, and the company has continued to refine the model over the years.

This is the fourth iteration of this keenly sharp, refined steel blade, offering screw-together construction that’s durable and easy to clean. A fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle comes in a variety of eye-catching colors, and has proprietary Bi-Directional Texturing for nonslip use with improved ergonomics, while dual skeletonized steel liners to improve strength without adding weight, and also anchor all external components. A razor sharp VG-10 blade is flat ground, while crosshatched jimping along the blade’s spine further improves grip, and phosphor bronze washers help smooth out the opening action. When it’s time to move, a four-way clip offers a number of carrying configurations.
