Spyderco C11SBK Delica 4 Lightweight - Saber Grind VG-10 Blade - Black FRN Handle
Chances are good that you already own one of Spyderco's iconic Endura or Delica Clipits, as they are some of the best sellers Spyderco makes. If you do, we won't need to convince you what great knives they are, and if you don't know, you're sure to be pleasantly surprised.
Sometimes you need to challenge the status quo, and that's what Spyderco did back in 1990 by introducing two knives: the Delica and Endura. First of their kind, these two opened up the knife market to lightweight performance, one-hand open pocketknives that just about everyone could afford. They settled as Spyderco's top two bestsellers and their improvement hasn't slowed since.
Refinement has been so ongoing and continual Spyderco tagged the updating/upgrading process with the term CQI- Constant Quality Improvement. During the Endura and Delica's CQI journey Spyderco tweaked ergonomics, refined blade steels and fine-tuned their performance countless times. They are an evolutionary work in progress and the next level is here with the new Endura 4 and Delica 4. Both models now have screw construction making cleaning and adjusting easier.
The FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handles come molded with Bi-Directional Texturing for preferred traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners make the knife stronger without adding weight and make an anchor for all external and internal components to attach through adding sturdiness and rigidity.
Lest we not forget their blades, which are the heart of every knife. Their VG-10 blades are flat saber-ground with a stronger tip and 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.
