Spyderco Delica 4 LWT C11ZFPGR - VG-10 Blade - ZOME Green 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.
This unique expression of the Delica 4 Lightweight combines all the features of this best-selling model with a multi-colored hand-dyed “zome” handle.
Zome (pronounced "zoh-may") is a class of Japanese handicrafts that focuses on dyeing textiles. This ancient art form includes many different methods of creating patterns on cloth using dyes derived from plants, flowers, fruit, and other natural sources and is closely related to many aspects of Japanese history and culture.
Inspired by this rich artistic heritage, Spyderco's Zome knives are unique variations of our lightweight models, which feature injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles. The handles are molded in a light base color and then individually hand dyed by expert Japanese artisans. Using a technique reminiscent of traditional hiki-zome (brush dyeing), various colors of dye are hand brushed onto the handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns. Like Japan's classical dyeing methods, the special dyes used completely permeate the FRN to permanently color it.
This Delica 4 Lightweight boasts all the defining features of its breed, including a full-flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade, a sturdy back lock mechanism, skeletonized stainless steel liners, and a four-position pocket clip. Its injection-molded FRN handle showcases a brilliant hand-dyed zome pattern in shades of green.
If you're looking for a reliable workhorse knife with one-of-a-kind character, this is it.
