Spyderco Endura 4 Lightweight C11ZFPOR - HAP40/SUS410 Laminated Blade - ZOME Orange/Black FRN Handle
Cutlery Shoppe's latest exclusive, the Spyderco Delica 4 Zome combines a brilliant pattern of orange and black with all the other defining features of this best-selling model. Since Spyderco first showed us a prototype of the ZOME handle models they were looking to make, we knew we had to have one in orange/black. We first offered an exclusive Endura, and it only made sense to offer a matching Delica.
Rather than just offer "our" ZOME with an orange/black handle, we decided to go "all out" and have Spyderco build them with a full-flat-ground HAP40/SUS410 laminated blade. This upgrade truly makes this ZOME stand out.
Standard features of the Delica 4 lightweight included is the well known solid back lock mechanism, a reversible deep-pocket four-way pocket clip that supports left or right-side tip-up carry. An amazing fusion of traditional artistry and modern factory production, this Delica 4 Lightweight ZOME is a practical everyday cutting tool with one-of-a-kind character.

More about ZOME:
Zome (pronounced "zoh-may") is a classical Japanese method of dyeing textiles that is closely related to many aspects of that country’s culture and history. Inspired by this rich artistic heritage, Spyderco's Zome family of knives includes unique hand-dyed variations of popular lightweight models with injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles. The handles of these knives are first 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). In this painstaking method, various colors of dye are hand brushed onto the handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns that permeate the FRN material.
