In 1990 Spyderco shook things up by introducing two knives, the Delica and Endura. First of their kind on the market, both folders 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 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. 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 bushings smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip.

    Spyderco Delica 4 FRN

    Posted by Bunnyhugger on 9th Nov 2021

    This is a classic for a reason: the design is pretty well perfect, and the ergonomics are sublime. It is lightweight, but feels really robust. Also, I didn't know what sharp was, until I used this blade!

    Buy one

    Absolutely great knife. In my opinion if you have a proper work reason for a lock knife outside of the home you absolutely can't go wrong with any of the Delica 4 variations for the UK. Right size, right look, right functionality, right everything, it's a total Goldilocks knife for the UK. I got the serrated version of the Delica 4 and I also got the serrated Para 3 lightweight. In my opinion the Delica 4 in VG10 is better than the Para 3 lightweight in CTS BD1N and twenty odd quid cheaper. See my review of the Para 3 lightweight. They are kind of similar, arguably the Para 3 lightweight is (sort of) a fancier redesigned Delica in many ways but the Delica is still tops. and always will be. Thirty odd years of history and continued development just make it a great all round medium small locknife for all round daily use. Buy one, especially if you're not into knives as such and it's basically going to be your only knife.

    Over the years I've had about a dozen spyderco's and they have been a bit hit and miss. My favourite without question is the Squeak, lovely quality, everything about it is just right, and i can tell already that this delica is going to be just as good. Solid little knife, nice steel good handle. My only gripe and its not really a gripe is that i personally prefer the wire pocket clip and it if had one it would be perfection. Lastly nice straight square back edge for fastening into a sharpening jig.

    Outstanding

    Posted by ChrisinHove on 29th Dec 2013

    I ordered this after being dismayed by the quality of a Boker Plus blade, and I am delighted with it (and the service from HH). Highly recommended, particularly if you appreciate good quality design, steel, manufacture and ergonomics (and are happy to pay for it).

    Work horse.

    Posted by Dan on 4th Oct 2013

    Owned this blade for 24 Hrs so no kind of long term review. But, for the money, this is a very light weight, very sharp and hard working knife. Cut through a 150mm twin wall pipe today and upset all the lads who had been using a full on timber saw. They'd take a couple of minutes, it'd take barely 5 seconds... Very nice blade! Looks "cheap" enough that nobody would bother stealing it. Covered in cr** and mud, it washed right off and now looks new again. Now I don't give a damn for cosmetics, but I've owned a few knives (Cold steel/ Buck etc', etc', etc') This is right up there. It weighs nothing and is slim enough to keep checking it's even there in your pocket, first day out. It gets my vote!

    What a fantastic knife. Sharp out of the box, comfortable in the hand, fast deployment, who needs an assisted knife when you have a delica? Usual great service from H/H

    Lightweight heavyweight

    Posted by Outdoors Dad on 2nd Jun 2011

    I've had the fully serrated version of the Delica for near 25 years now and it is still going strong, although I have allowed it some spare time nowadays. Cuts anything sensible without complaint, but the serrations do limit it use. The combo is a far better all rounder. But for a lightweight knife this is a true heavyweight performer.

    Good allrounder lightweight and sharp as a razor. A nice change from my redpoint buck knife.
