Since starting spyderco we’ve been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and Radical innovations to the knife culture including: one-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. We didn’t go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we’re here for more selfish Reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key. Someone once said to sal glesser, spyderco’s owner, “you must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.” true again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we’ll never be called unusable or undependable. Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing.
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 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 steel blade is flat saber ground, with a remarkably strong tip and 0.5-inch blade hole. 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.
