Great value. Well designed knife
Wow! I wasn't expecting a lot for $20.00 bucks, but this one really came through. If you're thinking of purchasing a Spyderco Delica, but you don't want to drop the $65.00 dollars, this would be a great option. The AUS 8 blade steel is actually the same steel that the Delica used to be made of. There are a few small sacrifices that you have to make, such as no steel liners (which most of us really don't need on a day to day basis), and a pocket clip w/ a single pin connection. This allows the clip to move just a bit; but nothing serious. The only other negative is the rough hole opening, which was mentioned in a previous review. I did notice this, but mine wasn't even bad enough to worry with. All in all, this is a great value, and I would love to have the Orange version if it wasn't paired with that goofy black blade.
