SP11PGRE: Delica 4 - Green

The knife industry is constantly pushing the envelope searching for, and testing, higher performance blade steels. ZDP189 is rapidly asserting itself as an up-and-coming steel. It's a powdered metal made by Hitachi that has phenomenal chemistry with 3% carbon. The hardness is around 64Rc and edge retention is exceptional. This solid ZDP-189 steel blade is the hottest, hardest and highest performing steel in the knife industry today.

Spyderco Delica in ZDP-189
Spyderco Delica is a great EDC knife. Just the right size for every day carry. The blade steel ZDP-189 is awesome. Comes Razer sharp from the factory, holds a great edge. The edge can also be polished like a mirror. Wasn't sure if I'd like the color British Racing Green but took a chance on it and I love it. It's a dark green and it looks great. This knife is a favorite in my rotation of EDC knifes.

Godfather of EDC
Its one of the best EDC knives out there, its so lightweight that I can totally forget that Im wearing a knife, the back log is okay, its not my favorite lock but the lock is solid and reliable, there is enough grip on the handles for all EDC tasks I can imagine. The thin blade is a perfect slicer but of course its not a survival knife. Well and ZDP189 is a very very good steel for edge rentention, its harder to sharpen then VG10 but the ZDP189 fits very well to the Delica and Delica's destiny ;-)

Nice EDC knife
At the time I ordered the Delica 4 my normal EDC was a Spyderco Dragonfly 2 in VG-10. I am very happy with the Dragonfly, but had run into a couple of instances where a longer blade would have been better. In addition my son has a Dragonfly 2 in ZDP-189 and he really likes the ZDP-189 steel. So this version of the Delica 4 gave me the opportunity to get a slightly longer blade along with ZDP-189 steel. When I first decided to try a longer EDC, I purchased a Ken Onion Ripple. But over time I have migrated back to the Dragonfly, mainly due to weight and the Ripple's action tends to need frequent cleaning to stay smooth and effortless in opening. The Delica is much lighter than the Ripple, and has not made itself a nuisance in the pocket. Besides the light weight, the blade came very sharp and has retained that sharpness. I am not a big proponent of the pocket clip on my EDC, so I will probably end up removing the clip on the Delica. The clip on my Dragonfly is a wire clip and is more aesthetically pleasing than the clip that come on the Delica. A positive feature is that the clip can be re-positioned for either tip up or tip down on either side of the scales. After a month's time I am very happy with this knife.
