SP11PGYW: C11PGYW Delica 4 Emerson Opener
If knives could be created in the same way we choose players for fantasy football league teams, every hardcore knife knut would recruit features and characteristics they like best from different knife companies and combine them into their favorite knife. Spyderco will undoubtedly fulfill many knife knuts knife fantasy picks with the introduction of the Delica and Endura with Emerson's opening feature. These models combine all that's functional and performance-based in a Spyderco folder with the blade-opening feature made popular and patented by Ernest Emerson of Emerson Knives.

The Emerson opening feature is a hook curving out the top of the knife's blade. When removing the knife from a front pocket it catches the pocket's edge quickly opening the knife blade ready to use. The knife can also be taken out of the pocket without engaging the opening feature by pulling it straight up and out with your fingers on top of the closed blade.

Delicas and Enduras with Emerson's opening feature have screw construction making cleaning and adjusting easier. Their gray fiberglass reinforced nylon handles are molded with Bi-Directional Texturing® for traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners strengthen the knife without additional weight and create an anchor for external and internal components to attach through for more 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 washers smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip.

Pros: Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Love it
I was interested in a knife with the Emerson wave opener that wouldn't break the bank and as I have been interested in spyderco knives this was a great first spyderco for me. The opener works fantastically and is smooth as butter. The knife is lightweight and fights in your pocket well. Overall I love the knife and will be buying more spyderco knives in the future. Side note the spyder hole opening takes a little bit to get used to it, but once you do it is amazing.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Great for every day carry
Quickly became my every day carry first thing I it came out of the box. My previous knife (which truthfully felt better in my hand) took up more room in my pocket than I was comfortable with. The Delica 4 fits nicely in my pocket and takes up little room. The blade is sharp and holds an edge well. The wave feature works every time. It's an attractive knife and meets all of my needs. I hesitate to call it a drawback but the handle doesn't feel as natural in my hand as my previous every day carry. It's to be expected when you change from a massive knife that hardly leaves room for a phone though. The benefits far outweigh the sole "con" which isn't really a con at all. It feels fine.. just not as natural as what I've grown used to. I would cheerfully put my credibility on the line and recommend to anyone looking for an every day carry.
