Zome (pronounced "zoh-may") is a class of Japanese handicrafts that focuses on dyeing textiles. This ancient art form includes many different methods of creating patterns on cloth using dyes derived from plants, flowers, fruit, and other natural sources and is closely related to many aspects of Japanese history and culture.

Inspired by this rich artistic heritage, Spyderco's Zome knives are unique variations of their lightweight models, which feature injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles. The handles are molded in a light base color and then individually hand dyed by expert Japanese artisans. Using a technique reminiscent of traditional hiki-zome (brush dyeing), various colors of dye are hand brushed onto the handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns. Like Japan's classical dyeing methods, the special dyes used completely permeate the FRN to permanently color it.

This Delica 4 Lightweight boasts all the defining features of its breed, including a full-flat-ground VG10 stainless steel blade, a sturdy back lock mechanism, skeletonized stainless steel liners, and a four-position pocket clip. Its injection-molded FRN handle showcases a brilliant hand-dyed zome pattern in shades of green.

If you're looking for a reliable workhorse knife with one-of-a-kind character, this is it.

Pros: Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great EDC knife!
The knife came razor sharp out of the box. Quality is what you would expect from a Spyderco knife, top notch! Ergonomics of the knife is spot on. Don't let the sub-3 inches blade fool you. This knife is more than enough for your edc needs. All in all, perfectly happy with the knife and the service provided by knife center.

Nice scale choice
Typical Delica greatness with a refreshing scale color combo. Kind of camo-y, but still refined. Great addition to the collection.

New EDC
I have been looking for a new EDC for about a year. When it comes to a piece I'm going to keep on me 24/7 I'm pretty picky. The Spyderco Delicate 4 was the perfect fit for me. Blade, weight, size, material and the fact that it's just a bad #ss little knife.
