Inspired by a request from one of Spyderco's customers who uses a Delica 4 Lightweight every day in his job, this variation features a flat-ground Wharncliffe-style blade crafted from VG10 stainless steel. The perfectly straight cutting edge of this blade profile provides the maximum transfer of cutting pressure—all the way to the tip—and provides an acute point that excels at detailed work. All other features of this workhorse design are consistent with the standard Delica 4 Lightweight model.
An equal partner in the history-making accomplishments of the Endura, the Delica 4 offers all the same outstanding qualities in a more compact package. The Delica 4 Lightweight family includes a full range of handle colors, blade grinds, and edge configurations, as well as a blunted training version and a model with the Emerson Opening Feature. All lightweight models feature skeletonized stainless steel liners for strength and textured handles molded from tough fiberglass reinforced nylon.
