Spyderco Delica 4 Wharncliffe Plain K390 Dark Cyan Blue FRN C11FPWK390
Spyderco's Delica has been a cornerstone of their everyday carry product line since its introduction in 1990. The 4th Generation of the Delica lightweight was upgraded with a 13 mm RoundHole, spine jimping, reinforced blade tip, skeletonized liners, Bi-Directional Textured FRN scales and a four-position screw on clip.
A new twist on the fully flat ground Delica 4 model is the introduction of the iconic Wharncliffe blade profile. Sometimes known as the "Jazzelica" (inspired by Spyderco Forumite, Jazz) the Wharncliffe Delica features a perfectly straight cutting edge and pronounced point for utility and detailed cutting tasks. This version comes with a plain K390 blade and dark cyan blue FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: With a razor sharp plain edge and stunning satin finish the fully flat ground Bohler K390 tool steel blade delivers exceptional edge retention. Wharncliffe blades deliver full power from heel to tip with a fine point for detail work and piercing. Spyderco's ambidextrous Round Hole opener makes for smooth, easy, one hand operation. Present as well is the jimped thumb ramp for added control in both fine and heavy work. Just over 2.5 inches of straight cutting edge makes this an excellent cutting tool you will want to have with you every day.
Handle: Spyderco's Bi-directional textured FRN offers exceptional traction in the hand with contoured edges and an ergonomic design that delivers comfort in the hand until the job is done. The sturdy mid-back lock design is easy to operate and comes with the Boye Dent further enhancing the security by preventing accidental disengagement of the lock when gripping the handle with heavy pressure. A hole at the pommel end allows for easy lanyard attachment.
Carries via a 4-position, stainless steel hourglass pocket clip.
Bohler K390: Bohler K390 is a cold work tool steel made with 3rd Generation particle metallurgy processing specifically developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching operations. K390 is exceptionally tough and free of impurities compared to conventional steels with CPM-10V-level edge retention and increased toughness. As a tool steel K390 is not stainless and requires consideration to prevent corrosion.
