This is the fourth iteration of this keenly sharp, refined steel blade, offering screw-together construction that's durable and easy to clean. A fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle has proprietary Bi-Directional Texturing for nonslip use with improved ergonomics, while dual skeletonized steel liners to improve strength without adding weight, and also anchor all external components. A razor sharp non-reflective VG-10 blade is coated with black titanium carbonitride, and is flat saber-ground. Crosshatched jimping along the blade's spine further improves grip, and phosphor bronze washers help smooth out the opening action.

Thinking beyond established knife industry practices has allowed Spyderco to introduce new innovations, including one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco remains dedicated to researching and developing improved, better-performing materials with function and reliability, and its unique cutlery line is a result of designing ergonomic, functional tools. The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.

I prefer this newer handle shape, which was introduced several years ago. Nice improvement. The lock is solid, and the pocket clip can be conveniently moved to any of 4 positions.
However, the blade doesn't stay sharp as long as the previous version. The blade is a little bit softer, bringing it down to an "average" Japanese blade from its previous position of above average. It's still good, but no longer uniquely so. Most blades made of ATS55 or 154cm are just as good as VG10.
It is heavier now. The fiberglass/nylon handle has steel liners inside it. Some claim strength and stability as benefits, but the blade still wiggles a little and having read knife forums for many years, bent or broken handles has never been a problem. It isn't "too" heavy, but it's more like average now, while the old version was a good option for anyone wanting to remain as light as possible.
One problem Spyderco sometimes has is with knives requiring washers. The old Delica, with its all-plastic handle, didn't need washers (the handle itself was good enough). The new one uses thin washers between the blade and the steel liners and sometimes, if only rarely, Spyderco will forget to use one, or even use too many. If you get one of these and it doesn't open as smoothly as you expect, check to see if this was done correctly.
It's still a pretty good knife, but the price is slightly higher and the quality, despite added features, is a tiny bit lower, and the competition is better than 10 years ago.Read more ›
As is standard and expected of a Spyderco knife, the blade is hair popping sharp out of the box, with a combination blade of straight and serrated configuration only. The VG-10 blade - a premeium blade steel - is coated with black carbonitrite, along with a blackened pocketclip, giving the entire knife an overall subdued appearence and even feel. The scales are FNR ( fiberglass reinforced nylon, also black )for lightness and reinforced with stainless steel skeletonized liners for strenth. This construction also aids in corrision resistence ( not corrisionproof, this is NOT H-1 steel ) which will simply add to the years of useful life of this knife.
Overall, witness yet another Spyderco victory in the world of lightweight, everyday carry knives.
Also, I still have a bald spot on my leg from when I conducted my own "sharpness test" right after I took it out of the package.
