Beautifully unique blade - Stiff blade deployment - Delica4 vs. Endura brief thoughts
on November 12, 2016
Beautiful blade!! Great if you're looking for a unique Delica4. The only thing to be aware is that blade deployment will be "tight". You won't be able to flick this out. I think this is inherent with the damascus blade, titanium body, and the design. I've tried playing around with the body and pivot screws to no avail.
I also have the Endura version which is just as beautiful. For those who are debating over which one to get. Both are great knives and it depends on what you're looking for. After playing with both, I personally like the Delica4 as an EDC due to size. It's a nice size for a pocket knife. Feels nice in the hand, compact. I have medium sized hands. But some folks may feel the Delica4 is not substantial enough and want a bigger knife. This is where the Endura comes in. It's a much long knife by ~2" and slightly larger. Good for people with really large hands. I like it for just the fact it's more substantial and you get more of the beautiful blade to admire. However, it's not an EDC for me but more of a knife to have and admire every so often.
People may be turned off in the "stiffness" in deploying the blade. This is the only drawback here. I wish I can flick it out as easily as some of my other blades. It makes it more enjoyable. But again, this is quickly overshadowed by the beauty and uniqueness of the blade.
I'm not yet an avid blade collector, just starting out. Good for people just getting into the hobby.
