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.

The blade is in the shape known as a "leaf blade". The leaf blade is more or less a modified straight edge knife. The blade is similar to a straight edge with a slight curve in it. This gives the knife the ability to slice similarly to a straight edge and a drop point. The blade is tapered on the sides, beginning about a quarter inch after the jimping ends. The thumb hole, also known as a "Spyder Hole" allows the knife to be opened easily, more easily than a thumb stud. The thumb hole does not sacrifice any strength, lightens the knife slightly, and can be easily opened with gloves. The edge is well ground, right at about 30º inclusive, which is right where spyderco sharpens most (possibly all) of their beveled knives. The blade also has a nice shine to it. This is a near mirror finish, about 70% like a mirror. This helps prevent rust, and makes the knife easier to clean. The only downside to this finish is that the knife is easier to scratch as opposed to a satin or stonewashed finish.
The steel, VG-10 is a very high quality steel. The steel is moderately difficult to sharpen, this however, is easily countered with frequent touch-ups on a strop or fine stone. The steel has a fine grain to it, finer than S30v, yet not quite as fine as 13c26n. The moderately high amount of carbon, and the moderate amount of Vanadium, Manganese, and Molybdenum are the primary reasons for this steels wear resistance. This wear resistance is noticed on a stone as well. The steel feels like it slides across the stone more then the stone scratches the edge. This is solved by using a little more downward pressure when sharpening on a stone.Read more ›
Handle wise, the scales and embedded liners are exactly the same on both including the 4 position pocket clip. Same feel in the hand, same lock back with boye dent and same great Spyderco quality feel. Pretty identical in every way except for ,obviously, The FFG Blade. Now we get to the differences...
Even though we have identical blade shapes and jimpimp the FFG blade differs in a huge way in reference to the blade spine. I was very much expecting to receive a blade similar to the Spyderco Tenacious or Persistence (both have FFG blades), which both have a nice thick blade and spine. Not so as the spine of the FFG starts off fairly thick but tapers steadily to a fine point. The tips of the Tenacious and Persistence are noticeably thicker than the FFG Delica. That's not to say that this blade is weak at the tip (nicer VG10 steel), but thinner none-the-less. I would be cautious in how I use that tip as not to snap it, but then again both versions are not really considered a hard use type of knife.
That brings me to another issue I have with the blade and that is the Spyder Hole. The edges of the hole are quite sharp and really dig into your skin or nail (depending on how you deploy with the Spyder Hole), not smoothed out like my other Delicas I have. A minor nit pick, but you can really fell the difference almost as if the Spyder Hole was not finished in a sense.Read more ›
