If you already own a Delica or Endura, you have one of the best selling knives Spyderco makes. The knife you have just acquired is a bit different from the normal C10 Endura4 and C11 Delica4 Lightweights. They are now available in a range of new handle colors with full-flat ground blades. Their FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handles come in new vibrant tones including blue, green, brown, gray and purple. Molded onto the handle's surface is Bi-Directional Texturing® for slip-free tactile traction. Inside the handle are dual skeletonized stainless steel liners which strengthen the knife without additional weight and double as an anchor for external and internal components to attach through generating more sturdiness and rigidity. The blades are full flat-ground VG-10 with a thinner highly refined cutting edge and a larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade’s spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze washers smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left-or right-handed clip.

The VG10 is an awesome performer. Performance wise, it blows away AUS8, 420, 440. The only true competitor at this price is the 154CM from Benchmade. VG10 is made in Seki City, Japan, a place known for its ancient history of steel tempering and Samurai sword construction. Furthermore, it provides excellent rust resistance if you get it wet. I have seen this knife left out all night in the rain and snow and not even show a shadow of a blemish. Also, it takes a wicked sharp edge and holds that sharp edge for a long time. However, due to the high hardness of the VG10, you will chip it if the edge comes in contact with other hard objects. Then, you just need to sharpen it out. The VG10 is pretty easy to sharpen given its hardness.
The fiberglass reinforced nylon handles keep the price of this knife down and provide excellent feel and traction. There is a bi-direction grip built into the handle to ensure this high traction. Also, the Spyderco emblem is strategically placed where the pocket clip ends, making it easy to slip onto your pocket without tearing up your pants. Behind these handles are stainless steel liners which reinforce the handles for heavy use. Also, the pocket clip has 4 positions machined into the handles so it is great for lefties and righties for tip-up or tip-down carry. If a deep clean is needed, the handles may be removed and the knife can be completely disassembled.
Overall, this is an extremely user-friendly knife that is completely ambidextrous. This is important to me as a lefty living in a right-handers world. The lockback mechanism is strong and can be actuated on the back of the handle. The spyderhole is a great deployment method which is, again, good for both hands. The blade itself is excellent for cutting boxes, opening mail, and at 3.75 inches, is an adequate size for personal defense if that is an issue. This blade can deployed fastly and smoothly. Also, it does not draw a lot of attention despite its big size. It does not look as threatening as some offerings from Cold Steel like the Recon 1. This is another great blade but it is very intimidating to some.
Overall, I highly recommend this blade for the money. Most blades with VG10 steel are over $100 and this is nearly half that price. It is a great value. However, if you are still not too sure you wanna spend $50-$60 on a knife but like this particular blade, check out the Byrd CaraCara 2. It is also made by Spyderco but is only $20 and it is identical! It is an excellent knife as I own that one as well. You will, however, notice the difference in quality but both are excellent for the price.
