The groundbreaking Delica is a pioneer of lightweight performance, one-hand open pocketknives that revolutionized the market in 1990. This iconic folder quickly became Spyderco's top bestseller, and their commitment to constant improvement has never wavered.

Spyderco's dedication to refining and upgrading their knives led to the creation of the CQI (Constant Quality Improvement) process. Throughout the Delica's CQI journey, Spyderco tirelessly tweaked ergonomics, perfected blade steels, and fine-tuned performance.

The latest models feature screw construction, making cleaning and adjusting a breeze. The handles are crafted from fiberglass reinforced nylon and molded with Bi-Directional Texturing, providing optimal traction and enhanced ergonomics. Inside the handle, dual skeletonized stainless steel liners add strength without compromising weight, acting as an anchor for all internal and external components, ensuring sturdiness and rigidity.

The VG-10 blade is flat saber-ground, boasting a stronger tip and a larger 13mm opening hole. Slip-resistant jimping has been added to the spine of the blades for improved grip.

Smooth open and close action is facilitated by phosphor bronze washers, while the clip has been upgraded to a four-way design, allowing for tip-up or tip-down carry in both left and right-handed configurations.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.

From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.

We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.

Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.

Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.

As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
