I really can't imagine getting a better overall EDC with this pricepoint. Great steel. Out of the box this is one of the sharpest knives I've seen. It will truly shave the hair off your knuckles. The overall feel is light and the ergonomics are hard to beat. Highly recommended!

This is one of my top 10 EDC blades of all time!

GOOD- price, VG-10 Steel, color options, 4 way pocket clip, very lightweight, handle fills out my large size hands, slices through anything so well, resharpens very easily.

BAD- some people don't like lockback knives.

The Spyderco Delica FFG is the zenith of EDC blades and affordability. For under $60, you get one of the best build, ergo-friendly, and high-quality knives on the market. This knife should be in any collectors collection.

I carried this knife for the greater part of a year and a half extensivly, it always found its way in my pocket.

The Ergos are perfect for my hand and the FFG blade makes for a fantastic slicer. While the FRN handles does make this less of a "gentlemans" carry and may turn some users off, it provides an amazing amount of grip and confort that amazed me out of the box.

Add good quality steel, fantastic construction and quality and this knife is easily the highest value blade on the market.

10/10 any day of the week.

great little knife! i always avoided the delicas due to the fact i grew up seeing and handling the fake knock-offs you see in the gas stations and flea markets. then one day it clicked, for it to be SO widly copied, there has to be a reason.

my only complaint is the paint on the pocket clip. it wears within hours of first use and doesnt wear well like a DLC coating or similar. a simple fix was a quick sanding and it was good to go.
i own a couple other spydercos and a benchmade, the delica is my go to knife when i know im going to be doing alot of cutting, solid EDCable workhorse.

I just picked up a purple FFG Delica and am blown away by the quality of this "cheap" FRN Spyderco. I have never owned a delica before, only a G10 Endura which I found WAY too big, but the Delica is perfect. The blade size is perfect for edc, and the handle is the perfect size for easy opening and closing. If you are scared about the purple ffg model, do not fear, it is not a girly purple but a dark matte style purple. And on top of this, the clip is a black matte rather than high gloss. This is a very well constructed and solid feeling knife because of the added metal backspacer. This stacks up just as well against high end spydies with premium materials such as g10/carbon fiber etc.. The FFG Delica is an awesome value, premium steel, great ergonomics and just plain quality.

Pick one up!

So First off i want to say that even though this style of knife is covered more then its fair share i beleive that my review with the ZDP-189 steel will hopefully expand and already expanded info stream

bought the knife second hand, was NIB and it was amazing, the FRN handles were incredibly ergonomic especially with the bidirectional patterns. hardly feel the pocket clip in hand (something that truly bothers me when i do)

the action was as smooth as oil on glass, have yet to oil it, the phosphorous bronze washers really are a wonder in the knife world.

The blade being of ZDP-189 steel is amazing, to me it takes all the fuss out of the elements and hits the basics, lots of carbon, lots of chromium, and here we are with a steel that competes with S30V, VG-10, 154CM, ATS34, BG-42 etc, in all the use its gone through the most its had done was a minute or two on a ceramic stone, stropping and its back to a knife i can regularly shave with

I'm sure you all know all about the Delica, so I'm going to make this a FFG vs. saber grind review.

The FFG blade cuts MUCH, much better than the saber grind. It is on the list of thinner blades in Spyderco's lineup at 2.5mm, and the FFG makes it VERY thin at the edge (as well as the tip.) I don't think Spyderco has a better slicer.

Also, it seems that the blade continues cutting longer than the saber ground version due to the thinner blade profile.

The greatest strength of the FFG Delica is also its weakness: thinness. The tip is so incredibly thin that it's very flexible. Don't ever pry with it, or it might snap off.

Other than that, I think this is an excellent knife. The only reason I gave it an 8 on the build quality (some flaws, good performance) is because I bought 2 of these, and both of them have ridiculously off-centered blades.

Not sure why you would be prying with a small folder like this.
