Price Paid: gift from a friend

I own a Spyderco Delica 4 Emerson Opener and am happy with this knife.

This knife I found very good, is easy handling, fits nicely in your hand, is strong and holds up to abuse.

For those who do not know, the wave system, patented by Emerson, is the hook or ledge to put on the back of the time so that when the knife out of his pocket, snaps and open as you are pulling them.

This system is probably the fastest there at the time of opening a knife from his pocket, even more than an assisted or automatic.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $60

I use the plain edge version of this knife and it is great. I have three Sydercos and I use this one exclusively for work. I am in construction so it gets used and abused. It is one tough knife! I have had it in my pocket at work for about 4 years so it will stand the test of time.

The VG-10 is a great durable blade steel, not to hard to make sharpening a chore, or not to soft to loose its edge quickly. I keep on top of it with sharpening about every month or two. If you stay on top of it then it only takes about 10 minutes on the ceramic stone and its like brand new.

This is definitely a solid long lasting workhorse of a knife!

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

This knife by Spyderco is an evolutionary work in progress and the next level is here with the new Delica4. It features screw construction making cleaning and adjusting easier. The fiberglass reinforced nylon handles come molded with Bi-Directional Texturing(R) for preferred traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners make the knife stronger without adding weight and make an anchor for all external and internal components to attach through adding sturdiness and rigidity. The Endura 4's VG-10 blade is flat saber-ground with a stronger tip and larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade's spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze bushings smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip. Blade picture is a ComboEdge Blade. This knife is also available in SpyderEdge and PlainEdge.

Only one edge image is available for each style, but multiple edge types are available to purchase from. In 1990 Spyderco shook things up by introducing two knives, the Delica and Endura. First of their kind on the market, both folders opened up the knife market to lightweight performance, one-hand open pocketknives that just about everyone could afford. They settled as Spyderco's top two bestsellers and their improvement hasn't slowed since. Refinement has been so ongoing and continual Spyderco tagged the updating/upgrading process with the term CQI- Constant Quality Improvement. During the Endura and Delica's CQI journey Spyderco tweaked ergonomics, refined blade steels and fine-tuned their performance countless times. They are an evolutionary work in progress and the next level is here with the new Endura4 and Delica4. Both models now have screw construction making cleaning and adjusting easier. The fiberglass reinforced nylon handles come molded with Bi-Directional Texturing(R) for preferred traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners make the knife stronger without adding weight and make an anchor for all external and internal components to attach through adding sturdiness and rigidity. Their VG-10 blades are flat saber-ground with a stronger tip and 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.
