The Spyderco Delica blade is a formulation of high-grade carbon and steel that holds a razor-sharp edge. Titanium Carbonitride is bonded to the steel, giving it high rust and scratch resistance, while providing a Rockwell hardness of RC-90. Note the Spyderco trademark thumb hole that allows the user to open the blade one-handed, even in the dark.
The Zytel handle combines strength with light weight. Zytel is a nylon composite reinforced with 33% glass fiber. The patented volcano grip handle offers sure grip and maximum control, and is fashioned with a lanyard hole. Only fine-grain exotic production stainless steel is used in the handle hardware, for years of rust-free use. Delica with Plain Edge blade.
