Delica® 4 Lightweight Flat Ground HAP 40
This limited-edition Sprint Run combines the proven features and benefits of the popular Delica 4 Lightweight with a laminated blade crafted from HAP40 and SUS410 steels. The center layer of the full-flat-ground blade is made from HAP40—an advanced high-speed tool steel produced by the powder metallurgy process. HAP40’s generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and cobalt give it exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance, both ideal properties in a high-performance blade steel. The HAP40 core is sandwiched between layers of SUS410—a martensitic stainless steel that provide increased strength and improved corrosion resistance.
All the other features of this unique knife are the defining qualities of the Delica Lightweight, including skeletonized stainless steel liners, a sturdy back lock mechanism, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales with Bi-Directional Texturing, a Trademark Round Hole™ for easy one-handed opening, and a versatile four-position pocket clip. Like the other members of Spyderco’s HAP40 Sprint Run family, the durable FRN handle of this Delica Lightweight is injection molded in a distinctive burnt-orange color.
