Delica® 4 FRN Zome Desert Camo Exclusive
C11ZFDCMO OUT OF STOCK
This knife was produced for and available exclusively through Sportsman's Supply (www.sportsmans.com) and their sales channels.
Hands down one of Spyderco's most popular and enduring models, the original Delica was instrumental in pioneering the concept of lightweight, injection-molded folding knife handles in the early 1990's. Now in its fourth-generation of design evolution, the highly evolved Delica 4 Lightweight has inspired numerous variations and is a natural canvas for Exclusive projects.
The defining feature of this unique expression of the Delica is its desert camouflage Zome handle. Zome (pronounced "zoh-may") is a class of traditional Japanese handicrafts that focuses on dyeing textiles. Inspired by this rich cultural and artistic heritage, the injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced- nylon (FRN) handles of Spyderco's Zome knives are molded in a light base color and then individually hand dyed by expert Japanese artisans. Using a technique reminiscent of classical hiki-zome (brush dyeing), darker colors of dye are hand brushed onto the handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns. In this case, the color palette and pattern replicate military desert camouflage.
The other features of this remarkable knife include a full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade crafted from VG-10 stainless steel, a sturdy back lock mechanism, and a four-position hourglass pocket clip that supports all possible carry configurations.
A truly unique expression of the Delica 4 Lightweight design, this Exclusive knife is sure to be popular with serious knife users, military enthusiasts, and collectors alike.
