Delica® 4 FRN Red/Black Zome CPM 20CV Exclusive
C11ZFRDBK OUT OF STOCK
This unique knife was produced for and available exclusively through DLT Trading (www.dlttrading.com) and their sales channels.
The first defining feature of this elite knife is its full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade, which is precision machined from Crucible® Industries' CPM® 20CV. CPM 20CV is a highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel that contains a high volume of vanadium carbides and the highest amount of chromium of any vanadium-rich stainless steel currently available. This potent combination of elements gives it a remarkable combination of high wear resistance, superior corrosion resistance, good impact toughness, and excellent polishability. These properties are further enhanced by the powder metallurgy process, which ensures a very fine grain size and uniform distribution of the alloys throughout the steel.
Equally unique, the handle of this Delica 4 Exclusive combines red fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) with a black Zome treatment. The lightweight handle components are first injection molded in a base red color. They are then hand dyed using a painstaking process called Zome (pronounced "zoh-may"). Inspired by traditional Japanese art forms used to dye textiles, expert artisans hand brush a black dye onto each handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns. This labor-intensive technique is reminiscent of classical hiki-zome (brush dyeing) and makes every one of these knives an individual work of art.
A truly distinctive expression of one of Spyderco's most iconic models, this Exclusive Delica 4 is sure to please both discriminating end users and collectors alike.
