    Barbie knife :P

    This is another one of my latest acquisitions courtesy of the infamous Spyderco factory. The Spyderco Delica Pink :P Limited Edition - sprint run of 500 (increased to 1000 total by the end of year) units. Highly collectible, highly desirable by many, especially for conversions of NKP's and for the female population

    Barbie knife cont'd

    Detail shots showing:

    Jimping - much finer jimping on the spine of the blade on the Delica.


    Top of blade - grind on the top of the Native is chamfered on both sides, Delica's is flat


    Top of handle - here you can see the flat handle of the Delica as opposed to the contoured (3D) handle of the Native III


    Black clip - you can see the beautiful contrast of the black against pink. The clip shape reminds me of the front end of a platypus . You might also note the nice detail of the lanyard hole going through the clip....nice one :P


    Note the all screw construction of the knife. Makes for an excellent molestation base. Once I get a few more of these I think I might try some "touch-ups".



    The pink is a very very hot pink. If you are concerned about your manlihood then I'd recommend you stay away from this one. Otherwise it is beautiful ;D

    I reckon a black bladed version of this would be an absolute knockout. Matching the black clip :P ;D Sal, howzaboutit ?? black blade, black clip, pink handles.... do a quick photoshop and tell me it is not a hottie

    Cheers all
    Daniel

    Our great Australian sunlight does intensify the colours of pretty much everything slightly. More subdued light in the European countries tend to mellow things out a bit more.....but it is a HOT pink in my eyes !!!

    Put your sunglasses on before taking this out of its Green Spydie box
