    Just not the same...

    I lost my first Delica and picked up another one to replace it. But it just doesn't feel the same. It's stiff and just doesn't have the smoothness I was able to get my first one to.

    Hopefully given a little bit of time and use it will break in and become a suitable replacement for the Delica you lost. As for the lost Delica, lets hope it ends up in the hands of someone who will recognize the knife for what it is and give it a suitable home.

    I have many Delicas and can completely see your point. Some of mine are still new and they feel so stiff compared to my users.

    Give it some time, it should break in.

    It'll break in, but it will never be the same if the first one held any sentimental value

    I bought an Endura Wave in 2006 and EDC'd it for years. Knife went to places like Japan, Germany and Switzerland (Yeah, I know that was stupid). Went on camping trips, white water rafting etc. It was well worked in. I lost it about six months ago....and I know it is around my house somewhere...because I never lay my knife down without picking it back up. Never lost a knife before. So I broke down and bought another Wave and it is not the same.....Oh, well....
