    Reference: Disassembled Delica + Pocket Clip Paint Removal (pics)

    I decided to clean my Delica today so I thought I would share a few pics for reference of what a disassembled Delica looks like. Also I stripped the black paint from the pocket clip, it didn't look so good all scratched up. I used a bit of steel wool and some nail polish remover and the paint came right off. I then cleaned it with a bit of steel polish. It's not perfect but I much prefer the stripped pocket clip, it fits in nicer with the satin blade and screws I think. I also put a drop of 2 in 1 oil on the washers before re-assembly and the knife feels a bit smoother than before.

    on with the pics

    Looks great!

    Seems to be an oder model, as the New coating for the clips is more durable

    I like the satin clip look and thanks for the exploded views of the Delica.

    Thanks guys! I got the knife in October 2013, so it is not so old but then again it could have been on the dealer's shelf for a while before he sent it to me. I know that the paint on the Super Blue pocket clips is different but I don't know about the rest of the production models. I have a Super Blue Stretch coming next week so I will let you know.

    I ordered and installed stainless clips for all my delicas and endura. I think it looks better than black.
