Delica® 4 FRN Zome Grey/Black Damascus Exclusive
C11ZGYD OUT OF STOCK
This knife was produced for and available exclusively through Sportsman's Supply (www.sportsmans.com) and their sales channels.
The most unique feature of this knife is its breathtaking Damascus steel blade. Expertly crafted from D.P.S. 15 Damascus, it consists of a VG-10 stainless steel core flanked by two pieces of 15-layer Damascus. The resulting 31-layer construction is highlighted by the blade's saber grind, which reveals the dramatic contrast between the layers in two different ways and offers an exceptional balance of strength and high-performance edge geometry.
Not to be outdone, the handle of this Delica 4 Exclusive combines grey fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) with a black Zome treatment. The lightweight handle components are first injection molded in a base grey 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 remarkable expression of the iconic Delica 4 Lightweight design, this Exclusive knife is sure to become a coveted collector's item.
