How many Delicas are out there?

Postby ZrowsN1s » Fri Oct 05, 2018 6:26 pm

This is a question mostly for Sal, but if anyone else knows feel free to chime in.

How many Delicas have been produced since the model was introduced? A million? Less? More?

Not looking for an exact figure, just curious. Someone at work had been asking me about my Jade M4 Native 5 and asking where they could get one, and I was explaining to them it was one of maybe 1,200 in the world. And it got me thinking whats the most produced Spyderco? I figured there has to be more Delicas than anything else.

Not enough! I bought my dad one as part of his thank you gift on my wedding day, and now I think I need a matching one for myself.

More than a million he humbly says! Any knife that has been produced in those numbers is a significant knife and the Delica is a home run.

The photo above was taken a few years back.
This is the latest one and it needs to update again. The number of variations of the Delica I have at the moment stands at 88 and I have many more to find.
