But I think between the Para3LW and the FRN Chapparal, we now have specialists to either side of the Delica, one for harder work, one for slicing. But I suspect for many, particularly who desire USA-made and enjoy sprints, the P3LW will be a really compelling choice. Haven't handled one yet, though.
That said, a USA-made Delica 5 with the choil and thinner blade and wire clip would be... deeply welcome. That knife as a sprint host? Oh yes.
What about a Chaparral LW/Delica mash-up? Blade stop, stock thickness and 50/50 choil lifted from Chaparral LW, combined with the blade and handle shape of a Delica 4 (modified to accommodate the choil of course).
I'd buy one, USA made in BD1N would be icing on the cake!
