    Is that the old style with the belt clip being a integral part of the grip? Or is the belt clip removable/reversible?

    My monitor sucks...

    Belt clip is reversible left/right, but always tip up. Delica 4 lets you go 4 ways with the clip.

    You did great Jchoo!! While I prefer the newer Gen 4 Delica the Gen 3 was also very popular. You should be able to reprofile that tip very easily. I had a friend at work give me his OLD Delica to fix the tip. It has about 1/4 inch missing. This is what I was able to do.

    If anybody has one of the OLDER Delicas with the integral pocket clip - I WANT ONE!!!

    Preferably 50/50 blade - but not mandatory! I just don't like the steel pocket clips.

    I found it at the pawn shop where I was working today - I asked the manager what he wanted for it, he shrugged and said "Idunno, 2 bucks?" Hey, I couldn't have asked for more.

    Ront:

    Wow, 1/4" missing? That looks great! Did you do all the work on a stone, or did you grind/sand to get it where you wanted it?

    Jchoo, it has been a little while since I did this, but I am pretty sure that I used a grinder first, then a course diamond stone and then a finer diamond stone and then the Spyderco Sharpmaker. It did take a while, but the results were rewarding!

    If on a wheel go slow, watch for heat build-up. Might discolor the blade, in extreme cases could spoil the hardening. Use a slow process.

    I'd work that tip back into shape with a stone, no wheel. It's not a big break at all.

    I spent about 10 minutes with medium and fine stones...

    and wound up here. I'm pretty happy with it, considering... I just wish I hadn't scuffed the steel so badly. Oh well, I won't feel bad when I remember it was a $2 knife.

    You're going to EDC that knife? So those marks will be nothing in six months of use.

    Great knife story.

    Definitely EDC. I've been carrying the Gerber as a work knife since cutting up cardboard, etc. trashes an edge, but I'll give this guy a whirl and see how it holds up.
