    Goodbye Kershaw Vapor, Hello Spyderco Delica

    Picked up a Kershaw Vapor at Sports Authority a little while ago as a first EDC knife. Trying to open this thing has really hurt the joints in my hand. I ordered a Spyderco Delica from Amazon and it just got in today. What a world of difference!!! Goodbye Kershaw Vapor, Hello Spyderco Delica!

    Although I'm a fan of Kershaw, their quality has gone down the past few years. I'm still a fan of the Spyderco's though, as they still use VG-10 steel for their blades.

    Goto walmart.com and you can order a bunch of spyderco's at walmarts prices. Even better is you can have them shipped to your closest store for free.

    The Amazon price was a little better than the Walmart price. I also have an SOG Flash I on order from BotachTactical, so it will be interesting comparing the two. I'm signed up for a Defensive Folding Knife class at Insights Training in December, so hopefully I can learn to use them too :)

    But damn, this Delica is smoooooottthhhhh.

    Spyderco's have a habit of multiplying, be careful!

    I've owned a good couple dozen Spydercos and Kershaws. The Kershaw you replaced was a pretty low-end one, and you replaced it with what is arguably the flagship knife of Spyderco. I LOVE the Delica. Like the waved one better, though.

    For anyone interested, if you think you love Spyderco now, try a ZDP blade!!! Easily the sharpest knives I own! (think laser)

    Good choice. I have two Delicas: One slick blade and one partially serrated. Love 'em both!

    definitely a step up

    Thumbs up

    Delica, Endura, Native FRN. Nice rigs. Easy on the hands, easy to deploy, protects the hand well during deployment, brutally sharp when prepped correctly. The Native FRN, in particular, is quite strong. None are field survival knives, but they work exceptionally well as pocket knives. I find the sharpness fades relatively quickly, as compared to some other units I have had, though this is the only negative aspect I can think of. Highly recommended.
