Spyderco has partnered with the National Law Enforcement Officer Museum Foundation on this commemorative knife for a great cause. The Delica is one of Spyderco’s flagship knives and a portion of the proceeds for this model will be donated to the museum project. The Full Flat Ground Delica4 was introduced in 2010 and has become and instant hit in the knife community. The thinner blade profile is an absolute breeze to carry at only 2.4 oz. and it slices through coarse material with less drag than a traditional hollow grind. Now you can get this awesome blade in addition to assisting a good cause with the Spyderco NLEOMF Delica4. You can see this at www.knifecenter.com.
If you already own a Delica or Endura, you have one of the best selling knives Spyderco makes. The knife you have just acquired is a bit different from the normal C10 Endura4 and C11 Delica4 Lightweights. They are now available in a range of new handle colors with full-flat ground blades.
Their FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handles come in new vibrant tones including blue, green, brown, gray and purple. Molded onto the handle’s surface is Bi-Directional Texturing® for slip-free tactile traction. Inside the handle are dual skeletonized stainless steel liners which strengthen the knife without additional weight and double as an anchor for external and internal components to attach through generating more sturdiness and rigidity.
The blades are full flat-ground VG-10 with a thinner highly refined cutting edge and a larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade’s spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze washers smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left-or right-handed clip.
Spyderco Delica4 Blue National Law Enforcement Officer Museum Foundation
In the year 2000, the United States Congress and President Bill Clinton authorized the establishment of a National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C. The goal of this museum is to tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research and education. Designed as a natural extension of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, it will be the largest and most comprehensive museum to honor the duty and sacrifice of America’s law enforcement officers. Building and exhibit designs for the museum are currently in progress and countless artifacts are being collected and catalogued to document the contributions and accomplishments of our nation’s law enforcement officers.
To support this worthy cause and to continue to do our part to honor our country’s law enforcement personnel, Spyderco is proud to offer a special edition of our popular Delica knife. The Commemorative National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Foundation Delica features a blue handle and a laser-engraved logo of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), the organization responsible for both the memorial and museum projects.
Spyderco will donate a portion of the sales of every commemorative Delica to the NLEOMF to support the museum project. The museum is currently scheduled to open in late 2013.
