It was only a matter of time… once Spyderco brought out a range of colors for the Delica with flat ground blades, we knew pink was coming soon enough. Well, that time is now. The Delica with a flat ground blade may be the best Every Day Carry made-in our humble opinion. Having it in pink makes it a great choice for the fairer sex-or as I have always maintained, a great choice for a guy who doesn’t want his friends stealing his knife…

More information from the manufacturer:
If you already own a Delica or Endura, you have one of the bestselling knives Spyderco makes. These models are a bit different from the normal C10 Endura4 and C11 Delica 4 Lightweights. They are in a range of handle colors with full-flat ground blades.
Their FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handles come in vibrant tones including pink, 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.
