Spyderco has teamed up with Kahr Arms to release this Kahr-branded Delica 4. Unlike most gun-branded knives, this one will not disappoint. It’s currently available for pre-order, but it won’t ship until May.
The Spyderco Delica is one of the truly classic EDC knife patterns, and four generations of it have been clipped to Americans’ back pockets over the last twenty-plus years. This is a few years longer than Kahr’s pistols have been slinging lead downrange, but no matter; both manufacturers have built excellent reputations for quality and reliability.
The Kahr Delica 4 is slightly different than the standard catalog model, and the differences go beyond the obvious “KAHR” logo on the blade. The Kahr Delica 4 has no jimping on the back of the blade hump, and its 2.5″ FFG blade is just a skosh shorter than the catalog-standard 2.88″ blade.
It’s only available through Kahr Arms (not from Spyderco) and this exclusivity comes at a small price premium. Catalog-standard Delica 4s have street prices in the mid $50s, while the Kahr-only version will set you back almost a whole C-note.
