    Just seen them a lot on here and since I open boxes a lot I like the low profile of the FFG. Doesn't bind as much on tape/adhesive. Always liked the look of them too and the size is perfect for me.

    I love my little orange Delica, it took me by surprise as I really wasn't expecting much of it, as it happens it's kicked a few more expensive knives out of bed, I picked up a Superblueâ„¢ and was going to sell this one but I can't bring myself to part with it, I quite fancy some Wilkins scales buy I'm put off by the price.
    I snapped the pocket clip yesterday so I need to find a new one.

    The best EDC knife ever.
    I no longer have one :( but I will buy a new one sooner or later.
    (I sold it and kept the Mini Grip instead, which was a bad decision. While the Mini Grip is a good knife, the Delica is even better).

    My very first spyderco was a delica circa 1996. It got stolen from my by some jerk at Ft. Lewis, WA. This past winter I (finally) picked up another one. It has not left my pocket since. I've pretty much stopped carrying my other knives, except for the occasional carry of my Alox Pioneer for the tools.

    The knife is lightweight. It is sturdy enough. The VG-10 steel is decent. If I were to break it or lose it, it is affordable to replace. It looks fantastic (to me anyway). It is not scary to non-knife people, especially with the blue handle. It just works every time.

    I've thought about more expensive knives or knives with better steel, but in the end the cost and utility of this knife make it perfect for me.

    I also think Delicas are the best edc knife, certainly for the price. I gave this grey ffg to my son the day he moved away for college last month. Then I bought another just like it and ordered another deep carry clip.

    I almost chose the gray one! Love it. I also liked the pale blue, but didn't find one. I saw a more medium blue color, but chose brown instead.

    My only two Delicas. Zdp189 and super blue. I carry the ZDP, but haven't tried out the super blue yet.
