***These knives have been modified by the KnivesPlus Team. We take great care in our modifying process to guarantee that they function as intended. Some of our modifications include acid washing, anodizing, regrinding, and customizing backspacers. All blades have been re-sharpened and are guaranteed to shave.
***COLOR CAN VARY FROM KNIFE TO KNIFE - SOME DARKER OR LIGHTER THAN SHOWN IN PICTURE
***Please note that occasionally, modifications can void the manufacturer warranty.
***The price increase is due to a totally new knife with handles that cannot be bought for this knife. We have taken handles from the Delica 4 knife to build these. These are made in a very limited fashion.

From the Spyderco website: Inspired by a request from one of our customers who uses a Delica 4 Lightweight every day in his job, this variation features a flat-ground Wharncliffe-style blade crafted from VG-10 stainless steel. The perfectly straight cutting edge of this blade profile provides the maximum transfer of cutting pressure - all the way to the tip - and provides an acute point that excels at detailed work. All other features of this workhorse design are consistent with the standard Delica 4 Lightweight model.
