Bro, it looks awesome. You did a great job!!
I am in. I have Spyderco Enduras and a Delica. I would give this to my brother in law who goes hiking.
I had a light blue Delica....
I went camping at the beach...... before leaving the house, I put the Delica some where safe.... but not in the safe....
I did not want to get beach sand in in the nice smooth action.
That knife is still somewhere "safe". I'll be darned if I can remember where. That was three years ago.
I still ramble arround the house occasionally, looking for it.
I'm in !
The delica and spyderco has really impressed me.
Spyderco is about the only knife I reach for now. I tried two other knives for my carry couple weeks ago. Ended up going back and changing knives every 5 mins until I reached for a spyder.
I would gift this to my Son or my Dad who needs a Spyderco to start the day right.
I just can't part with the cruwear delica.
I thank you!
I'm in...and a nice gesture on your part.
Congrats on your 1 K !
* I couldn't resist to include my somehat 'over the top'' response to a post from last year:
Lol, Thanks again, I'd love the chance to own a (Whancliffe) Delica, & gift one of my others to a friend.
I'm in, very generous offer, if I'm picked please send to Lynn @sabre cat, he has been borrowing his wife's knife way to long.
I think it's awesome we have similar user handles! Haha
If I win Id like to get a purple one for my wife. I think she would like that.
My knife story is that I found an Old Hickory 10 inch butcher knife in my dads pantry. It was ancient, rusted and the handles were wrecked. I cleaned it up and I tried making wooden handles. Well, long story short, Im not going to be a custom knife maker lol My handles popped right off, and they were awful. I finally sent it to Ontario to fix, not expecting them to warranty the old abused thing, but it recently came back back to me as good as new! It will be used to carve turkey for me and my wife's Thanksgiving in a few days. We are a long way from home and probably cant go home to see family this year because of all the things going on lately, but using that old knife will be like having a little piece of home here with us. It wont be like having my aunts sweet potato casserole here though! lol
Change that "10 Years" to "Over 20 Years" and you got me in a nutshell there.
Over 20 years ago one of my buddies was looking for a Gerber Frisco Shiv, so I googled it and followed a link here to BFC.
I sat there that night for hours, marveling at the brands I never knew existed... the personalities and their voluminous knowledge of knives, steels, accessories...
The custom makers that I couldn't wait to work with to bring something from my imagination to reality. The comraderie that existed, the friends to come.
Now 20 years later I'm still here, still marveling. My interests are different than those days, but they've evolved because of the community here. I've had so many knives I can't count them, and given most away over the years. It's kind of a quest to get good knives into the hands of people who deserve them but have never learned about them. Nothing wrong with that, as it clears the path for my "finding that perfect knife" some day. I'm getting closer I'm sure.
I'm in. Can't wait to pass another quality knife like this on to someone who doesn't yet know such a fine piece exists.
The funny thing is that the purple Endura was going to my daughter, Rebekah. My wife saw it and got very interested. Rebekah ended up telling me to give it to my wife.
The thing is that I used it off and on before I was able to offer it to my daughter. That was the plan from the beginning. I use it for a little while until I could give it to my daughter in person.
I always thought the Delica and Endura were both hideous, butt ugly knives. But, that Endura has given me a whole new perspective on Spyderco knives.
Please send the Delica to @chuck4570. I find him to be an honorable individual. He is a good man and has always been very kind to me. If anyone deserve a new Spyderco, it’s him.
I've never had a Delica. I used to own an Endura in VG-10, but gave it away when I went white water rafting. At the end of the trip I overheard our guide griping that he lost his knife to a watery grave. A knife is indispensable in that line of work, so I took the Endura I had clipped to my life vest and handed it over. The guide was very grateful, his old knife was some cheap gas station job. Probably why he lost it -- trash knives come with trash pocket clips.
Not an entry. But thanks for your generosity.
I’m in. I guess that how this works? I’m fairly new to BF and this is the first giveaway I have seen. Very generous of you and cool because I have never owned ( or even handled) a Delica.
I can relate.
Back in 1974 I was scheduled to go to Germany. Three days before I left I cracked the crystal on my watch. I put it away someplace safe and I still don’t know where it is.

LoL guys - if I was a rich man, id buy you all a Delica - but this right here is the camaraderie that I have found across the years that makes bladeforums such a special place.
IDK if you guys know each other outside of the forum - but your interaction made me smile.
It looks like the end of this roundabout leads back to @chuck4570 so shoot me an PM and we'll get this set-up!
-- and I agree @sabre cat i always thought the delica/endura were butt ugly until I actually held/used one
BEST wishes all
Once again, thank you for your generosity ISKski.
Congrats to chuck4570!
The Delica could not go to a better person.
Unfortunately I know @chuck4570 only through the forums and a couple of phone calls.
I am pleased with your decision to send the Delica to Chuck.
Thank you for your kindness. Very generous of you to do this.
@ISKski i was not able to leave you a PM but I left you a post on your profile page. You can email me at chuck4570 at msn.com if you prefer.
