Has anyone picked up a 98 Delica recently? I picked one up at a show today and I' ve noticed some subtle but effective differences on this particular one. The black pocket clips matte finish is a good improvement from the others I' ve seen. Glare free and a bit more texture for the fingers to hold on to, especially on the draw. Hopefully, it is more durable as well. The other big difference is the thumbhole left *unradiused*! Much better grip surface for the thumb, even when wet or with gloves on! Is this in fact an intentional change or did I pick one that slipped thru QC? All of the thumbholes should be left unradiused IMO.
Way to go Sal!

Nakano - A totally unradiused hole cuts little ring shaped cuts in the thumb as it is too sharp. finding the "right" amount of radius has been a long development process. We agree with the desired function, achievement is sometimes more difficult that it would seem. Thanx for noticin'.
