I'm still waiting... for Spyderco to develop a Delica 5.
Put in a real forward finger choil and upgrade the base steel.
Nothing they make beats the Delica for pocket-ability and size, as far as I'm concerned.

You don't have to wait.. You can have the Best Delica scales, Ever!
Everything you want. Boomer52 Lil Para Delica scales. (Grind mod)..
Cheap, fantastic and you can put them on Any Delica steel you want.

Now.. a Delica sized, with a choil and compression lock.. Would be saaweeet..

Basically a narrower, thinner, Para 3.. Which is what the Boomer52 scale's give ya, on the Delica. Minus the compression lock.

Hi JohnDF,

We're probably a ways off for a Delica 5. Most Delica customers aren't into the finger choils. A Compression lock on a Delica might not be well received because the model has developed a large audience of the past 30 years, and the back-lock and muscle memory carry's a lot of history.

Thanks for answering Sal. :)
I guess a Sprint with upgraded steel will be the closest I can come for a while then.
I agree about the back lock, it is part of why I'm so fond of the model. That and the shape and thinness. :cool::thumbsup:
