I have never owned a Delica, but many Enduras. I do own a Salt PE and a Tasman SE. I really like the H1 steel, and really like the Salt. I was EDCing the Salt for a few month a year ago and bought it because of a week boat trip I did from SF to Seattle with family. That week I used it for many BS chores and never felt the steel was holding me back and didn't need to sharpen it during that time. I can get as Surfringo said an edge almost like my Super Blues and it is very easy. I will say the Salt is a boring knife, in that it has the old Endura handle...but it is a working knife and tough.
