We’ve been itching to share this exciting news with you for a little over a month now. Spyderco sent us one of these babies a while back, but we had our hands tied and couldn’t release the news (or photos!) until today. Without further ado, here’s what the new Delica 5’s are going to be looking like…
Gotta say, in the short time I’ve had this knife I haven’t quite been able to put it down. Definitely an excellent EDC, though of course I also loved the Delica 4, so I’m a little biased. The particular Delica 5 Spyderco sent me will be released as a sprint run: super blue (plain blade) with grey FRN handles.
Differences between the Delica 4 and the Delica 5:
- Leaner blade profile
- More aggressive slicer (a result of the super-lean blade)
- Thumb stud (obviously)
- New mold for the FRN scales – can’t notice any visual differences (besides the model number of course), but definitely feels a touch lighter
Not quite sure why Spyderco went with a thumb stud this time, but I have to admit it’s looking good!
Anyway, that’s about all! We’ll be putting out a review of the Delica 5 sometime this month. Keep an eye out if you’re interested.
Bull shit. Even their fixed blades and the Valotton (that does have a thumb stud), have the Spyderco trade mark round hole.

Bullshit indeed. We’ve called April Fools on this one. You can check out the before/after photoshopping here if you’re curious.
