Delica4, Carbon Fiber / HAP40 Laminate
This limited edition of the Delica 4 combines the cutting performance of a full-flat-ground blade profile with the extreme edge-holding qualities of HAP40 powdered metallurgy tool steel. The core of the three-layer blade is made from HAP40, a state-of-the-art high-speed tool steel produced by the powder metallurgy process. Boasting generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and cobalt, HAP40 possesses exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance—key qualities of a superior blade steel. This high-performance core is flanked by layers of SUS410, a martensitic stainless steel that gives the blade increased strength and improved corrosion resistance.
The other remarkable feature of this Delica 4 Limited is its handle, which is constructed with full skeletonized stainless steel liners and carbon fiber scales. The smooth finish of the scales reveals the stunning pattern of the solid carbon fiber and is complemented by the expertly blended finish of the handle’s perimeter. All other features of this knife are consistent with the best-selling standard version of the Delica 4, including a sturdy back lock mechanism and a polished four-position pocket clip.
