SpyderCo introduced the Delica 19 years ago. Since then, this durable, affordable and lightweight knife has become a top choice for climbers. The serrated edge is unmatched in its ability to cut rope, webbing and tat. The smooth, one-handed action is essential for on-the-fly operation and the bi-directional, textured handle and slip-resistant jimping along the spine of the knife improve grip—important when you’re a couple of pitches up trying to clean the rotten perlon out of that fixed anchor.
