A knife can be an outdoorsman’s best friend. It can perform a multitude of functions, including self defense. If you feel more safe with a substantial knife on your person, you’ll find the new Kahr Delica 4 to be the perfect balance between utility and function. A knife with a blade of three inches or longer can be a violation of local ordinances, so this compact knife eliminates that problem. Here are the details.

South Dakota Deer 09 026Created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, the Kahr signature Delica 4 offers Kahr its own unique design by combining a full-length handle with a compact 2.5” blade. The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power.  The Kahr Delica 4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Hole found on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening. Other features include the Bi-Directional Textured handle scales injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced nylon and skeletonized stainless steel liners that reduce the overall weight of the knife to just 2.5 ounces.
