Spyderco Delica 4 FFG Issue

I took apart my Delica today so that I could stonewash the blade. Once it was completely stripped, I saw that one of the bronze phosphor bushings was slightly bent. Don’t know if it was the previous owner or Spyderco who bent the bushing. I also don’t think that it was me since I’ve never taken it apart before today. Hopefully I don’t have to put too much money into obtaining something so small. Be careful.

Using RIT dye, I’ve managed to dye my formerly yellow Spyderco Pacific Salt dark green. I understand that it’s yellow for the sole purpose of being easily spotted while being obscured by other stuff, but I don’t use it in conditions such as those.

Got a Spyderco Delica 4 FFG about a month ago in a trade for $40. I’ve been wanting a Delica for the longest time, but I never wanted to pay $60 for one. I’ve always been pleased by VG-10 steel. It’s easy to sharpen and holds an edge well for the type of use I put it through. The knife came with some wear on the pocket clip, as you can see, but that’s about the only thing that kept it from being brand new. I really like this knife. I like that the blade to handle ratio is not 1:1 so that the handle is slightly longer than the blade. It fits my hand very well. The blade doesn’t deploy very quickly, but then again, I don’t need it to. A very svelte blade with its shallow belly and acute tip.
