Is the Spyderco Delica 4 still a good knife in 2019?

My first (really good/expensive) knife was a black Spyderco Delica 4 with the black coated, partially serrated blade shape. A few years and about 25 folding knives later… I feel that the Delica 4 is more then just an old knife with FRN handle scales, VG-10 and a back lock. It’s a platform. And that’s what makes it unique within the Spyderco portfolio. Not many other knives anywhere in the market can offer a combination of::: flat ground, wharncliffe, saber, sheepsfoot, hawkbill, trainer and Emerson blade shapes. VG-10, H1, zdp-189, Damascus and sprint run blade steels. Plane, fully serrated and partially serrated edge geometry. FRN, stainless steel, titanium and G10 handle scales. Black, red, brown, foliage, orange, green, purple, blue, grey, British racing green and zome color ways. True. There are a few models in the Spyderco catalog that are better then the Delica. But nothing else (save for the smaller dragonfly and larger endura) offers such a wide variety of options under one singular platform. And that’s the beauty of the Spyderco Delica 4. Also doesn’t hurt to be one of the most iconic knives in the industry.

The delica is my go to around the house knife as well as my work knife for my hospital job. Cant carry a big knife in a hospital. Lol
