The Delica 4 Trainer is identical in weight and size to the 'live' model.
Martial artists and MBC practitioners all follow one cardinal rule - safe practice and training. Learning drills, actions and reactions with an unsharpened training blade allows you comfortable and realistic practice without the consequences of meeting a sharpened edge. The Delica 4 trainer has the same features as its live counterpart -- minus the sharpened cutting edge. Holes drilled out of the blade and an upswept tip, take away a small amount of weight and make the piece balanced in the hand. Stopping the knife from slipping and sliding, the handle is deeply textured in Spyderco's volcano grip pattern. By making the FRN handle red, it's designated and easily recognizable as a training model. The black metal clip is ambidextrous and positions the knife in the pocket tip-up.

Delica trainers also fit the bill as an unsharpened practice knife to safely teach non-knife people the fundamental movements in safely opening and closing a folder.
