THE FULL 18 Piece BLUE Anodized Custom Titanium
Pivot & Screw Parts Set designed to fit Spyderco Delica 4 (FRN) Knives.
(The Endura 4 is pictured but this 18pc set is for a Delica 4 knife)
Might Not Fit the Titanium or Stainless Scale Delica 4.
Please contact first for details.
These custom parts are not designed to fit Cloned or Fake Spyderco knives.
Do not buy these parts for any cloned or fake knives as they probably won't fit.
Might also not fit aftermarket scales if they are not the same dimensions as the factory scales.
The original factory standard torx screws are not titanium.
They might get rounded, threaded or simply get lost over time.
This Custom 18 piece parts set replaces all the standard fasteners
to a set of rust proof Custom Titanium versions anodized in BLUE.
This 18 Piece Titanium parts set is not designed to be exactly the same however
a re-worked and re-engineered replacement for the original Spyderco Delica 4 FRN knives.
I had to design another way of making these as the original steel parts were so small, thin,
fiddly and nearly impossible to make out of titanium. (NOTE: Screws on both sides of the knife now)
This is my version of a 18 Piece Full Titanium parts set to fit Spyderco Delica 4 FRN knives.

Other Custom colors can be requested such as:

Modifying / Customizing Notes:
My Custom Titanium Parts Set are a designed for fitting the original Spyderco Delica 4 FRN Scales.
My Custom Titanium Parts Set may or may not work on some aftermarket custom scales.
It all depends on how accurate and close the aftermarket scales dimensions are compared to the original FRN scales.
The pocket clip screws are only designed to fit the thickness of the factory sized Spyderco Delica Pocket clip.
Thicker sized pocket clips might not work. Or you may have sand back the aftermarket scales to fit thicker clips.
I can only supply ones that fit the original size. (Too long and it will hit the blade. Too short and it will fall out)
The factory pivot washer is also not needed with my Titanium Pivot Screw.
As I made the pivot screw head thicker and stronger instead.
TIMELINE OF DESIGN - NOTES, CHANGES AND UPDATES:
These Delica custom parts were extremely hard to make.
It has taken many years, over many production runs and many design changes to get it to this stage.
This is as good as I can get it for now, as it is very hard to hold and see when working on these parts
due to the fine details needed and extremely small size of all the parts.
As time goes on I will include improvements along the way.
This might not be reflected in the photos but will be updated here in the notes below:
2019 UPDATE: Finally I got the size balance right between being too short and too long on the "D" shaped internal shafts.
Some extra chamfering and polishing was needed on the edges to make it easier to be inserted into the scales when installing.
Pivot screws were meant to be a T8 Torx Drive size like the original. However it was made too accurate (with no tolerance built in)
and a bit too tight for most torx tools. (some T8 torx may work though) However just use the next size down being a T7 torx drive
and it will fit nicely. (It will be updated and fixed in the upcoming months). Just use a T7 Torx drive on the pivot screws and it will be ok. The Full Screw 18 Piece set is finally listed up for sale!!
2018 UPDATE: Listed up an 8pc Screw set. (One side of the knife)
But got many requests for the full set. (Both Sides of the knife).
Ok started designing the FULL SET. The parts are so miniature. I had to think of another way to do this,
as it was nearly impossible to make the pivot & scale shafts that small. It needed to be internally threaded to a weird metric
thread size, the shaft also needed to have a flat "D"section milled out on the edge. Many prototypes were done to get
the right balance between screw head thickness, shaft length and it all fitting together.
Again many parts were scrapped to get it right.
2017 UPDATE: Pivot screw now designed, tested and working. Also created the Pivot screw washers.
But found out it is not needed with a thicker pivot screw head. (just like most other knife pivots. No washer is needed)
Scrapped those parts and idea.
2016 UPDATE: Onto designing and prototyping the rest of the parts. Scale screws now designed and working.
2015 UPDATE: Pocket Clip Screw lengths fixed. Just the right length now.
2014 UPDATE: First Pocket Clip Screw Designed Tested and Tested to be a bit short.
Needs to be just right. Too long and it hits the blade. Too short and it won't catch on the threads.
2014 THE REQUEST: Customer asked. Can you make Delica parts? My reply: Sure, No problems.
I'll start off with the Pocket Clip Screws. Started off with the pocket clip screws.
The Pocket Clips screws use a weird rare Metric screw thread. Had to figure out what that was.
No thread gauges measure this size. Spyderco must of created it specifically for the Delica.
....... The beginning of the Delica Challenge / Headache.
What is included in this sale is only the 18 piece set of Titanium Parts to fit the original
Spyderco Delica 4 FRN knife. Consisting of 18 x BLUE Anodized parts in total.

Installation Warning Notes:
The Delica knife can be quite tricky to take apart and put together compared to other knives. It will not be a 1 minute job.
You will need the right tools and time to do this. (T8, T7 and T6 Torx Drives) Also some mechanical common sense also helps.
Please do not purchase this set if you are not confident in taking your Delica apart and putting it back together.
The Delica knife contains an internal spring loaded back locking mechanism. You will need to hold the lock and knife in such a way to
fit these custom titanium parts. There is a chance the blade can cut you when installing. Please tape up the blade with some painters
masking tape to make it safer when working on it. Please watch some Delica disassembly YOUTUBE videos beforehand to see how to it
is done. As the factory loctite thread glue can make the screws hard to get out too causing the Torx head to strip.
Also use some Good strong quality Torx German tools to (Such as Wiha or Wera Torx tools).
No knives are included in this sale.
