Is that good or bad?

Not bad, it’s my daily carry now. I just have two identical knives. Seems though that a lot more received waves this time around. Maybe I’ll give the second on out to a friend
Got the Emerson Wave gray/blue plus a a Ladybug! I've never gotten an upgrade or bonus with a Blue Box, so this makes up for all the others!
I just got mine emerson wave grey/blue + a pouch. Nice.

Some people like them and some people hate them. I have the Endura 4 wave and it’s my go-to edc.

So far I am really enjoying the auto deployment. And I'm in Los Angeles, so it's blade length is perfect to be legal conceal carry and hopefully not scare the soft people of this city haha.
I just opened mine. Brown Frn with the bonus pouch. I wanted the "turd" colored one.
Hey guys, I received the standard black handled Delica today. If anyone received the Delica wave model and isn’t happy with it, I’d be happy to trade. Just let me know.
Has anyone ever received a "Fake" from Massdrop?
Inspecting what I had gotten, the knife and box. The box differs from original Spyderco boxes - from printing, coloring, to the shape of the Spyderco image, even the text is somewhat different. My Delica 4 apparently skipped out on QC too, the Pivot screw is loose as it could possibly be resulting in massive side to side and even up and down play, rolls on the blade/serrated portion, not as clean looking as my other Delica I had gotten from a backed retailer.

I hope not, I would check the comparison videos on youtube comparing fake vs real delica's and see if yours might be fake. Please let us know how it goes. I'm curious too

No QC issues on mine. Box and packing materials look legit. I went through these concerns with a Dragonfly H1 Salt I bought on Amazon, but it turned out to be fine as well. Check the videos online as mentioned by Benjii above.
Got the standard black handle Delica and a pouch. Pouch is nicer than expected, but still not sure on its purpose. Was hoping for the ZDP-189, may just have to track one down anyway :-). Happy with this purchase though.
Delivered - Black and Black with a Combo Edge.. Like most, I wasn't very thrilled when I had seen it, but regardless, It's a Spyderco Delica 4 ..
Just got mine. Basic black with plain edge. Can't say I'm thrilled, but whatever, it's a great knife.
Got it today, no upgrades just a black plain edge. When I opened it I thought it was an endura, I've had a delica for many years and this is noticeably larger than my older one.
I'm hopeful. My past experiences with these blue boxes, the early shipments had some goodies. I sat and watched while everyone posted they received shipment notification and didn't get mine til a few days later. I have not received an upgrade or bonus yet. My fingers are crossed on this one!
Looks like orders are shipping early on this one, got my shipping notice today. Time to be patient a bit longer, but cool that its coming early.
I skipped this drop, but if they run it again without the combo blade , and perhaps some better odds of an upgrade, I will most likely go in.
Looks like the final count was 162 people joined the drop. A little disappointing, but makes sense since 900+ people already did this before. I wanted a delica anyway, but also want a chapparell. Too bad not enough people joined the drop.
I have no problem with the spider edge blade it is my favorite and most durable edge
I would love to get the Damascus one, but would be extreamly happy to get the zdp189 model. I have 3 different knives with that blade.
Fair price considering possibility of upgrade and/or bonus. Wouldn’t mind ZDP or a sharpener but the rest feels like clearance rack items to me. I wouldn’t buy most of these items even on deep discount.

Given that they haven't even reached the 150 sold goal with less than a day to go, I don't think you're the only one who glanced over the upgrade list and decided to go to Knifecenter or their local brick and mortar instead.
This makes me nostalgic for the Dragonfly drop, and that wasn't exactly great either...
NewHass
Now we're 11 hours away and the 150 goal is still locked.
Assuming 100 units were sold, 60 of them will be regular plain Jane Delica blades, 20 are Emerson Wave opening VG10 ones, 15 more are Combi Edge (also VG10), with but 4 of them being a real upgrade (ZDP189).
And a single VG10 damascus one. Along with 20 cases.
Those aren't great odds for an upgrade. At least the Dragonfly drop got you a 37% chance of a steel upgrade with ZDP189 or H1.
Really good deal for us Aussies.
SD4 normally retails for $190 AUD here. So this is a great bargain
How will we know how many people joined the drop so we can see what kind of secondary items we might get?
Benjji
Anyone know what this round started at on the total count? I saw it at 810 when i committed, so at least 93 so far?? This was on first day, but late in the day, so it probably started at a lower number...
Combo edge was a misfire
The loot box of massdrop
Ok, just to make sure i'm understanding. Even though they say the Spyderco Delica Emerson Wave ($124.95 retail value) Is an upgraded knife the general consensus it that it is a downgrade??

I have the Endura Emerson wave model and absolutely love it.
I wonder if this box will be plagued by the same production problems that affected the limited edition SGPS delica...
azraelsblade
It might have issues but not like the super gold delica. In that drop spyderco is making the knives in this drop they have already been made.
The risk of getting a downgrade (serrated, Emerson Wave) instead of ZDP189 or a wharnecliff is keeping me out of this blue box.
That and getting a regular Dragonfly last time, not even a case, for what I could have bought at the store without waiting a month plus three weeks for shipping and Customs clearance.
im in but if i get a serrated im gonna be pretty butthurt
i have to agree with the comments about the combo blade being a turn-off. MD could easily fix the problem and perhaps draw in a lot of fence-sitters without reneging on any terms of this offer. All they need to do is email an offer to anyone who is selected to receive the combo knife the choice of a "down-grade" to the Emerson Wave or the standard random color Delica. It would be no skin off MD's nose, since these options are priced lower. That way MD can keep the current drop and just add this as an option in the comments. Does anyone else second this?
I've joined 4 spyderco MD drops this year for 5 knives (waiting for 2 supergold Delicas and 1 supergold Endura), two of which were blueboxes that didn't result in any upgrades (got the non-useful pouch in one of them). We take our chances, but with the combo blade a relatively high potential I will likely pass on this.
Combo edge is a dealbreaker for me. I have one that replaced a plain edge Delica which was my favorite edc of all time. The combo edge leaves such a small part of plain edge it is barely usable. I want to replace the combo Delica I have but will probably wait for a sprint run because the combo edge exists in this drop.
Amen to CoolBreeze. Standing a chance to "win" a combo blade would p*ss me off to no end. A fate worse than death. No, a fate worse than herpes. I have to pass on this.

I had to read your post a few times, then I had to laugh! Thank you!

Lol it was meant to be confusing 😝
The upgrade possibility makes this Blue Box thing an interesting concept; however, I am hesitant for a couple reasons.
a) I have 60 % chance of getting only an FRN Delica for $74. I can buy an FRN Delica any time for that price (or even a bit less), plus I get to choose the color I want. It's not super compelling like some of the other drops that offer reduced prices.
b) One of the "upgrades" is actually huge downgrade IMO. The black/combo edge Delica is awful. I hate the black coating, the shorter hollow grind, and the serrations. I would be upset if I payed $74 and got the black/combo edge version. And, of course, the black/combo edge version is one of the more likely "upgrades".
Anyone else feeling intrigued but let down at the same time?

I hear you on that... legit drop if they remove the combo edge. It's like a whammy. Though I also don't like the earth brown handled one either.

I completely agree about the black combo delica, I just want to point out that the idea behind these blue boxes isn't to get you a better deal on the base, but to give you the opportunity to get an upgraded knife and maybe few more perks, the only bad thing in the concept imo is that u not always want to buy that exact knife in that exact moment, it just strikes you and u suddenly have to decide if you want to try your luck.
Probably the best pocket knife out there. I own, 4 or 5. If this had the Emerson wave feature, I'd be all over this.

It looks random from the drop description. I'l check it out and see if I join and can choose the Emerson version.
MarkAndrew
oh.. sorry thought you meant it'd be good to have a waved Delica in general. Yeah, you have to "win the wave" on this drop.
No Delica here is a match for my V-Toku2/SUS410. Ha ha ha. Well, except may be for the Ti/Dam.

The etch seems to eat the darkness from the factory logo and writing etch, but the lamination line.....
