    Thumbs up Re: gift for my gf, an pink delica?

    That or a pink Native if you need pink

    Have both (saving one for my daughter and one for the wife) and both are very nice.

    The Sage in Carbon fiber is also very nice if she is right handed and color isn't an issue. Slightly more pricey, but very close to perfection. (And I do have more expensive knives... )

    I just picked up a pink cricket for my wife. She loves it. It compliments the pink ladybug I got her many moons ago.

    Sounds like a great gift

    Another thing you may want to throw in is a purple Fenix E01 - they are $15 shipped from 4sevens. I picked one up for my wife over the summer and she really enjoys it.

    Is pink tactical? I keep asking Spyderco to make a pink 'Military' but to no avail.

    Seriously, sounds like a cool gift. I wish my wife liked knives.

    Buying a knife for a woman is highly dangerous, as thats not the kind of thing that most women want. And Powernoodle knows what women want.

    However, as long as you are sure that she is a knife chick, then go for it.

    My wife "adopts" the lights and knives she likes and suddenly she starts referring to them as hers

    The problem is that she is a bit careless with them and they are sometimes misplaced for quite a while.

    Currently she has 2 Delicas, an Ocelot, 2 bushcraft knives, 2-3 multitools, an unknown quantity of AA lights , but I got my U2 back because she thought it was a bit large

    She is a leftie though so liner, frame and compression locked knives are pretty safe

    Good choice with the Delica!

    I loled.

    Take her out and offer to take her shopping.

    Buy her a knife next week and say I just felt like it. Seriously, don't buy a girl a knife for a special occasion.

    If what you say is true my friend, I only have two things to point out.

    1) You should buy her a new knife and you're lucky. I'm gifted because my girlfriend likes flashlights more than I do I think lol

    2) If she is really a fanatic, would she consider a pink one an insult or something to add to the collection.

    I say this because whilst my girlfriend is no flashaholic, if I bought her a something because it was cute but wasn't top of the line she would think it was a joke. Just a thought.

    I gave my ex-wife a pink Delica back when we were married ....

    I wish I could get it back! She threw a bunch of my stuff out, but she sure kept that Delica.

    Strider even has a pink model. Of all the pink knives I have seen, the best shade of pink is on the Spydrco models.
