    I much prefer the Delica to the mini Grip. I have medium size hands and the mini was too small for me.

    I say mini grip. The axis lock is light years better than the backnlock of the delica. The mini grip may feel a bit smaller in the hand, but the blade feels much better balanced and sturdy.

    Definitely the Delica, especially with the new mini grips being more expensive.

    I have both. I like both. For daily carry I prefer the Mini Grip. For you, though, I chose the Delica.

    Delica grip and blade are much better. Mini Grip lock and action are much more convenient and fun.

    I choose delica full flat grind. Slices and glides through material.

    I voted for delica for you. Mini grip in 20cv for me, however.

    I voted for Delica. The handle is more comfortable for me. 4 way pocket clip is nice too.

    You really can't go wrong with either choice. I have 2 mini grips, they don't get much pocket time.

    Both rotating. They are both too great to ignore.
    I didn't vote; how can I pick just one given such a choice ? !

    Delitillian is better than Gripica, it’s really just a matter of personal preference though. Very hard to decide between these two excellent knives based on anything else.

    Both are superb EDC choices. I'd choose either of those over the PM2, myself.

    Ritter grip with micarta scales is my daily office go to. I much prefer the axis lock to the lockback.

    I've tried several including Mini Grip but keep coming back to the Delica, especially my Delica in ZDP-189.

    Another strike against the Mini Grip - that combo blade! IMO, combo blades are an abomination. It's either full PE or SE for me.

    I agree. Delica's ergo is definitely better than mini grip, for me. I did not measure but behind the edge, mini grip might be even thinner than Delica.
