Product Description

Product Description

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key. Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable. Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials. As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.

The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is an updated and refined version of the classic Dragonfly--designed to maintain the tried and true features of the original, while upgrading it for greater usability. Carry-over features from the original include the tried and tested mid-sized blade, ergonomic handle shape, and a front-finger choil and spine cusp. The design also maintains the blade-to-handle geometry and leveraging points of the original which combine to make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger large knife when in the hand.

New upgrades and refinements include the addition of a left/right tip-up wire clip for easy and accessible carrying. The knife boasts patented Bi-Directional Texturing on the FRN handle as well as choil and spine jimping for positive hold. The knife maintains its sturdy yet lightweight build with screw together handle construction and a skeletonized full-liner that shaves off unnecessary weight while maintaining rigidity and interior integrity.

Built for a natural and effortless fit in the hand, the Dragonfly 2 has an enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole positioned in relation to the pivot for to smooth opening. The FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles and leveraging spots. Like all Spyderco knives, the Dragonfly 2 carries a limited lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship.

I recently bought an Ambitious and like it well enough. After carrying it for awhile, I felt like it was a bit much for an EDC blade. It was a bit too bulky, too big a blade, too heavy...Good knife for the money, but I wanted something that would simply disappear in my pocket. So I started looking into the smaller offerings that Spyderco had. The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 stuck out and really fits that bill well. It weighs only 1.2oz, has a small-medium size blade, and good god...the pocket carry is amazing. It's small, lightweight and packs an awesome punch. Just what I was looking for.

The ergonomics are really where the knife shines bright, though. It just sits so wonderfully in the hand and makes the knife feel like an extension of your hand. THIS is what a good knife should feel like! (The Ambitious, on the other hand always felt to me like a slab of plastic with a blade attached in comparison to this) The index and middle finger wrap so delicately around the blade and handle, you can tell they really thought out how a hand should grip this knife.
I love the gimping on the choil and the thumb ramp. Makes the knife really feel good and solid in the hand. Lockup of the blade is solid. I don't feel like it will be an issue at all.
The clip doesn't dig into your palm on the rear, either, something I was worried about. The FRN really feels quite good despite looking just the teeniest bit cheap. Neither too grippy nor too smooth.
My only gripe is that I want a brown color much like the Delica series!!

Slipping it into your pocket, you can tell it just becomes nothing. It rides fine, a tad high, but then again I prefer a knife to absolutely disappear. What I'm really talking about here is pocket "real estate".

I absolutely love this knife! This is my 6th Spyderco, so I am confident in saying that it's a great knife. I also own a Tenacious, VG10 Delica 4 (FRN), VG10 Endura 4 (FRN), H1 Pacific Salt, and a H1 Ladybug. I must say that I love Spyderco's VG10 steel. All of my nicer Spyderco's are manufactured in Seki City, so I can't compare to the steels on some of their higher-end models, but the VG10 steel is a huge step up from the 8Cr13MoV which comes on their Chinese knives. I like the FRN handles, but some may prefer G10 (such as on the Tenacious) or Micarta. The FRN is so lightweight that I forget that I have it on me most of the time.

As for the blade...well, it's perfect. The full flat grind (FFG) and VG10 steel make it a slicing machine! These are the sharpest knives that I have ever owned. The size of the blade is also perfect for me. My first Spyderco was an Endura which is great outdoors, but a bit too big in public and at work. After my Endura I chose a Delica, which has served me well and was my go-to EDC knife until I got the Dragonfly. The Dragonfly is the perfect size for me - small enough to not get funny looks in public, but large enough to do what any full-size pocket knife should do. The Ladybug was a bit too small (IMO) for anything besides a backup/keychain knife, but the Dragonfly is perfect for my EDC needs. If you're on the fence about this one just go ahead an buy it! You won't be disappointed.

edit: I have included an image of my Spyderco knives for size reference.

This is a fine knife. I am not a knife-aholic with a big collection. I just like well-made, well-designed, useful tools. This knife is exactly that. It is small enough to carry all the time. It never gets in the way and you never notice it until you need it. But the blade is sharp and durable. It came shaving sharp, has been used a good bit, and is still shaving sharp. Since it is small, you can't flick it open in a blur like an assisted carry knife, but it truly is a one hand opening knife. In a dark cramped crawl space with one hand full over your head, you can easily pull this knife out and open it with one hand and put it to use. It is comfortable to hold and use, though not quite as comfortable as a full size knife would be. But I don't want a full size knife filling up my pocket. I like the jimping on back of the choil. It helps you know exactly where your finger or thumb is. The clip is good, the handle light, and the lock-up solid.

Only bad thing is, it is a little hard to close one-handed. It can be done if you are just standing around, but not so easy to do and avoid a finger when you are in the middle of something or in an awkward position, due to its small size. Just not enough to hold onto.

Color: gray
Just got my knife today and I'm very happy with it. I removed the clip (Philips screws, thank you spyderco) for in the pocket carry. I read and watched many reviews before buying and some people complained about the price given it's size. My thought is that while it's true there is less material here than the big brother knives; it still had to be machined, tempered, assembled, and sharpened by skilled workers. I think the amount of material is only a small part of the cost to produce. The fit and finish are truly amazing. Cutting performance doubly so. I can't speak of durability or edge retention since I've only been using it for a couple hours.

Also don't worry about blade length, it's fine, and no one's going to call the cops when they see it. Of course, if you want to build a shelter and or kill things get a Kabar BK-14 or a SOG Seal Team Elite. Those are great knives I use my SOG all the time, but there are many tasks and places where carrying and drawing your huge death saber isn't going to work out. Think clothing tags, banks, gym shorts, suits, children's birthday parties, etc. This knife is for all the times when you shouldn't look like Rambo.
