C.Q.I.-Constant Quality Improvement is a process Spyderco uses to evaluate and refine longstanding established knife models. Sometime C.Q.I. changes are large and noticeable, sometimes they’re smaller refinements. Recently we applied C.Q.I. to the classic Dragonfly creating a new Dragonfly2. The Dragonfly2 upgrades some notable features over the classic while keeping the important basics. Features carrying-over to the new version are the tried and tested mid-sized blade and ergonomic handle along with a front-finger choil and spine cusp. Also staying is the blade-to-handle geometry and leveraging points which make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger large knife when in the hand. New refinements include: the addition of a left/right tip-up wire clip, patented Bi-Directional Texturing™ on the handle, choil and spine jimping and screw together handle construction. The blade is still premium VG-10, now in a high-performance flat-grind with a PlainEdge or SpyderEdge™. The position of the enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole in relation to the pivot leads to smooth opening and the FRN (fiberglass reinforce nylon) handle fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles and leveraging spots.
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.
