Product Description

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 a high-performance flat-grind ZDP-189. 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.

Customer Reviews

This knife is great quality and perfect for a small EDC knife.
Daniel Scott King
The size of this knife is perfect for EDC use because it is small and compact, but sufficient for most everyday uses.

It is very light and feels great in the hand for such a small knife!

This knife has become my favorite EDC knife because of the blade steel and the size. First the steel: IMHO, ZDP-189 is the best non-laminated steel for pocket knife. Mine came from the factory extremely sharp and has held that edge without honing or "touch-up" through a great number of cardboard boxes. When I first began using it I worried about the steel being brittle, but that turns out to be a non-factor. I still don't use it (or ANY knife) as a pry bar, but I'm not worried about hitting box staples anymore either. The size is perfect for a "watch" or 5th pocket on jeans. My Delica 4 is too big for that pocket, while the Ladybug has been relegated to the keychain. Incidentally, all 3 of those knives are ZDP-189, but I have other knives in S30V, VG10, etc. The ZDP-189 wins hands down for edge retention.

The Dragonfly 2 is my new favorite small knife. Spyderco's great design lets it be as small and light as possible while maintaining much of the usability of a larger knife. The choils greatly improve grip and knife control, making it good for detailed, precise cuts, although the bottom choil does significantly shorten the cutting edge. For example, the Ladybug, a much smaller knife without a bottom choil, has an edge that's almost as long as the DF2's. In any case, the DF2's blade is long enough for most common cutting tasks. The small form factor and conservative color make it non-threatening to others.

The ZDP-189 has better edge holding ability compared to VG10, though it may require a little more time to sharpen. I would have been just as happy with the less expensive VG-10 version. The G10 version is almost double the weight. The FRN's bi-directional pattern is a lot grippier than G10. Both the ZDP and G10 versions are quite pricey for such a small knife and I definitely wouldn't call them 'high value'. The VG10 version is a better value (though still a bit overpriced, IMO). To me, the price was fair, since I'll be using this knife for many years to come.

I owned several small knifes, including the Spyderco Ladybug, Cricket and Ambitious, the Kershaw Chive and Scallion, Boker Keycom, Swiss Army Knife and a Sebenza-like import. After using the DF2, the others paled in comparison (heavier, bad ergonomics, poor design and quality, etc.). I was carrying a Delica 4, but have now switched to the DF2, which has been able to handle everything I used the Delica for. Highly recommended.

I also own a Spyderco Endura 4 with Emerson Wave, a black Delica 4 SpiderEdge and yellow Tasman Salt. I carry the Endura every day in my right pocket. Since my new ZDP-189 Dragonfly 2 (British Racing Green FRN) arrived about a week ago, I've been carrying it clipped in my left pocket.

Initial impression is that this is a very nicely made little knife. Great feel in my hand and very, very sharp. Nothing more to say about it at this time except that I'm glad I spent $60 on this little gem.

20 September 2012 Update: After about ten months of occasional use, this thing is still razor sharp. I'm very happy with this purchase.

I am a knife fannatic, having near 200 in my collection. I have a lot of experience using knives, having grown up in the boy scouts, being a US Marine Corps infantryman, and doing outdoor activities all of my life such as hunting and camping for weeks on end in remote locations. In my opinion this is the perfect EDC (Every Day Carry) pocket knife.

It is of extremely high quality with no play or wiggle of the blade. It has the tip-up carry orientation that I like, and fits perfectly in a watch pocket on a standard pair of jeans. It comes razor sharp from the factory and will keep it's very sharp edge longer than most other knives which don't have steel this hard.

After receiving it I carried it for a few days and put it through some rough use. I cut paper and cardboard, which it went through flawlessly. I also used it as a chisel to remove glue from a piece of steel and it functioned like a brand new razor blade. I used it enough to slightly dull it from how it originally came (even though it would still shave arm hair). Then I put it on the Spyderco Sharpmaker's fine and then ultra fine stones. Wow... I don't think it could now possibly be any sharper. It is sharper than it came from the factory; that is for sure. Initially it would pop hairs off, but now after having sharpened it on the ultra fine stone it removes them by the hundreds with no pressure; just like a brand new safety razor would do. I believe it can attain a sharper edge than most knives due to it's very thin blade, which is appropriately the very hard Japanese ZDP-189 steel. I feel that I could break it if pretty easily I used it for prying, but I won't attempt that.

In addition to the exceptional sharpness and high quality, what makes it the perfect pocket knife is its convenient size.

I wasn't too sure about this specific knife, I have always preferred larger knives but I was extremely please with the amount of use I put this little knife through and it really performs, cutting cardboard, opening letters, and most importantly not scaring my coworkers, it's extremely well made and will I'm highly satisfied with it. Delivery was fast and the product arrived as advertised. Highly recommend it.
