Product Description

Amazon.com

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.

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 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.

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".

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.

This is a great little knife from Spyderco. Great steel, ultra-lightweight, small enough to carry discretely. A little wide in the pocket like all spydercos, but what are you going to do, that's the nature of the beast. I have both the plain and spyderedge versions.

It's interesting to me that the larger Spydercos (and other brands) seem to get the most numerous and enthusiastic reviews. I can't deny they have a cool, bad-ass factor that this little knife can't touch. But I can't help wondering how much those larger knives actually get used...or do they mostly sit on top of a bureau somewhere gathering dust? I have a few of those myself. As mentioned in my review of the Kiwi 3, I live and work in an urban environment where I can't practically---and don't want to---carry around an enormous "pocket knife" that's gonna make me look like I overdosed on Viagra. How does that TV ad go again? Oh, yeah, "If an erection lasts more than four hours, please seek immediate medical attention!" No, thank you, not for me.

But this little baby, like the Kiwi, you can actually carry and use in public without scaring the bejeezus out of everyone around you. Just sayin'.

I own several knives, including Spydercos and Kershaws and Leathermen. This is a superb little knife. Although it does not have the G10 handle, or a metal handle, the plastic handle is well made and sturdy, and is extremely lightweight (moreso than the other materials for a handle). For a pocketknife, the blade is generous, stout, and sharp as a razor right out of the box. The thumb hole works well to flip it open, but because the knife does not have the heft of, say, the paramilitary, you will not be able to easily flick it open like lightening, if that's your bag. It does accept the zip tie on the thumb hole for a quick pocket open, if that's your penchant, baby.

It's a wide and deep blade for it's small size, so you can use it for everything from coring an apple to filleting a fish to skewering a moose. It keeps a sharpness that is good for a pocketknife (but not as hard as Paramilitary, but then again, easier to sharpen, too). The pocket clip is the metal "paperclip" style, which is grippy but inconspicuous. This baby is so lightweight at only 1.2 ounces (the Kershaw ZT350 is 5.7 ounces, and the Spyderco Paramilitary II is 4.7 ounces--anvils compared to the Dragonfly!), you can't even feel it in your pocket. For an EDC in the pocket, there is none better.

I think the price is steep for it's size, the handle material, and the blade stock. For the price, the manufacturer should have at least put on a SV30 blade (it's a small blade, how much could the difference be between this and the upgraded blade material?). You can price shop and see that other Spydercos like the Tenacious, Manix, etc. are, proportionally,not that ridiculously more pricey than the Dfly. So, you must decide over a more generous blade for a few more bucks, or a stealthy pocket rocket like the Dfly that you will never mind carrying because of it's low profile, great clip, and featherweight.

Cheers!
