It seems like small knives get respect equivalent to their size, very little. Most people wouldn’t look at a subcompact lightweight car and think “high-performance vehicle”. That first estimation could change when it’s revealed that clown car is disproportionately packing 350 horsepower and a high-speed racing package.

Another example of stature not accurately representing ability is a Spyderco Dragonfly. Its cutting ability is unequal to its diminutive package and innocuous name. It kicks off with premium components like VG-10 blade steel and a G-10 foliage green handle. The VG-10 is tooled into a full flat-grind 2-1/4” long blade with a spine cusp jutting out the top where the thumb naturally settles itself for control over the cutting edge. The G-10 handle is ergonomically blueprinted so when held and used the knife feels and performs like a larger tool. Even the positioning of the Spyderco Round Opening Hole in relation to the pivot is tweaked for smooth opening and hitting all the correct pressure points in the hand. Blade and handle geometry create a series of grip angles with a purposeful flat shelf at the base where the pinkie finger rides as a leverage point. Wire clip carries right or left-handed tip-up or use it as a money clip.

Wonderful smaller nice
Paul P.
There is a reason Spyderco calls this one of their little big knives. Light weight, disappears in the pocket, ha day, but wonderful slicer with a full flat grind and a ton of useable blade. The G10 and gimping lock into your hand well making it super secure even for such a small knife. Whenever I’m going somewhere with knife length restrictions, the Dragonfly in G10 is along for the ride. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, very EDCable, stylish smaller knife.
The Knife I never knew i'd love!
Joseph K.
Never leave home without a solid tool. I never thought this little dragonfly would see as much pocket time as it does. Since I bought this almost a year ago, there have been few days I haven't carried it in my pocket. The wire clip is great, I prefer to carry this loose in my pocket. I use this on a daily basis from cleaning my nails to opening mail. The G10 scales are functional and they look good too. This knife is a little heavier than the FRN version but its not heavy by any means. To summarize, I never thought I would love this knife as much as I do. I don't leave home without it.
Excellent carry
Kyle A.
I have a few folders, and this has turned out to be my most carried. It is small, but fits the hand and cuts like a larger knife and can take care of most edc needs. This is the only knife I have bought a backup of for when the first wears out or becomes lost.
Dragonfly is Aces!
Gregory H.
This knife is fantastic! This is my third spyderco (pm2, delica) I wanted something small to have on me while running and it has far exceeded my expectations. Great size, great feel, awesome grippy scales, super sharp, and a really tight secure pocket clip. I carry this knife all the time now and hope that spyderco someday makes a bigger version of this flawless design.
Small wonder
Marc N.
This is only my second Spyderco. First is a PM2, which I really love and carry almost everywhere outside the house.

With the dragonfly, it's in my pocket inside the house too, and everywhere else, so it's already getting way more practical use than the PM2 does.

Blade comes literally razor sharp, and I'm so glad I stretched and got this version with the G-10, which I think just feels and looks great.

It really is an all around terrific and handy smaller knife.
Perfect Small Knife
Caleb K.
I love using my Dragonfly as a companion blade for a larger knife, or as a standalone carry when I know I'll be indoors all day. I removed the pocket clip from mine, and use it with a lanyard that has the added benefit of making my grip of the knife more secure. It's a classic Spyderco design for a reason, and it does its job well. The ergonomics are neutral and comfortable, and the choils make it nearly impossible to slip your finger onto the blade. The quality of this knife is excellent, and it functions perfectly in the role it's designed for.
Nearly ideal knife for my EDC
Mark A.
If I could design my own EDC knife this would be very close to my final design. The right blade shape, blade steel, over all size, handle shape, weight and balance. I tried the regular Dragonfly FRN and found it too light and blade heavy. My only concern with this model is the aggressive texture of the G-10 handle. I use my shirt pocket for EDC and I am worried that the handle will abrade the fabric of my shirt pockets. Time will tell.
Office EDC perfection.
Donald B.
This is the best office EDC knife out. Period. I have an FRN version, but the extra weight of the G10, for this knife, makes it more ideal. The FRN DF2 is almost too light (almost), but it has it's place for basketball shorts or the like. Throw the G10 version in your jeans or khakis and you are good to go. Truly the big little knife, I go to this knife over everything else I have owned to date.
My Favorite Spyderco
Marty M.
The more I carry this knife the more I like it. Just the right size for office use and I think the perfect EDC. I do not use the clip and it fits just right deep in the pocket. Easy to use either left or right handed.
I like the weight of the knife with the SS liners. I have a PM2 and a Delica 4 which I truly enjoy; but the Dragonfly works best for me to carry every day. This has got to be one of the best Spyderco knives made.
Beautiful and Useful
Sebastian Y.
When Carrying more expensive or bigger knives with this one, the dragonfly still often is the one getting used. It seems expensive when there are $50 alternatives for this knife but I think this one knocks those out of the park in looks, feel and Fit n Finish.
I didn't know I'd like this knife as much as I do but it stacks up against and often beats folders twice it's price and twice it's size.
pocket friendly knife
Darrell B.
Beautiful little knife that goes unnoticed in your pocket until you need it. The G10 and steel liners give a bit more weight but feels sturdier, well worth the minimal weight gain. One of the best small folders out there, especially if your'e burned out on tactical looking folders like I am. Great service from bladehq as always.
