The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is a second-generation knife that has undergone some stellar improvements thanks to the C.Q.I.-Constant Quality Improvement process employed by Spyderco. The Dragonfly2 maintains the same blade and handle geometry with leveraging points that make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger knife.

The Dragonfly 2 features a premium VG-10 blade with a full flat grind and now has jimping at the choil and the spine for better control and feel. The handle on the second generation Dragonfly uses Spyderco's patented Bi-Directional Texturing on the fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) and has a reversible tip-up wire clip for superb carry characteristics. The Back Lock steel frame ensures a tight lock with solid performance.

Small hands? Perfect!
Adam D.
Very ergonomic and compact knife, super easy to open with or without gloves (thin or thick), also the jimping is awesome.
Comes sharp as a razor, be careful when handling it!

Also, this has been my edc for 2+ years now and I use it alot.
Big hands? No problem.
Zach C.
This is a small knife. However, thanks to Spyderco's commitment to ergonomics you're probably not going to notice so much in hand. I've carried the SOG Twitch II before and it's similar size unfortunately doesn't mean a similar experience. The forward choil and thumb ramp give this knife a grip I'd almost compare to a Delica 4. Not quite the same, but for such a small knife it's impressive. It's also extremely light, thanks in part to the lack of liners, but you won't miss them. Solid handle, extremely solid lockup and a great blade shape. Why haven't you bought one yet?
Little Knife, Big cuts
Kyle K.
I recently picked up this little guy, it was a pleasant surprise. For a knife this small I didn't think much so this exceeded my expectations. VG-10 is a fairly good steel, holds an edge well, sharpens well. Was a little stiff out the box but it just needed to be broken in as all knives do. What a great little slicer this is. Great finger choil. This is basically the delica's little brother. -1 star for the pocket clip that I'm not too big of a fan of
Ultra lightweight EDC
Gordon I.
I wanted a discreet carry knife that could basically disappear on your person but still function in EDC roles. The dragonfly is almost perfect in that roll. Deep carry wire clip allows it to ride low in pockets. Its weight or lack there of ensures that it doesnít telegraph or print while wearing formal attire. My only criticism would be the edge design. I would like to see a bit more belly to the cutting edge. I think that would allow it to punch above its weight class in more cutting tasks. The I ncrease in belly would also improve its tip strength/durability. But overall great size and great weight!
Perfect EDC
Jeff R.
I've tried knives of all different sizes for an EDC and always come back to the dragonfly 2. I hate bulky items in my pockets so I love that this guy fits right into the change/watch pocket of my jeans. VG10 is perfect steel for my use. Only thing I would change would be a black pocket clip.
Best small work knife!
Jacob H.
Iíve used my dragonfly 2 with g-10 scales for a couple of months now. I work at a diner and most of my co-workers are weird about big knives, so when I got this it was perfect. The VG-10 takes a laser sharp edge and will keep cutting for days and days. Absolutely love this knife.
Dress Pants Appropriate
Joseph B.
Prior to my bugout, the dragonfly was my de-facto EDC as I work in an office and other knives were just too heavy to carry. I loved the lightweight carry and the design. If, however, I could ask for an update it would be to the lock. I am not a fan of back locks as they really require two handed closing and probably worse is that I could never de-activate the lock without putting some part of my hand in the blades path. Which is why when the bugout came out, it became my new edc. Would love for an update to the dragonfly to change that though!
Pocket Surgeon
Jess W.
I bought this a an EDC to pair with a tactical blade. I use this for all my daily cutting chores. It disappears in my back pocket until I need it. The Dragonfly cuts far beyond its size. The vg10 is easy to touch up with a few passes on the stone. The blade is a precision instrument that is easy to handle. The size will not scare reasonable people, I often carry it as my Gentleman's knife. Highly recommended
Flys right into my pocket!
Timothy M.
I got this knife in a BHQ bundle with a Para 2, and almost bought another one in H1 right after getting it.
I often will carry two knives, one larger hard use knife and one smaller precise knife, and more often than not this one finds its way into my pocket. Ultra-lightweight, good steel, great edge, super ergonomic, and at a great price. I really don't have any issues with this knife.
Like the Size!
Esquire K.
I bought this for a small, quality EDC for those times when I wanted a good knife, but couldn't carry a large blade because of restrictions, or type of clothing. This looked great because it was small, but the tall blade profile allows it to be used like a larger knife. It is super attractive, well made, and near weightless. I really like the wire pocket clip. Objectively, -1 star because the handle feels a bit cheap, but then again, its a Spyderco, and my Endura with the same handle has lasted for over 20 years of hard use. But genuinely happy with the purchase.
5 years on, still in the rotation.
Sean C.
So light and yet capable. Fits great even in larger hands. Just great for EDC tasks.
Most Practical EDC
Liam G.
I feel this and the Delica share the title for best EDC knife. The blade length is very functional with the jimping, and allows for a small tool to actually feel practical in the hand.

I will admit, the ergos don't make this one feel as perfect as the Delica, it certainly won't leave you disappointed. While the black on this model look awesome, I prefer the Zome green for the "Dragonfly" look.

What sets this apart from almost any other knife you can find, is the functionality for the size, ability to disappear in the pocket, and ability to close one hand - despite the back-lock. You are getting a good steel, from a great company, easy middle finger flick, and a deep carry wire clip for a phenomenal price!
My first Spyderco
Michael J.
Went with this one over the delica based on blade shape. This is just a beautiful knife.
Only negative so far is the handle shape is a bit slim in hand. Fingers curl around the handle, but it definitely does not fill the hand (compared to Rat2). Still like this very much and will be keeping it, but will be buying the delica as well.
Love this knife
Omar R.
I love this knife so much. This knife is small but packs a big punch I threw a lanyard on it just to give it a little something extra to hold on to. I love the finger choil. This is one of my most carried knives in my collection next to my Delica 4.
Great knife,
Jacob M.
Love this knife, will use as an primary/backup EDC for years to come.
Small knife, massive package
William L.
Many people scoff at a small knife, leaving them for small tasks like opening letters or scraping dirt from under their fingernails. This knife does what you put the blade against, and asks for seconds. The finger choil and thumb ramp suck the knife to your hand like glue, and coupled with the bi-directional design on the scales, you would be doing something wrong if you lose your grip. The VG-10 steel holds an edge that would cut your eyeballs if you look for too long, and is easily maintained without sacrificing edge retention. Edge is easily polished to a mirror edge. Pocket clip is good for a knife this size. This knife is in my pocket or on my person every day, taking the tasks that the larger knife is not needed for.

Overall- Great knife in a compact package, buy one. Hell, buy 5 of em, you won't regret it.
