Spyderco's 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.

This Dragonfly 2 knife features a premium ZDP-189 stainless steel blade with a full flat grind and a plain cutting edge. The blade now has jimping at the choil and the spine for better control and feel. The handle now uses Spyderco's patented Bi-Directional Texturing on the British Racing Green 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.

Best Knife I Own!
Alejandro O.
Came very sharp out of the box. I put it in my pocket and forget about until i need it. Best of all I probably won't ever have to sharpen it. You can't go wrong with this knife.
In love
Alvis S.
Awesome little knife! Youíll forget itís in your pocket.
I'm loving it
Miguel L.
Got it recently, but already has grown on me. It's smaller than I thought, but very capable. If my Delica was light this is a feather, super compact and comfortable for quick and on the go tasks. This particular steel is amazing, really over my expectations. I wouldn't try putting this knife thru heavy use thou, at side to side use (opening a plastic bottle cap) it shows signs of weakness. Keep it for what it is, cutting. My new Para 3 has replaced my Delica but I can't replace this, it's king at his size and category.
Vicious Little Critter

For new knife enthusiasts, I'd recommend the VG-10 version because it is more corrosion resistant, tougher, and much easier to sharpen. Although, this model definitely is a much larger beast.

Just like the VG-10 variant, this model has everything needed in a knife, and very little left out. But this time it has ZDP, and this makes it a super box-cutter the size of a chap stick!
Great mini knife
treestain h.
This is probably the best mini edc knife you can carry while still feeling like youíre carrying a knife. The steel is amazing and itís very easily deployed with one hand despite not seeming like it. I carry this in my change pocket as a secondary blade to use in case of sheeple mostly 10/10 would recommend
EDC perfection
Conner G.
Iíve had my eye on the Dragonfly 2 for a long time now, and was fortunate enough to get it as a Christmas gift this year. It hasnít left my pocket since. Itís small and light enough that it disappears into my pocket when I donít need it, and itís there when I do. For a little blade it cuts way above its size. ZDP-189 is a fantastic steel, and is an absolute razor blade. Iíve had trouble keeping myself from breaking down every box I come across. There is a patch of hair missing from my arm because it is still hair shaving shape, even after being on Christmas duty. Seriously this is one of the best EDC knives Iíve ever owned. Buy one, you wonít reget it.
Can't go wrong
Travis M.
The Dragonfly is such a staple in Spyderco's line-up for a reason. For being so small, it preforms like any other larger knife would. The steel will chip easily if you're careless, though.
What More Can I Say?
Connor J.
As you've seen with the other reviews, this knife is awesome! It's small enjoy to be forgotten, but large enough for actual use. The ZDP-189 is a great steel and comes shaving sharp, for which my only complaint is that of rust when I run with it (I sweat a lot). The green of the handles in much more prominent than it is on the website, and I really enjoy it!
Perfect EDC no matter what anyone says.
Young C.
I bought this dragonfly with the zdp189 as recommended. For an edc I wanted small but not too small.

And that's exactly what I got. Blade is very useable and the thing weighs so little that you almost forgot you put it in your pocket.

Plus the British green color I got is killer.

Definitely add this to your collection you won't be sorry
Great first knife
Colin W.
Bought this as my first knife and was impressed as soon as I took it out of the box! It came razor sharp, and due to its great steel, stayed incredibly sharp too. If anybody needs a first knife, look no further!
Cuts way bigger than it is
Jon D.
Fantastic knife. Sharp out of the box, and slices through everything with ease. Nice in the hand, and small in the pocket with minimal weight. A competent and appreciated addition to my EDC collection.

Just get one.
Instant Favorite
Ashton S.
If you don't buy this, you are missing out.

Fantastic little knife. One of the single sharpest blades I have ever unboxed, period. This thing is wicked!

Great little EDC, super light, feels right at home in my large-glove-size hands. Disappears clipped to or down in the pocket. Clip works as intended, no pocket shredding. Choil is new for me but I like it, jimping is about as aggressive as I would want in a knife intended to be used barehanded. Can get all four fingers on the handle comfortably with the choil. No blade wiggle, but I also make no mistakes about a FRN-handled knife with no liners.

Is the price worth it? Even the nice BHQ price had me on the fence for such a small piece. Money well spent is all I can say.
Don't shy away.
Mike k.
First off I have big hands. This is a tiny knife but that choil makes all the difference, full purchase on this little guy. Its sharper than all get out, sturdy lockup this will be above and beyond in my pocket a lot. But bottom line don't think this knife is too small. There's plenty to be had in this little package.
Must Own
James P.
If someone came to me and said they could only own one knife for edc, this is the knife I would recommend. Excellent blade steel upgrade over vg-10 and even better ergos. This little dude cuts better than many of my larger knives and you don't even know it's there at just over an ounce! Don't let the size fool you, big things do come in small packages. 11/10.
Great little blade
Geoffrey W.
Fantastic little knife and the ZDP-189 came super sharp... Sharpest knife out of the box that I've had... Handle sits in hand very well great grip and smooth action... ZERO blade play, Spyderco is always great, love my benchmade but only bought one and I've got multiple Spyderco's now and can't get enough of them
Patrick L.
I have carried this knife for over a year and it's as close to a perfect small-ish EDC knife as you can get. Light, perfectly balanced and designed, and with an amazing blade steel, this knife won't disappoint.
