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 Dragonfly 2 maintains the same blade and handle geometry with leveraging points that make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger knife. The blade is hollow ground with jimping at the choil and the spine for better control and feel. The handle 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.
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. I really enjoy this model in the Zome green since it really emphasizes 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!
Don't be fooled by the small size, the ergonomics are surprisingly efficient even on larger hands and that little blade can handle all of your average day to day light duty tasks. Nice steel that holds an edge and in this particular Zome FRN, it is very unique and awesome looking. For the person looking for an ultra light EDC knife that is small but has a Napoleon complex... this is your knife.
The gimping is functional and comfortable. The swedge looks great. It's quite effective. I'll probably end up collecting quite a few of these.
great backup blade! razor sharp out the box. i haven't used it much but i love it and I'm happy it. i usually carry it with another larger knife. It is a little price for what you get, however I enjoy it and would buy again if i lost this one.
Great ergonomics for such a small knife. Extremely sharp right out of the box. The only drawback is that the screw holding the wire clip is stripped, with the result that I cannot remove the clip. Tried to contact Spyderco for a fix but no response after five days, so looks like I'll have to deal with it.
