Spyderco Firefly (Carey design)
Dale T.
Beautiful to look at, decent weight for its small size, nice smooth finish, and a perfect Spyderco flip-hole. My objections are 1) The handle is too smooth for a good grip given how small it is. 2) The clip is too small and so stiff it takes 2 hands to pocket it. 3) The regular price seems too high for a mass-market knife like this - i.e. very pretty, but mostly impractical.
A Nice Gentleman's Folder

The Firefly misses the mark as an EDC blade for me primarily with a few hotspots. For me, an EDC needs to have functional gimping especially with scales this slick that appear catered to a Gentleman Knife appearance. The abrupt slope at the spine of the blade that abutts the thumb hole would be a perfect location for mild gimping which would still mostly preserve the Gentleman Appeal that I suspect was an original design point. Hot spots are just not acceptable on my EDC blades. HotSpot1: end of CF portion where your thumb passes during deployment with thumb hole. Doesnt look like it in the image, but boy is it there. HotSpot2: edge of liner lock is pure square machined stock with no gimping or edge relief. Grabs the thumb with authority but not ideal for me beyond Gentleman use where I won't be using it over and over. HotSpot3: perifery edge of scales. Primarily noticeable in the finger choyl for the index finger. Blade - Knife is very nicely sharp out of box. Once I started focusing solely on the deployment I noticed that mine has a slightly gritty feel, not ideal for out of the box. Opening detent is secure ending with a satisfying click with the blade locked open. Detent if you will from open blade position is noticeably stiffer. Which is why I would always apply consistent pressure on the liner lock throughout the closing motion on my Firefly. Knife Clip - is great in both function and appearance. It is however reasonably stiffer than most of the clips on my Spydercos. In both hands it remains out of the way for me and does not provide any additional uncomfortable edges. The weight is spot on for both EDC and Gentleman folders. Overall thickness when closed isn't an issue for me concerning bulk. The knife looks great and will certainly grab attention from other knife enthusiasts.
In the end for me this knife makes a decent Gentleman's Folder and collection piece. However that's where it firmly ends for me. Possibly future design changes will make this more of a win for me. Is this knife worth the price tag for you? I hope this was helpful. I returned mine.
