Often small knives get respect equivalent to their size: very little. Spyderco’s Dragonfly might make you reconsider because in this case you get a subcompact size and a lightweight platform with high-end performance. As with many designs from Spyderco, the Dragonfly has superb ergonomics with excellent leverage and control thanks to the jimped thumb ramp and index finger choil. This version comes with a plain edge, modified drop point blade of Bohler K390 tool steel and Dark Cyan Blue FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Delivered in an iconic Leaf-shaped blade, flat ground, satin finished K390 tool steel has excellent slicing performance with a razor sharp plain edge. K390 is a tough and highly wear resistant steel offering high-end edge retention for true steel connoisseurs. A thumb ramp and index finger choil offer enhanced control and an ergonomic grip while reducing the overall footprint. On the spine of the blade is a subtle swedge that tapers to a fine point for piercing and fine work. Spyderco’s ambidextrous Round Hole opener makes for smooth, easy, one hand operation.
Handle: Linerless FRN handles are durable, lightweight and impervious to the elements with contoured edges for comfort and exceptional traction in the hand thanks to the Bi-Directional texturing. Ergonomic in design, the pommel end forms a perfect pinky finger shelf for added leverage. The combination of index choil and pinky shelf offer plenty of grip area in a compact package. A sturdy mid-back lock design offers rock solid lock up and reliable security in use while the Boye Dent prevents accidental disengagement of the lock when gripping the handle with heavy pressure. A hole at the pommel end allows for easy lanyard attachment for added grip area.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, stainless steel wire pocket clip.
Bohler K390: Bohler K390 is a cold work tool steel made with 3rd Generation particle metallurgy processing specifically developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching operations. K390 is exceptionally tough and free of impurities compared to conventional steels with CPM-10V-level edge retention and increased toughness. As a tool steel K390 is not stainless and requires consideration to prevent corrosion.
