Compact knives can be somewhat challenging opening one handed but the Dragonfly 2 Emerson Opener has a simple solution. The addition of the Emerson Wave feature, an integral hook that snags the top of the pocket, allows the user to automatically open the blade as the knife is drawn. As with other Spyderco/Emerson collaborations the Dragonfly 2 has handsome dark gray FRN handles. The rest of the construction remains the same for a familiar operating platform. This version comes with dark blue gray FRN handles and a saber ground, plain edge VG10 blade.
Brand new, directly from Spyderco, Japan.
Blade: The Saber ground VG-10 steel blade comes with a razor sharp plain edge and fine satin finish. Spyderco’s Round Hole offers ambidextrous opening while the jimped thumb ramp and choil deliver precision control and security. If you want the ultimate in high-speed deployment utilize the Wave feature and deploy the blade as you draw the knife. The sub-2 inch cutting edge punches above its weight with added durability from the saber grind for heavier utility tasks.
Handle: Tough, lightweight FRN with equipped with Spyderco’s trademark bi-directional texturing offers security in hand even in such a small package and come in a handsome dark gray. A classic lock back mechanism offers security in use and fully ambidextrous operation for left and right-hand users.
