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, flat ground, VG10 stainless steel blade and Green Zome Bi-directional Textured FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Zome is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique known as Zome (pronounced “zoh-may”) is a special technique for dyeing textiles and creating patterns using dyes from plants, flowers, fruit and other natural sources. Spyderco uses these special dyes to completely permeate their FRN handles uniquely and permanently coloring them.
Blade: Delivered in an iconic Leaf-shaped blade, flat ground, satin finished VG10 stainless steel has excellent slicing performance with a razor sharp plain edge. 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.
Japanese VG10: VG-10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a very good edge and holds it well. Popular with Japanese kitchen knife makers it is often hardened to 60-61 HRC. A popular choice for small pocket knives thanks to good edge holding and stain resistance VG10 works well with a high polished, acute edge for optimal slicing performance.
