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 Salt Series version comes with a fully serrated SpyderEdge, Hawkbill blade of hollow saber ground H1 stainless steel and Yellow Bi-directional Textured FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Delivered in a powerful Hawkbill profile, hollow saber ground, satin finished H1 stainless steel offers aggressive slicing performance with a fully serrated SpyderEdge. SpyderEdge serrations increase the cutting edge surface by up to 24% and make short work of tough, fibrous materials while still being capable of clean slicing with proper technique. 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.
H1 is a low-carbon, high-nitrogen, work hardening “steel” that is, for all practical purposes, impervious to rust. It has an attainable Rockwell hardness in the high 60s (especially when serrated) while still maintaining durability. For extremely corrosive environments, like salt water, this is the material of choice.
