Many of us buy small gentlemen's knives assuming we'll use them for undemanding cutting chores. While that is normally the case, the Dragonfly's diminutive size belies its cutting capabilities. When need be, it will cut and perform like a much larger folder because Spyderco's Research and Development team focused on creating a small but ergonomically superior package out of high-performance materials. A good choice for the ultra light backpacker (full weight of this knife is only 1.2 ounces) this also is a solid favorite as a pocket knife choice for everyday urban users. The 2 5/16 inch stainless steel blade and serrated edge serves well for the usual tasks (opening mail, opening boxes, wishing you were somewhere else doing something you liked, etc.) as well as the occasional real and satisfying cutting chore.
In the woods, if you find frequent reasons to cut rope or fabric the serrated edge is a plus. If you like to whittle, find a plain edge style (Spyderco sells many different models in this same range). If you intend to sharpen it yourself rather than send it back to Spyderco for that, the plain edge models are mandatory.
The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 includes a pocket clip, so it won't get lost in the depths of your pants, but again this is more an urban solution than a wilderness concept; going through heavy brush, it wouldn't take long for this knife to get flipped out and far away, if you rely on just that pocket clip to hold it.
In order for the knife to feel like a larger knife in the hand, it needed well-designed ergonomics. A forefinger-choil and thumb-rest give the hand purchase points, filling out the palm and offering cutting control. Its leaf-shaped blade is flat-ground VG-10 and the Spyderco Round Hole is 11mm facilitating easy opening. FRN handle is textured with Volcano-Grip and a tip-up integral pocket clip. Low profiled and weighing just over one ounce, the Spyderco Dragonfly Knives are one of the flagship models in Spyderco's Little Big Guy Knife line up. This knife is backed by an excellent warranty, and you can even open it with one hand.
