Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Lightweight, 2.25" VG-10 Blade, Black FRN Handles - C28PBK2
Dragonflies are among the most elegant creatures in existence. They hover and glide with grace, making every move with precision and purpose. The dragonfly is lightweight and quick while fading into the background until it needs to come into focus.
The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is an efficient and lightweight knife that takes after its namesake by flying from task to task with aptitude and finesse.
With a blade length of a mere 2.25 inches and a weight of 1.2 ounces, the Dragonfly 2 may look like a small knife but it feels large in the hand, thanks to a forefinger choil and thumb rest that allows you to fill out your palm with the knife.
The blade is made with VG-10 steel and features the classic Spyderco leaf-shaped design accompanied by the trademark Round Hole that makes one-handed opening a cinch.
This second iteration of the knife was improved upon through Spyderco's C.Q.I. (Constant Quality Improvement) process that uses feedback and research to make great designs even better.
One of the biggest changes in this second generation Dragonfly is the use of the brand's patented Bi-Directional Texturing made from fiberglass-reinforced nylon. This allows for a reliable carry no matter what direction you're pulling or pushing.
Also updated is the tip-up wire clip that can be used on either side of the knife and a screw together handle construction.
See how Spyderco managed to use geometry and angles to optimize every aspect of this small knife for yourself.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.

Great knife, had an older model with plastic pocket clip and after 10 years it broke. I liked it so much I bought another one.
