SP28GPFG: Dragonfly

It seems like smaller knives get respect equivalent to their size, very little. Most people don’t look at a subcompact lightweight car and think “high-performance vehicle”. That estimation can change when it’s revealed that little clown-car disproportionately packs 350 horsepower and a high-speed racing package. Stature doesn’t always accurately represent ability and performance, as exampled in the Spyderco Dragonfly. Its cutting ability is unequal to its diminutive package and innocuous name. The small-knife–bigfeel, works through providently executed ergonomics and premium components like VG-10 blade steel, a foliage green G-10 handle. Shape also matters - the full flat-ground blade has a spine cusp providing the thumb a natural settling place, controlling the cutting edge. G-10 handle hits all the correct pressure points in the hand and has a purposeful flat shelf at the base where the pinkie finger rides as a leveraging point. Deep pocket wire clip.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.

Dragonfly Review
So far, I have only used my Dragonfly for EDC. Cutting plastic, cardboard, etc to make my urban life simpler. Vanadium Steel is good on this folder, length complies with certain laws so that is another pro. A possible con would be the thumb hole, but some consider that a pro. Personally do not like thumb holes, but even so, I can open it with ease. I just prefer a thumb stud. I fixed the problem using a zip tie, so it acts as a thumb stud for me. One thing I dislike is the wire clip. I personally prefer a non wire clip for this particular knife. I would want a solid clip, or a Cold Steel clip. Unfortunately, the attachment to the clip cannot be swapped with another type without having to modify the entire handle section. Besides that, it is the perfect "Little Big Knife." I like the feel of the handle, the look of the blade, its size, and the sharpness that comes with it. VG-10 Steel is high enough for me in carbon content and I hear that it is rust resistant. Overall, I like the knife, the handle, the lock type, the steel type, but I dislike the wire clip greatly.

Perfect !!!!!!
I use this knife has an EDC. The Pocket clip, the G10 scales and the VG10 blade are awesome and well build except the body of the knife that is not completely symmetrical it's a shame for this price. Otherwise if you need a small, light weight but sturdy EDC knife it will do the job...

Perfect gift
This is a very nice quality knife. It was the perfect gift for a knife lover guy or gal. The knife is very sharp and pocketable. Shipping from the Knife Center was speedy even during the Christmas rush. My son loved it!
