Description
SP28PBK2: C28PBK2 Dragonfly 2
Spyderco

C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement is a process Spyderco uses to evaluate and refine longstanding established knife models. Sometime C.Q.I. changes are large and noticeable, sometimes they're smaller refinements. Recently we applied C.Q.I. to the classic Dragonfly creating a new Dragonfly 2. The Dragonfly 2 upgrades some notable features over the classic while keeping the important basics.

Features carrying-over to the new version are the tried and tested mid-sized blade and ergonomic handle along with a front-finger choil and spine cusp. Also staying int he blade-to-handle geometry and leveraging points which make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger knife when in the hand.

New refinements include: the addition of a left/right tip-up wire clip, patented Bi-Directional Texturing on the handle, choil and spine jimping and screw together handle construction. The blade is still premium VG-10, now in a high-performance flat-grind.

The position of the enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole in relation to the pivot leads to smooth oepning and the FRN (fiberglass reinforce nylon) handle fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles and leveraging spots.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight
FRN Handle Version
It's good for it's price. Compared to its G10 Dragonfly, the handle on this FRN black version feels weaker. One good pro of this knife out of the box is that it is even easier to open compared to its g-10 version out of the box. I personally do not like to meddle with the screws, as I like my folders to be aligned completely in the middle. Handle Feel and Handle Material is subjective. G10 feels smoother to me. This FRN handle feels like plastic. It is also slightly less resistant to fire, but I doubt many people will be burning their knife handles. The blade itself is still very good, VG-10. It was sharp out of the box for me. I also prefer a knife that weighs more, but that is my preference. I do not like those that weigh too little. This version is much lighter in feel than its G-10 version. Even though I dislike the handle, I like the knife as a whole, as much as I like the G-10 Dragonfly.

Best EDC I own
My son got me interested in getting an EDC with higher quality steel than the numerous knives I already had. So my requirements were a blade between 2-3 inches, weight less than 3 oz (less than 2 desired), better than 440C, plain non-serrated blade and a cost under $100. The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 meets all those requirements. I am especially impressed with the out of the box sharpness of the blade. My previous favorite knife for sharpness was a Buck #327 (frame lock), which I can get much sharper than my other knives. My favorite for size is a 20+ year old Puma, so old & worn I cannot read the model information. Finally my favorite for smoothness of action and lock (liner lock) is an old Kershaw #2420. The Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is sharper than my Buck #327, as smooth an action as the Kershaw, and as light as or lighter than my Puma. It is my new EDC!
