I’m not much of a writer, but I have so much love for the amazing Spyderco Dragonfly 2. I thought I’d give this a go. Well, I’m kind of new to knives and such. Just started my collection right after last Christmas, and instantly got addicted. I mostly bought budget folders, my price range was 0-25 dollars. I thought paying more was crazy, until I saw a review on the dragonfly2. I ordered one before the review video ended, I was so impressed. I waited a few days, eagerly. It finally came, I grabbed the package and rushed in my house. This was my first REAL folder, my first Spyderco as well. Seeing that Spyderco box lit my eyes up. I opened it up and saw those bright orange FRN scales with a sweet VG10 blade. Just went crazy with it, I flipped it open for hours that day. It’s been the greatest tool i’ve ever owned. I’ve never handled any blade steel better than 8Cr13MoV or AUS8, VG10 is incredible so far. I don’t have to worry about any rusting, because of it’s amazing corrosion resistance. I haven’t sharpened it yet, and it’s still going strong. I’m actually thinking about getting an expensive sharpener for this blade, I’m currently just using a water stone. I feel like this blade deserves better. I’ve done so much with this little blade, opening simple mail to food prep. I’ve even done some yard work with it, nothing too heavy though. The lightness on this blade constantly has me patting my pockets to make sure it’s on me. Once you put it in your pockets, it feels lighter than your wallet. It doesn’t weigh you down at all, perfect for people who don’t wear heavy duty pants and such. If you work in an office, this blade is meant for you. The blade shape is people friendly, the lightness is perfect for slacks, great for opening letters/cutting cardboard, looks sleek and it’ll get you some compliments, guaranteed. The orange FRN handle scales has an amazing grip with the combination of the jimping on the finger choils, I can’t even imagine how great the ergonomics would be with G10 scales. I’ve dropped this blade plenty of times, without those orange FRN handles I’d be still looking for it. It’s has a very tight and useable wire pocket clip. Once you clip it on a pocket, it’s not going anywhere. The wire clip also compliments the appearance very well. I’ve gotten so many compliments from random strangers whenever I take it out of my pocket, to do simple tasks. It created some friendships, and gave me a reason to actually speak to people. I’m kind of a shy guy, having a reason to talk to people really helps with that. Many people use it as their backup blade, I just carry it as my main blade. It fulfills all the needs I can ask for from a blade. It’s just an overall great tool and I’m planning on buying more in the near future.
