Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Wharncliffe Plain K390 Dark Cyan Blue FRN C28FP2WK390
Often small knives get respect equivalent to their size: very little. Spyderco's Dragonfly might make you reconsider because in this case you get a subcompact size and a lightweight platform with high-end performance. As with many designs from Spyderco, the Dragonfly has superb ergonomics with excellent leverage and control thanks to the jimped thumb ramp and index finger choil. This Wharncliffe blade version comes with a plain edge, flat ground, Bohler K390 tool steel blade and dark cyan blue Bi-directional Textured FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Instead of the iconic Leaf-shaped this Dragonfly comes with flat ground, satin finished Bohler K390 tool steel Wharncliffe blade for exceptional edge retention. Wharncliffe blades deliver full power from heel to tip for exceptional slicing and have a fine tip for piercing and detail work. A thumb ramp and index finger choil offer enhanced control and an ergonomic grip while reducing the overall footprint. A subtle spine swedge tapers to a fine point for piercing and detail work. Spyderco's ambidextrous Round Hole opener makes for smooth, easy, one hand operation.
Handle: Linerless FRN handles are durable, lightweight and impervious to the elements with contoured edges for comfort and Bi-Directional texturing for exceptional traction. Ergonomic in design, the pommel end forms a perfect pinky finger shelf for added leverage combining with the index choil to offer plenty of grip area in a compact package. A sturdy mid-back lock design offers rock solid lock up and reliable security with a Boye Dent for added safety in a heavy grip. A generous hole is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, stainless steel wire pocket clip.
Bohler K390: Bohler K390 is a cold work tool steel made with 3rd Generation particle metallurgy processing specifically developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching operations. K390 is exceptionally tough and free of impurities compared to conventional steels with CPM-10V-level edge retention and increased toughness. As a tool steel K390 is not stainless and requires consideration to prevent corrosion.
