Spyderco Dragonfly Tattoo Stainless Steel Plain VG10 C28PT
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 "Tattoo" version comes with a plain edge, flat ground, VG10 stainless steel blade and solid stainless steel handles with multi-color etched Dragonfly "tattoo" on the front.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Delivered in an iconic Leaf-shaped blade, flat ground, satin finished VG10 stainless steel has excellent slicing performance with a razor sharp plain edge. A thumb ramp and index finger choil offer enhanced control and an ergonomic grip while reducing the overall footprint. On the spine of the blade is a subtle swedge that tapers to a fine point for piercing and fine work. Spyderco's ambidextrous Round Hole opener makes for smooth, easy, one hand operation.
Handle: Solid, brushed stainless steel handles are durable and robust with contoured edges for comfort during extended use. The front scale has a beautifully multi-color etched dragonfly nature scene for striking visual appeal. Ergonomic in design, the pommel end forms a perfect pinky finger shelf for added leverage. The combination of index choil and pinky shelf offer plenty of grip area in a compact package. Slim and flat, the stainless handles deliver solid heft in the hand with a sturdy mid-back lock design with Boye Dent for added security. This feature prevents accidental disengagement of the lock when gripping the handle with heavy pressure. A hole at the pommel end allows for easy lanyard attachment for added grip area.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, stainless steel hourglass pocket clip.
Japanese VG10: VG-10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a very good edge and holds it well. Popular with Japanese kitchen knife makers it is often hardened to 60-61 HRC. A popular choice for small pocket knives thanks to good edge holding and stain resistance VG10 works well with a high polished, acute edge for optimal slicing performance.
