Description
SP28GPFG: Dragonfly
Spyderco

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.

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!

Perfect small folder
This Dragonfly with G10 handles and VG10 blade is a bit more pricey than the similar FRN version. The G10 Dragonfly with steel liners gives the Dragonfly a higher level of sturdiness than the FRN Dragonfly. However, it is arguable that the extra sturdiness is unneccessary for a small folder and is not worth the extra weight. I have no qualms with FRN handles on my Spyderco knives. The current FRN handle design on Delica and Endura knives provides excellent grip, light weight, and relative durability. That being said, I would pay more to have G10 handles on my Delicas. The VG10 blade on the Dragonfly is very sharp and the flat grind makes it an excellent cutting tool. The blade shape is well suited for pretty much anything that you would use a knife this size for. The handle design is wonderful and the knife feels perfect when being used. The knife is easy to open and close with one hand (though the G10 Dragonfly is a bit tighter than some of the FRN Spyderco knives that I own). The lock is solid and I notice no side to side or up and down blade play.

Perfect little EDC.
This knife gets to tag along with me everyday. It has a very good balance of weight and size... light enough to never bother you in your pocket... just a big enough edge to get the job done. Pros: - Came razor sharp from the factory. - The G10+steel liners are much nicer than the FRN version. - The pocket clip, though it may looks flimsy, is very sturdy. - Pocket clip is tight, but it's still easy to pocket. - Fully ambidextrous. - G10 is ridiculously grippy. Cons: - It's almost too small, but the finger choil does a good job making up for that. - The blade's jimping on the thumb ramp will occasionally get caught up a bit when pocketing. - There is no jimping on the back of the knife before the thumb ramp like the FRN version. - The pocket clip pictured is actually longer than the one you will get. The G10 Dragonfly I got had a pocket clip the size of the FRN version. All in all, a very nice EDC.
