SP28PT: C28PT Dragonfly SS Tatoo

At Spyderco we design and manufacture knives to be functional, elemental cutting tools you will use and can rely on for years to come. Function and cutting performance are our primary focus but we do on occasion create something equally beautiful with artistic value. We’re glad to introduce you to our C28PT DragonFly Tattoo folder with multi-color dragonfly etching. We believe it offers the best of both worlds.

Beauty and function. These two words bring to mind different images to different people. Architects think buildings, engineers picture construction projects, knife people think sharp and shiny things, like the Spyderco C28PT Dragonfly Stainless Tattoo with dragonfly etching. Like all Spyderco DragonFlys its cutting ability far surpasses its diminutive package and innocuous name.

It starts with a functional VG-10 blade and an all stainless steel handle. Then it’s beautified with bright poly-chromatic dragonfly art etched into the handle. The VG-10 full flat-ground blade is 2-1/4” inches of cutting aptitude with a cusp on the blade’s spine to naturally position the thumb in control over the sharp edge. Blade and handle geometry create a variety of grip angles and leveraging points so when held and used the knife feels and reacts like a larger tool in the hand. Even the position of the Spyderco Round Hole, relative to the pivot, is precise for smooth opening, hitting all the correct pressure points in the hand ergonomically. It carries right-hand tip-up with a steel pocket clip that can also be used as a money clip.

Our knifemaking commitment is to manufacture performance and quality that is consistently dependable.

A collectable more than a usefultool
The knife arrived by Pony Express. The entire knife is one of top shelf quality for a manufactured knife. It is truly more of a last ditch defensive knife, however, it is perfect for my daughter starting out on a small knife collection. I was thoroughly impressed with the fit. finish, scales, blade sharpness, and unique collectible attributes. I would prefer a stronger locking mechanism, but I would suppose that for the price we got everything we could for the buck so that Spyderco could still make a reasonable profit. The scales, blade, and fit/finish are outstanding. Time will tell if the tattoo will hold up, or not. I see this knife as a collectible, and not as an EDC tool.

Spyderco C28PT Dragonfly SS Tattoo 2-5/16"
I purchased this for my daughter to carry as a last resort backup. She loves it. She states it is perfect for her hand, and is crafted with utmost quality. I will be purchasing her a Harpy as a better course of self defense. She states that the knife is exceptionally well balanced, has a safe handling effect, and the weight is perfect. This is truly a collectable knife. It is manufactured with a VG-10 blade which is a perfect balance of durability, edge retention, cutting power, and rust resistance. She lives near the beach in Central Florida area. My daughter is 5'4", and weighs in at 120 pounds. Her hands are a woman's medium. I would rate this very high on a personal protection EDC knife, and especially for women.

Great EDC
Got this for my wife to cary in her purse, but I want to steal it back. Has a great feel in the hand, smooth operation. Remarkably heavy compared to the FRN version, I got one of those for my son. Not a detraction, actually lends to a sense of quality and confidence in using, but the FRN is shockingly light, and I really notice the weight difference between the two. Nice piece of kit, highly recommend (both, actually)
