Dragonfly 2 Partially Serrated Blade Folding Knife -
Features carrying over to the new version are the tried and tested mid sized blade and ergonomic handle along with a front finger choil and spine cusp. Also staying is the blade to handle geometry and leveraging points which make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger large knife when in the hand.
New refinements include: the addition of a left and right tip up wire clip, patented Bi-Directional Texturing™ on the handle, choil and spine jimping and screw together handle construction. The blade is still premium VG-10, now in a high performance flat grind with a PlainEdge or SpyderEdge.
The position of the enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole in relation to the pivot leads to smooth opening and the FRN (fiberglass reinforce nylon) handle fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles and leveraging spots.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
VG-10 Stainless Steel -
VG-10 has Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0, Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4, and contains less than 0.25 of Nickel (Ni). During forging, Mo and Cr forms hard double carbide bonds which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel. It has a hardness of 58-61.
Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) -
A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.
Bi Directional Texturing -
A texture molded into an FRN handle, which is a series of graduating, sized forward and backward steps that radiate outward from the center of the handle. This texture provides resistance to slipping and sliding when gripped in the hand.
Tip Up and Tip Down -
Refers to which direction the folded knife if positioned by its pocket clip. When closed and clipped in a pocket, whichever direction (up or down) the blade's tip sits defines if it is termed tip up or tip down.
