In many ways, the Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is a perfect EDC knife. It’s compact and surprisingly capable with endless variations of style and steel since its inception. If you’ve never handled a Dragonfly 2 before, it’s easy to jump to conclusions with its appearance. With a tiny closed length of 3.33“, the Dragonfly 2 appears at first glance to be more a keychain knife than one suited as a main EDC blade. That is, until you deploy it and actually grip it hand, which is when it reveals its true secret. Through a combination of exact lengths, cleverly placed angles, and the blade geometry itself lending to the ergonomics, the Dragonfly actually allows a full-length grip with your entire hand, allowing control and leverage that belies its size. Most of the Dragonfly 2’s specs are in pursuit of its compact and pocketable design. The VG-10 blade sits at 2.28“, playing to both balance in hand as well as legalities across regions. The drop point shape featured in many Spyderco models allows plenty of cutting versatility, and deployment is handled with the trademark Round Hole. If you haven't had the pleasure of owning or using the Dragonfly 2 before, pick one up at the link below.

I carry one daily. Light enough not to notice in slacks, but very a very capable tool when needed.

" Spyderco Dragonfly 2 is a perfect EDC knife"
Completely agree!
It's a great knife. It was my first "real" (more expensive) knife. It definitely punches above its weight class. Great for saving space. My go to is the Para 3 Lightweight though.

My favourite knife of all time, own two: one for edc, one for backup in my daily bag. My only gripe with the vg-10 steel is I can’t get it hair popping sharp. Probably user error, but I have no trouble getting the cheaper steels razor sharp.
That shouldn't be a problem. Do you strop as your final step?
Shawn Bailey ·
I don’t, I use a 1000/4000 whetstone. Think stroping is the step I’ve been missing?
Worth a try. They are pretty cheap. I use a Spyderco Sharpmaker and then strop. A quick strop between sharpening also extends usage well.
