    Just ordered a Dragonfly2 myself, plain edge version! I have a Ladybug, which is awesome, but it's a little small for some tasks, where other knives I have are overkill. So hopefully this Dragonfly will be that perfect EDC I've been looking for.

    Not only that, apparently H1 steel holds a serrated edge better than say VG10 or 154cm.
    However it won't hold a plain edge as well.

    I've only read this, so anyone please correct me if I'm wrong

    I was told the same thing at my local knife shop, that serrated stays sharper longer with H1 steel.

    yea that's what I've heard too, but i use a straight edge way more than a serrated or 'spyder' edge, especially when im hunting

    Per Spyderco H1 when serrated holds an edge better than any steel they have tested. It's pretty beastly while remaining soft/tough in the places that aren't edge sensitive (blade spine, etc).

    I almost bought the yellow Dragonfly H1 plain edge for $4 more, but the black version just looked better to me; more EDC-ish I guess. It'll be here Friday with Amazon Prime. So, I'm thinking Delica next, working up the Spydie FRN handle food chain.

    Last night I was looking at a picture I found on Google of all the different FRN handled Spyderco models all lined up in different colors, and the wife walks in and says:
    "Hey, you're looking at knife :censored:."

    I've seen it listed as discontinued on a few reseller sites. I hope they're wrong too because I love them.

    I am going to defend the Cryo. Other than its weight, I do not see any problems with this knife. Especially for what you pay.

    Geez Chris.

    Would you please just get it over with and buy darned mini grip already?


    As near as I can figure, it's about the closest to what you should have, but haven't tried yet (unless I missed it somewhere)...

    I think the thread starter is missing or has left this thread. Maybe time for it to end.

    ^ those don't look too small.

    EDIT: that explains it.

    Yeah I'm still going to buy it. I haven't held one yet but I can't see anything wrong with it. I'm sure its a fantastic knife for the money.

    I certainly hope not

    I've been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt after his last booting from the forum. I certainly hope that he is trying to be a member of the community, rather than just trolling like many other members have been saying...

    Was he actually given the boot? I just thought he layed low and resurfaced. I don't see any effort on his part other than asking for advice. It's always a take. If he never pops up again is fine with me but I doubt it's the last.
