DragonFly Tattoo Stainless, Satin compact EDC folding knife with beautiful dragonfly engraving. Thanks to the excellent ergonomics of the grip and the ratio of the head to the handle, we get the impression of working with a larger folder. The knife's cutting capabilities are surprising compared to its petite appearance and innocent name DragonFly. A display of artistry from designer and founder of Spyderco, Sal Glesser!
VG-10 - a grade of stainless tool alloy steel created in Japan specifically for making premium blades and knives. The steel recipe was created by Takefu Special Steel co. Ltd, whose headquarters are located in Takefu, Fukui Prefecture. Initially used in the production of kitchen knives, it quickly found use as an excellent material for utility blades. Due to import restrictions, almost all knives made of VG-10 steel are produced in Seki, Japan.
Blade - Leaf-Shaped (leaf shape), 2.5 mm thick. Reflection-eliminating Satin Finish (semi-matte) coating. Plain blade is led out with a Full Flat Grind. The flat grind provides excellent cutting edge geometry with a sharp tip and has reduced the weight of the knife. The SpyderHole round cutout (Spyderco patent) allows the knife to be opened with the thumb. Solid Back-Lock with additional Boye Detent cutout to prevent accidental release of the lock when gripping the knife firmly. The notched thumb ramp and Finger Choil contoured index finger undercut between the Handle and the cutting edge make the knife easier to operate.
Handle grips made of stainless steel. Decorated with colorful dragonfly tattoo. Safety of use is enhanced by ergonomically profiled Handle for a comfortable and secure grip. The knife is equipped with a screw-on metal clip (right-side), allowing to carry the knife in tip-up position (tip up). In the back of the Handle there is a hole for a cord.
