C.Q.I.-Constant Quality Improvement is a process Spyderco uses to evaluate and refine longstanding established knife models. Sometime C.Q.I. changes are large and noticeable, on occasion they’re smaller refinements. Recently we applied C.Q.I. to the classic Dragonfly creating a new Dragonfly2. The Dragonfly2 upgrades some notable features over the classic even as keeping the essential basics. Features carrying-over to the new version are the tried and tested mid-sized blade and ergonomic maintain at the side of a front-finger choil and spine cusp. Also staying is the blade-to-maintain geometry and leveraging points which make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger large knife when within the hand. New refinements include: the addition of a left/right tip-up wire clip, patented Bi-Directional Texturing™ at the maintain, choil and spine jimping and screw together maintain construction. The blade is a high-performance flat-grind ZDP-189. The position of the enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole when it comes to the pivot ends up in smooth opening and the FRN (fiberglass beef up nylon) maintain fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles and leveraging spots.
