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, sometimes they're smaller
refinements. Recently we applied C.Q.I. to the classic Dragonfly
creating a new Dragonfly 2. The Dragonfly 2 upgrades some notable
features over the classic while keeping the important basics.
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 int he blade-to-handle geometry and leveraging
points which make the Dragonfly cut and feel like a much larger knife
when in the hand.
New refinements include: the addition of a left/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.
The position of the enlarged Spyderco Round Opening Hole in relation to
the pivot leads to smooth oepning and the FRN (fiberglass reinforce
nylon) handle fits the hand ergonomically with a series of grip angles
and leveraging spots.
