After owning my latest spydie for more than 2 weeks(tuesday will be 3), I think it's fair to give my review on it.
I find the blade size to be about the ideal for daily light-medium use. I can deflap about 60 boxes with it, before I need to take a break. My hand gets stiff after about 40 with the Cricket.
the Blade geometry is nice for it's size. it has a nice strong tip, the flatgrind just glides through any cutting surface.
for some reason, the Dragonfly gets about 160% sharper than my Delica. I figured the Delica was sharp, but this throws it out of the water! It may be the batches, and I'll take another shot wth ATS-55 before I move on to 440V and VG-10.
The handle shape allows my hand to grab both forward and reverse with little difficulty. by grabbing reverse, the side of my hand fits the thumb-rest(can't think of the correct term right now). In reverse grip, my pinky hits the kick/choil, thumb resting on the pinky-ledge at the base of the handle.
other than the SS handle getting scratched as much as it has, I'd say this is the perfect EDC in this day and age(with all the anti-knife, anti-weapon fanatics). I used it last night in front of all the sheeple at work, and didn't get a single odd look. I've had some go away from the cricket coming out.
All in all, I'd say this is one of the better knives Sal has put out. Maybe change the steel to vg-10 but thats it! I'll probably buy a couple FRN for x-mas gifts.
We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare...
