You are correct. I have seen models like the version at the top sometimes come up for sale. Were those ever offered in PE? I also noticed there are other slight variations as far as the newer d'fly 1's are concerned. There are the ones with the spyderco logo, and ones without (older), earlier ones without the boye dent and the newer ones (some with AUS-8 and others with the VG-10 if I am correct) with the dent. I have also noticed that on the serrated models, the serration pattern was slightly different than the older ones. The older ones ended with the two small serrations near the tip, and the newer ones, such as the serrated version I just got, end with one large scallop near the tip. Could they have possibly changed the serration pattern during the transition from the AUS-8 to the VG-10 to better wotk with the new steel they were using? I'll have to go back and take a closer look at exactly what version of the D'fly's that I have.The Deacon wrote:Congrats on the Dragonflies. Just to clarify, while Spyderco is calling the FRN Dragonfly with the wire clip the "Dragonfly 2", there were two "generations" of the integral clip FRN Dragonfly. The original ones had a lower profile, hollow saber ground blade, no spine bevel, and rounded transition between the spine and the thumb rest. Don't have mine handy to compare but, IIRC, there was also a minor change in the handle between those two versions.
