Should i pick up a Delica as well?
The Spyderco Trinity - the Dragonfly2, the Delica 4 and the Endura 4 Each one is as special as the others in its own way. In VG10 they are very good in ZDP-189 they are exceptional. If you carry those three knives you will have a bade appropriate for any task and never have to draw out a knife too big or intimidating for the job ant hand. I also had to buy the Dragonfly 2 in Leaf Green G10 scales simply because it is such a fine looking little knife for a dress situation.
Was reading about ZDP189 - heard it was hard to sharpen but holds an edge for ages (one reviewer had his edge for 1.5 years). Was thinking of getting ZDP189 first, but now unsure due to my research on reviews.
about the Dragonfly 2, don't tempt me!! haha, trying not to get too many knives (i know i won't even listen to myself and eventually cave in at some point)
I did exactly this but not all at once so I am only trying to help you save on the shipping. The Dragonfly 2 is an amazing little knife that has no idea that it is small. It is the first thing out of my pocket most of the time. It is such a cute looking little knife that no one has been intimidated by it.
I just recently got a Manix 2 backlock and it has taken over my front right pocket spot just because it is so nice and I use my Endura 4 as my primary kitchen food prep knife so I am using it all the time now.
Oh my I'm so sorry I didn't read up on this till now! How very very kind of you! I'll send you a message later today, if you're offering I'd much appreciate it in the future!!
No new knives incoming yet, I'm torn between a sliverax which I know I'll love, or something smaller like the dragonfly still haha! Thanks my overseas good soul I'll think of you before buying on impulse. Things are insanely expensive here. Even with import tax I save 75 to 100 bucks sometimes depending on the knive! Sigh, worth it though. Spyderco has rekindled my love for blades which I gave up after my grandfather passed. He was an expert and made his own knives but he passed too soon. He would be most impressed by spyderco and their design / philosophy. It seems I'm likely to follow where he left off now though haha!
