So many knives, so few pockets... :)

The Delica is the only knife I've ever pulled out at work (or anywhere for that matter) and had someone say "hm, I should get one of those." Don't get me wrong, I love the pocketability of the Dragonfly and it's perfect for most days, but the Delica hits the sweet spot for me. I could live the rest of my life with only a Delica, but a Dragonfly will inevitably leave me wanting more.

A few people mentioned the Chaparral over the Dfly. I haven't used the Chaparral, but the Dfly weighs half as much and I like to clip it in the collar of my polo shirt, between the buttons. I imagine it would be less comfortable than the Dfly for that.

I think the delica is to agressive to peal an apple with it at work.
The DF looks less like a knife.
I love to peal fruit with a spyder.


Is there a g10 green with vg-10 clone?
The question is because someone sell it for 75 euro and i do not want to get a clone.
Tough the seller looks like she has only real spydercos
There is a foliage green G10 Dragonfly, with VG-10 steel. This is my favorite DF, hands down. If I were going to get one, I would start with this model. Then, if you want to add an FRN model, or want to find one with special steel, special scales, or both, then go ahead. However, the green G10 is expensive, nearly 2x what the FRN models cost. But, it is worth it, in my opinion. http://www.knifeworks.com/spydercodrago ... L-PYxJ96uU

I could (and have) made a Dragonfly work as my primary knife but like others I prefer a larger blade. That said I do prefer the Dragonfly over the Delica, mainly because of ergonomics. If the grip were different on the Delica that would change.

It took my wife a bit to realize I'm not a sicko because I like knives, and to get used to the fact that I have a "few". Now, she's the one I let make the first cut with the proto Delica wharnie when Sal sent it. Give your wife time. Just don't spend money you don't have.
- best wishes, Jazz.
