Question about the Dragonfly history...

Postby BladeMaster » Thu Mar 13, 2003 1:00 am

Okay, I was reading one of the little booklets that used to come packed in the knife boxes when I came across the Dragonfly description.It says that it was "developed in response to requsts from our customers".



Here's my question: What exactly were the requests made by the customers? What did people want from Spyderco?

From the Book(courtesy of 4 s ter for my reading and return):

pg 58:
In 1997 a steel-handled Dragonfly was introduced. It had spent a short time as MOdel CX05. In addition to reverting to Gin-1, the new name for G-2, the Dragonfly offers the newer flat ground blade in an all-steel package, which inclusded a standard steel clip. This is the only all-steel Clipit so far to be carried in a tip-up position, which fits the small handle mass.
The Dragonfly has always been a serious knife despite it's diminutive appearance. In the all-steel version it not *looks* as serious as it's larger siblings in the Clipit family.

My Word, My Honour, is my Life.
