Wondering as well. Hopefully this and the LC200N Pacific Salt will be in the next reveal!

The teal s30v dragonfly sold out before I even knew it existed. I think an lc200n version would sell even better. Anybody want to sell their s30v dragonfly.

I was surprised at the sell out rate on the s30v. I love the dragonfly (and I admit I grabbed an s30v), but I far prefer ZDP-189 (which is easily available) to s30v.

I would be ALL over it! I carry a PE Salt Dragonfly while fishing or in my swim trunks at the beach/pool/lake.

I'd be in love with a LC200n to match my new Native salt, especially if it was made in black, yellow, and orange scale varients.

Please Sal, make this happen! lol
Funny, as I was sitting here touching up my carry for the summer in my trunks I was going to make this thread. I did a quick search and realized I posted on the first page of this one back in January. So, I'm still wishing for this to happen before next Spring or Summer, oh and I'd love some black scales.


Pic just because I love this knife and it'll be in my trunks at the lake for one of the last big Summer weekends of the year. Cheers!

Great points Sailhand.

I'd absolutely be up for a LC200N Dragonfly.

The Dragonfly is pure design perfection, I've used it as a discreet work knife for years, now. There's not a single element in the design that I'd change. I particularly lke the heavy swedge on the blade, which is not such a common feature on Spydies. It helps the blade just glide through those heavy industrial cardboards.

I love all of the 7 or 8 versions I've tried, but the ZDP189 version takes the cake, for my purposes.

This has become my favorite DF out of the many variations I have. It stays in my pajamas or light shorts, and in my waistband at the pool.

Haven’t tried the PE H1 yet. An LC200N PE would be a great match with this:

After using both, I heavily prefer SE LC200N over SE H1. It’s much easier to sharpen for me, and holds an edge about as long, or longer through heavy duty industrial cardboard. My SE Dragonfly salt and my ZDP Dragonfly are my most used work knives. I’d love to get an SE LC200N version. In the mean time, I’m going to get a couple of the K390 wharncliffe versions whenever those are released.
BRING ON THE MANIX XL SPRINTS AND EXCLUSIVES! And 10v or K390ify the Golden lineup, please.

Top 5 folders I’ve owned: Serrated Caribbean Leaf, Shaman, Manix XL, ZDP-189/CF Caly 3.5, Native LW.
Top 5 steels I’ve owned: LC200N, K390, CPM S90V, M390, CPM REX45.
Top 3 steels I want more of: M390 class, A11 class (including K390), CPM REX45.

This pretty well sums up my thoughts on the D’fly. Well said Cambertree, well designed Sal!

Why not try dying the handles? When I dyed my Tasman and Caribbean I just dropped the whole knife in the dye, blade and all. The Salt yellow should take a range of colours.

I would like a blacked out LC200N dragonfly in PE. Now that we have seen a coated dragonfly (Nutnfancy exclusive) I’m sure that a coated regular production is feasible!

The color wears off, scratches and fades. But yes I have dyed one. It's also hard to talk people into trying the salt. People will ask me what small pocket knife do you recommend, to which I usually reply the ladybug or Dragonfly salt.... to which they almost all universally (like 99.9% of the time) say... eww Yellow? No thanks.

I would definitely buy a Dragonfly 2 in LC200N. I already have the Caribbean and carry it regularly. Love the no rust design! The LC200N is a huge upgrade over the H1 as far as edge holding goes. I like the bright colors cause it makes the knife easy to find when dropped in the water or when the light is fading. I have a Dragonfly 2 in ZDP-189 which sees daily carry regardless of whatever other knife I carry on a given day. It's just too convenient for smaller cutting tasks which don't require something bigger. Hope to see a Dragonfly 2 in LC200N!

Whats happening with the lc200n dragonfly exclusive. Is one of the big retailers on board with this. The dragonfly is a natural match for lc200n and would be a great seller.

I think the entire Japan made Salt line will eventually be offered with the LC200N option.
