I have a V-Toku2 and an orange VG-10. The VG-10 is probably my most carried knife just due to ease of carry while at work. I carry like Doc and remove the clip and drop the knife in my 5th pocket..

I want to get a G-10 eventually before it is discontinued like the other foliage Seki knives. I want to get a ZDP-189 to test the steel, and I want to get a SE H1 for kayaking/fishing (or hold out for a FFG PE LC200N)..

I was a little underwhelmed by the g10 to be perfectly honest, and I don’t really know why.

I have the much lighter Hap40 df, however, and I love it! I find the lighter, grippier frn suits its form better, and the handle shape is just genius anyhow.

We need more color variety, blues and reds.
That'd be nice. Also some greens, please.

Here's a rara avis in burgundy.

Might need the help of Doc Brown for trip back a decade to a little knife shop in Tokyo (now closed) which used to have !surprise! JDM variants.

I'm a big fan of the Dragonfly in many guises, and one is often my 2nd knife/watch pocket choice.
In particular, the stainless steel version, clip removed, rides thin and flat and unnoticeable, yet cuts like a beast without flex or lock rock issues.

Fave version in that is ATS55 SE or PE, perhaps nostalgic for all the years I carried such, but VG10 is good as well.

The FG G10 (and pakkawood) are lined and solid, sturdy though heavy. I have seen fakes of the FG G10, so beware of that (as always, these days...)

This burgundy is closer to that of the 2015 Forum Native than the burgundy of the Jess Horn or UKPK.

Well that does it. My wife saw my new yaller Dragonfly and said “I really like the color on that one.” So, you all know that means I’ve got to get her one too.

I only have one and it's so awesome I haven't found the need to get another one yet! I've gotten so used to the teeth that I have a hard time imagining using a plain edge Dragonfly. ImageUntitled by Six Pound Cat, on Flickr
That's my next DF need one for the beach and the boat most likely going to Rit Dye it too. :)

Resistance is futile.
