I'd have to pass on a all black Salt unless it was the hawkbill. The D'fly is my most collected pattern so I would probably buy one if it happened. I don't mind coated blades, but it offers little added value IMO.
Puzzled by the fact that a couple people need the dragonfly to be more discreet. I mean, it's a dragonfly.
To each their own. I sometimes carry a Dfly as a primary where blades greater than 2.5 inches long are illegal to possess. Both for personal style and to avoid attention, I'd rather not have a yellow chunk of plastic sticking out of my pocket. I have a PE black handled VG-10 Dfly2 as well as SE Salt. With a black Lil Native clip on it, the PE is pretty close to invisible on dark colored pants, but I much prefer the SE blade in H-1 for how I use this knife. Sure, I could Rit dye the Salt, but A) for some outdoor use I like having the yellow B) I carry AIWB sometimes and I don't want to worry about color transfer and C) I'd rather buy what I want and not have to mess with it.
I'm actually ambivalent on the coated blade, but the with the new Salt CQI black coated hardware a blacked out version would be no extra reach and it seems like there are a lot of fans of the black blades.
