    I tried it (I guess I'm just as lazy as you are).

    It kind of works but it's not as effective as a good scrubbing, particularly with the medium rods (the brown ones). And with the ultra-fine rods,...

    I'm not a huge fan of serrations in general. I can see the point, I know they're very effective in some cases and on some types of materials, but for most of my cutting tasks a plain edge just suits...

    You can't go wrong with any of these, but I find the Endura a little bit more versatile and comfortable : even though the knives are very similar, I like the handling of the Endura better (different...

    I never quite understood why the Dragonfly (or the Ladybug, for that matter) wasn't available in the same colours as the Delica and Endura.

    And yes : I'd want one.

    From the stories I've heard, you'd definitely not be the most creepy. Probably in the top 10, though.

    I did buy a couple of back ups, for knives I couldn't see myself without at the time. But you learn more as you go along, tastes and priorities change, new knives pop up : realizing they would most...

    The Dragonfly has always been one of my favorite knives from Spyderco, and I like orange quite a bit. So, when the orange Dragonfly was introduced, it seemed I had no choice...

    I think the compression lock on the Para-military is actually easier to close left-handedly : with your left thumb on the lock and the other fingers safely on the side of the handle, you just let...

    _ orange Paramilitary 2 : perfect handling, excellent steel, smooth lock, good grip, right size. What's not to like?

    _ Dodo : intriguing knife, beautiful in its own peculiar way, very ergonomic... but too specialized for my taste. I sometimes regret having sold the Dodo, but I know I wouldn't have used it much.

    I mostly use the screwdrivers, the scissors and the awl, but as a matter of fact I did use the magnifying glass last week (to help remove a splinter).

    As for starting a fire with it, it's...

    My first knife was an Opinel my dad bought me when I was about 8 years old (probably a #8, which is the most common size).

    Small enough to be carried all the time, large enough to cope with most cutting tasks, inconspicuous yet comfortable to handle : the Dragonfly is the knife I use the most. One of the best designed...

    Yes, with a few rare exceptions (red Persian comes to mind).




    June? Good to know! I was afraid we would have to wait until the end of the year.

    There's been a pink sprint run recently, and there will be an orange Dragonfly later this year (regular production, or at least I think so).

    I'd go with Delica FFG and Dragonfly Salt : you can't go wrong with any of these. Of course, it also depends on which knives you already have.

    My Delica has now been replaced by a Paramilitary 2 as my go-to knife.

    Do I prefer the PM2? Of course! More comfortable handle, smoother lock, better looks, excellent steel : what's not to like?

    When it comes to handles, brown and grey are easily my least favorite colors; the only ones I won't buy no matter what. But some people like them, so I don't mind. And it's not as if Spyderco didn't...

    So far, variety being the spice of life, I've been able to resist the urge to buy several copies of the same knife.

    Orange Dragonfly ? I'll have three of them, thank you.

    Agreed.

    I was also a bit worried when I first sharpened my Izula : this thing was so sharp out of the box that I wasn't sure I would be able to keep it that way.
