    It's dark thirty here, and I don't have a lightbox, so the pix aren't the best, but here you go.

    Dragonfly, hands down. The Lava weighs over twice as much as the FRN D'fly and has a quarter inch less cutting edge. For me, the Lava falls into the "too much weight for the edge" category. The ergonomics are also just a little off for my hands on the Lava.

    I love the Lava over the D'fly. Before I handled them I thought the Dfly would win. Once I got both the Lava won (for me ). The D'flys little annoying closed handled 'kick' irked me enough to denounce it. D'flys clip also was not too functional for me - it kept unclipping.

    I think they both require handling before discounting them fir your on use. Some of my mates can't seem to enjoy the awesoe retention of the Lava. It sits very securely in your hands due to the good ergo's.....but everyone's hands are different

    For some reason, when I grab the Lava, my ring finger slides up against my middle finger, making them feel crowded. It could have something to do with the size of my fingers.
