C.Q.I.-Constant Quality Improvement is a process Spyderco uses to evaluate and refine longstanding, established knife models. Sometimes C.Q.I. changes are large and noticeable, sometimes they're smaller refinements. Recently they applied C.Q.I. to the classic Dragonfly creating a new Dragonfly 2. The Dragonfly 2 upgrades some notable features over the classic while keeping the important basics.
One of the tradeoffs of compact knives is that they are somewhat more challenging to deploy one handed. The new Dragonfly 2 Emerson Opener solves that problem by enhancing the popular Dragonfly 2 Lightweight with an Emerson Opener—an integral hook that snags the top of the pocket to automatically open the blade as the knife is drawn.
Sporting a distinctive gray FRN handle with non-slip Bi-Directional Texturing, this high-speed version of the Dragonfly 2 proudly includes all the other defining features of this popular model.
