If I were at Spyderco and Sal and Eric asked my opinion about how to improve my favorite production knife ever, the C28 Dragonfly, for the third (or fourth, depending on how you count the upgrade from the integrated clip to the wire clip) generation here is what I would say.
Improvement #1: Round off the top of the thumb ramp
The Dragonfly has a lot of design heritage from the Caly3 and this is one place where the Caly3 outdoes its itty bitty brother. This is a super simple change and one that I would be surprised if Spyderco didn’t make. The UKPK, another of the Dragonfly’s design ancestors, also has a rounded over thumb ramp. So long as they retain the quality jimping, there is no chance that the excellent grip on the DFII will get worse. Instead, rounding off the thumb ramp will merely make the knife even more pocket friendly.
Chance of happening: I don’t want to say even money, but this one is a no-brainer.
I am not a big Dragonfly guy, but I really love the way Anthony writes.View Linked Article
