The MODIFIED C28FP2K390 Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Lightweight K390 Knife is a new iteration of a classic compact EDC that features an ACID STONEWASH 2.29 inch leaf shaped blade made of Bohler-Uddeholm K390 tool steel, .098 inch thick. The ACID STONEWASHED blade has a full flat grind, a notched thumb ramp for secure grip, and the Spyderco Hole for ambidextrous one hand opening. The blue FRN (fiberglass nylon resin) handle has been given a black Rit Dye fade starting from the pivot, which steadily fades toward the clip. The hardware / pocket clip contrasts nicely with our bronze heat color. The MODIFIED Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Lightweight K390 Knife has an overall open length of 5.62 inches, and it weighs 1.2 ounces. Made in Japan.
From the 2020 Spyderco Reveal 5 product guide: Originally released in 1994, the Dragonfly was one of Spyderco's original lightweight knives and helped to introduce the use of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles.
We've always taken great pride in our efforts to push the envelope of performance by offering exotic blade steels in our knives. With that spirit in mind, we are proud to offer the Dragonfly 2 Lightweight with a blade crafted from K390.
Manufactured by Böhler-Uddeholm, K390 MICROCLEAN® is a state-of-the-art cold work tool steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its advanced alloy mix was specifically developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching operations. Despite its toughness, its exceptionally fine, homogeneous microstructure also makes it readily machinable and easy to heat treat.
Collectively, these qualities make K390 an outstanding blade material for true steel connoisseurs.
