SP28PT: C28PT Dragonfly SS Tatoo

At Spyderco we design and manufacture knives to be functional, elemental cutting tools you will use and can rely on for years to come. Function and cutting performance are our primary focus but we do on occasion create something equally beautiful with artistic value. We’re glad to introduce you to our C28PT DragonFly Tattoo folder with multi-color dragonfly etching. We believe it offers the best of both worlds.

Beauty and function. These two words bring to mind different images to different people. Architects think buildings, engineers picture construction projects, knife people think sharp and shiny things, like the Spyderco C28PT Dragonfly Stainless Tattoo with dragonfly etching. Like all Spyderco DragonFlys its cutting ability far surpasses its diminutive package and innocuous name.

It starts with a functional VG-10 blade and an all stainless steel handle. Then it’s beautified with bright poly-chromatic dragonfly art etched into the handle. The VG-10 full flat-ground blade is 2-1/4” inches of cutting aptitude with a cusp on the blade’s spine to naturally position the thumb in control over the sharp edge. Blade and handle geometry create a variety of grip angles and leveraging points so when held and used the knife feels and reacts like a larger tool in the hand. Even the position of the Spyderco Round Hole, relative to the pivot, is precise for smooth opening, hitting all the correct pressure points in the hand ergonomically. It carries right-hand tip-up with a steel pocket clip that can also be used as a money clip.

Our knifemaking commitment is to manufacture performance and quality that is consistently dependable.

Spyderco, best utility knives ever
Purchased as a gift based on my experience with the Spyderco brand. The Dragonfly is built the same as the Spyderco Delica. I own the later in stainless steel so I purchased the Dragonfly in stainless steel. It is smaller but built with the same high standards and craftsmanship of the Delica. It was given as a going away present to an employee who just entered veterinary school. The stainless steel construction and the quality of the steel blade will make this knife last for a lifetime.

A collectable more than a usefultool
The knife arrived by Pony Express. The entire knife is one of top shelf quality for a manufactured knife. It is truly more of a last ditch defensive knife, however, it is perfect for my daughter starting out on a small knife collection. I was thoroughly impressed with the fit. finish, scales, blade sharpness, and unique collectible attributes. I would prefer a stronger locking mechanism, but I would suppose that for the price we got everything we could for the buck so that Spyderco could still make a reasonable profit. The scales, blade, and fit/finish are outstanding. Time will tell if the tattoo will hold up, or not. I see this knife as a collectible, and not as an EDC tool.
