Max Savino: its not peeerfect... those FRN knives definitely aren't very tough, now
days many people are really crazy about "hard use" I don't care about hard
use but that is the new thing.
csf survival: are you sure it's the best steel? I have not tryed it but I think s30v,
154cm, d2, and elmax are all better
Anthony Sculimbrene: Better is a hard thing to judge because it is task dependent. That said ZDP
is harder than those steels, has a higher carbon content and has more
Michael Schmidt: You convinced me to go with the zpd. And your right. Its worth it. :-)
FCM415: Do you own folders to break the lock, or cut stuff?
tallswede80: not good enough. lock is weak. get cold steel.
VeloWeave: You mention to keep it touched up. How do you touch yours up, what tools do
imacf90: wow, a dragonfly that has a screw at the pivot! looks like im getting it
classof77: The Dragonfly 2 design is epic. Only caveat with the Dfly's small wire
pocket clip, is that they will bend out & loosen if you carry the knife in
a pocket where something else (e.g. wallet) can push against the knife's
body when you sit, twisting it away from the clip. I have had to replace a
clip because of this.
Paul Dragosljvich: Go away, Cold Steel fan boys.
FCM415: The mini tuff lite? Love that knife. I take mine to work often. Look, all
Im saying is, Spyderco along with other brands know how to make a good
folding knife. Cold steel isnt the be all end all even with the triad lock
which is their ace card. Like I said, I havent had any Spyderco locks fail
on me and I was responding to a comment here saying that Their locks are
weak. If youre gonna use a knife for its intended purposes, it shouldnt
break on you EVER.
Buzz Mitchell: How is ZDP-189 compared to s30v?
tallswede80: Have you stopped jerking off in public, or are you still getting thrown in
prison for exposing yourself? straw dummy, false dichotomy. Folding knives
in general are crapty and weak compared to full tang knives, because the
tang is in two pieces. However, If I'm going to buy a folding knife, I buy
the knife that has the strongest and most durable lock, since the lock is
the weakest link.
FCM415: Just like Lynn Thompson, CS guys must insist on the durability of their
knives and hacksaw it on video to show just how strong it is. Cool. Why not
upgrade to a better bladesteel to be all superior while we are at it. My
collection will still consist of more than just Cold Steel. I do not see
any of my knives failing because of a lock failing. You can go on about
superiority though, have fun.
keepnitsharp: I currently carry a Spyderco Brown Endura FRN and I absolutely LOVE the
VG-10. I'm really excited to get my Dragonfly ZDP-189. I should recieve it
in the mail next couple of days. Also I have a Spyderco Sharpmaker , I've
been keeping the Endura hair popping :) Thanks for posting a good video on
a great knife.
shannonandsheila1: cold turd knives aint woth the wear and tear on a sharpening stone
GAWNSWAG: Is it worth spending almost double for ZDP rather than VG-10?
ayokay123: ZDP-189 vs VG10 is a tough call. They're both great blade steels, but while
the zdp-189 will hold an edge longer, the VG10 will withstand more lateral
force. Hard decision to make.
DrWmPierceAudio: Cold steel makes 2 inch utility edc folder with triad lock. And the triad
lock is not just stronger, its more durable. It will last longer with
normal use, hard use, easy use, whatever. Therefore it is superior in every
way. All knives are designed to cut and slice, but the cold steel cuts and
slices, and is also stronger, and therefore superior.
Jonathan Thompson: Do you like the frn handle? I am thinking about getting one of these guys
and I hear some folks complain the handle feels like cheap plastic. Also in
your video, is the handle of the DF2 black? I can only find ones with
British Racing Green. Thnaks
DarkSim77: Way to small..the PM2 and Delica are my favs..
Anthony Sculimbrene: I think so, but that is just me. If twice as much was $200 then no, but for
$40, yeah, go for it.
breckenridge25: I wholeheartedly agree. Since I got mine several months ago, I haven't
carried any other knife for more than a day at a time. The ZDP D'fly 2
rules the roost when it comes to my knives.
EverydayCommentary: MUCH harder. Takes a sharper angle too. Can chip a little and is sometimes
prone to tarnish, but I haven't had either happen yet.
SmalLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Unless your a
mrmaxx4400: Fine video and critique. I have the VG-10 version and it's a winner too.
Richard Ferguson: I like my delica in zdp slightly more then my dragonfly
FCM415: Cold Steels are nice also.Who hasn't seen those videos they put out where
they jackhammer their little 4 ounce folders to show you how strong they
are.But if you are going to suggest a Cold Steel over a 2 inch utility edc
folder because the lock is "weak", then I'd have to disagree.It is plenty
strong for everyday tasks a two inch pocket knife is meant for.I carry it
along with a bigger folder like a BM 710.Although not as strong as a triad
lock,I don't need it to be.I got fixed blades for that.
FCM415: Have you stopped dildoing your own ass in pulic,or do you still bend over
and expose yourself on occasion?The freak are you talking about ya daft
cunt.Petty crap aside, yeah fixed blade knives are the way to go for hard
use tasks.Not everyone batons wood and does spine whacks to test a lock on
a folder. I use my folders to cut and slice, which the dragonfly is deigned
for. I own axis, liner, frame, and backlocks and have not had any fail on
me in use.They can last a lifetime if you're not stupid.
