SPYDERCO C28ZFPGR2 DRAGONFLY 2 ZOME PLAIN GREEN
Spyderco is a cutlery company in America based in Colorado. It was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser.
Primarily, Spyderco emphasized selling their first product at fairs and trade shows held around the country. In 1981 Spyderco introduced their first folding knife, which pioneered the concept of a round hole in a blade for single-handed opening and many other features that ultimately modernized the knife industry and precisely defined the form of the modern folding knife.
This unique expression of the Dragonfly 2 combines all the features of this best-selling model with a multi-colored hand-dyed “zome” handle.
Zome (pronounced “zoh-may”) is a class of Japanese handicrafts that focuses on dyeing textiles. This ancient art form also includes many different methods of creating patterns on cloth using dyes derived from plants, flowers, fruit, and other natural sources and is closely related to many aspects of Japanese history and culture.
Inspired by this rich artistic heritage, Spyderco’s Zome knives are unique variations of their lightweight models, which feature injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles. The handles are molded in a light base color and then individually hand dyed by expert Japanese artisans. Using a technique reminiscent of traditional hiki-zome (brush dyeing), various colors of dye are hand brushed onto the handle to create distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns. Like Japan’s classical dyeing methods, the special dyes used completely permeate the FRN to permanently color it.
This Dragonfly 2 zome boasts all the defining also features of its breed, including a flat-ground VG10 stainless steel blade, a sturdy back lock mechanism, and also a reversible wire pocket clip. Its injection-molded FRN handle showcases a brilliant hand-dyed zome pattern in shades of green.
If you’re looking for a reliable EDC knife with a one-of-a-kind character, this is it.
