Seriously close to pulling trigger on a ZDP Dragonfly, just have to convince myself the backlock is gonna be ok.

Now I'm eyeing the Tuff.... someone please talk me out of it.

It's a strange knife - almost like an awkward, anabolic steroid-pumped cousin to the Military model. Found the design visually off-putting the 1st time I saw the production version, but like a lot of functional designs, the form follows the function. And I'm a form-follows-function type of guy, so again - please talk me out of it!

What I meant was ok for me. Just not a big fan of backlock knives. I am a one hand operated knife guy. Is this possible with this knife?

I just ordered myself a Kiwi 3. I wanted to try the wharncliffe and for $20, if I don't like it, I'm not out much for my first Spyderco.

Absolutely. Just do the ol' "flop & drop" like on just about any other Spyderco lock back. Works a treat. I can close my lock back Spyderco knives faster and safer than my frame and liner locks. :thumbup:

I haven't owned a Dragonfly, but every other backlock Spyderco I have played with was easy to close one handed. I say go for it!

Scored a PM2 in the Exchange. Looking forward to having my first PM2, and other than my bug, the only Spyderco in my collection currently.

No way that is one hell of a knife, I wouldn't talk anyone out of buying that one.

ZDP Dragonfly. I was thinking of getting a (worry free) H1 Dragonfly, but went with the ZDP for performance. I won't be getting it anytime soon, though, since I ordered it along with a pre-order (gotta save on shipping costs).
