Photo Review: Spyderco HAP40 Dragonfly

HAP40 is hot. I just got my hands on a Spyderco HAP40 Dragonfly--the latest in the series-- and I'm surprised I got one. So far the whole HAP40 series has sold out, but it seems like the Dragonfly has gone even faster than the Delica. If National Knives didn't put a one-per-customer limit on these, I don't think I would've scored one.

My sample is a good specimen. The lamination lines look a little wonky as usual, but I like that "artisan" look they have. The lockup is good, without any trace of "lock rock" in it. It's a tiny hair off center which is acceptable, especially since I'd have no chance of getting it exchanged.

Fit and finish is good, edge is good (not great) and overall it's a fine specimen. Owning the whole HAP40 set so far has been like being punched in the wallet, but I won't lose anything if I decide to part with one or more. Right now all I've decided is that eventually I'm going to start using the HAP40 Stretch.
