Microtech Dragonfly Butterfly Knife
This is one of two Microtech Dragonflies I have owned, with the beautifully milled Aluminum handles and smooth stonewashed blade. This one was made during the period when 154CM was unreliable and has the 14-4CrMo steel blade. This specimen has the combo edged blade, which in my opinion is less desirable, however sometimes you can’t be picky when there’s a sale!
There are some questions as to whether or not Microtech is a good company to deal with, and based on what I’ve read, I would never support the company again. I usually don’t like to step on toes, but this is the case. However, it doesn’t mean that they don’t make first rate knives, because they do. Tony Marfione and the rest of the guys at Microtech may not be stand-up guys, but they make a mean knife.
Overall I think the Microtech Dragonfly is probably one of the best values in high-end butterfly knives being that you can get one for under $100. The spyderfly also falls into this category, but is not quite as easy to flip with. Perfectly made knife with excellent fit and finish.
