I seem to be on a small knife kick lately and I’m looking at how I can make them better. One of the first steps is a better knife blade steel. I’d like to get some opinions from those of you that have experience with both the ZDP-189 blades and the VG-10 blades.
- Is the ZDP-189 really that much of an upgrade?
- How much extra time do you get between sharpenings?
I’d really like to get the Spyderco Dragonfly 2 in the ZDP-189 steel, but it’s only available in the British Racing Green. Not that I don’t like the British Racing Green color, but I would prefer Stainless Steel. Unfortunately, the only way to end up with at Stainless Steel Spyderco Dragonfly 2 in ZDP-189 would be to switch blades. I guess I can still sell the Dragonfly 2 British Racing Green handle with the regular VG-10 blade and really confuse someone. 😉
