Spyderco Dragonfly 2 ZDP-189

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 seem to be really hard on my blades lately and I like the idea of some extra edge retention.

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. 😉
