Spyderco 2015 Production Prototype – Peter Carey Firefly

The Firefly made its second appearance at an Amsterdam Meet, click here to see my photos and impression from last year. The Firefly has encountered some setbacks in production, which is the reason why it is not out already. At the IWA Show in Germany I had some additional time to handle the Firefly prototype. I noticed that it felt on step smaller in size and handling than a Delica. The handle itself was a bit too short for my taste, so I would add a lanyard to fix this. The fit and finish of this prototype was pretty amazing. I could feel zero gaps between the full carbon fiber bolsters, the orange G-10 handle and the steel frame. It’s a very impressive gent’s knife.
