Kayak Fishing Knife Review: Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Salt

A quick review of my kayak fishing knife for the past 3 seasons, the Spyderco Dragonfly 2 Salt in H1 steel/serrated edge.

I highly recommend any of the Spyderco H1 knives for fishing, esp saltwater fishing.

Let me know if you guys would like to see a rod arsenal/review type video, I think I have a few interesting things to say re how I go about selecting rods…but would appreciate your feedback!

I use the dragonfly salt with a plain edge, but I use when I fish on a boat. The reason I got one with a plain edge is for cutting line or opening bait packages/chum.

Have been looking all over for a Salt vs Dragonfly Salt comparison, as well as plain edge vs serrated. Yours is the first one that mention the points. Very happy I came across your video! Thanks!

Having said that… I’ve sharpened numerous commercial divers knives (Atlantic Salt) in the Gulf of Mexico. They are cutting hawser lines & yellow polypropylene line as well as various other materials. I’ve had one guys knife which was so dull it couldn’t cut bread. I strongly recommend using the Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker… but YOU MUST wash the metal deposits of your stones as directed.
It’s been my experience personally as well as sharpening these H1 blades for divers, the blade is corrosion resistant yet soft and dulls quickly!!
Nice knife but plain edge is always better.

At 4:00 of this video, what’s that huge snap called that you put through the mouth and gills to keep the fluke in the water? Thanks!

Cool. I have the spyderco Salt H1 serated in yellow. I got it years ago after my leatherman rusted right away in my pfd.
