Spyderco
 
Non-locking folding knives aren't a new concept. They've been around for centuries without much change but continue selling among a sea of modern locking knives. The reason? While many knife buyers appreciate the traditional aspects of a non-locker, more want this type of knife because they live or work where laws prohibit carrying and using a locking pocketknife. Spyderco perceived a gap between traditional slipjoints and modern locking folders and created a product line called SLIPITS. SLIPITS offer reliable and sophisticated non-locking folders that open with one hand, have a finger choil for comfort and safety and are conveniently accessible. As the overall SLIPIT line expands, a subcategory of micro-sized SLIPITS with stainless steel handles is populating within and Spyderco calls them Bugs. The first Bug was matter-of-factly named, The Bug. Its non-locking blade is just barely over an inch long. Next up, a two-inch blade called the HoneyBee followed by the release of a larger one yet, The GrassHopper. Affable Bugs draw comments like "how cute" - a beneficial perception in a knife-cautious world but their size trumps the reality that they're serious business when it comes to cutting.

C133 Bug: Aerodynamically the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly but someone forgot to tell the bee that. It defies both nature and expectations that something that small performs such a grand maneuver. Like bumblebees, Spyderco Bugs perform unexpectedly. The smallest folder in the trio, Bugs are just 2-7/8" (73mm) long opened, and closed measure 1-5/8" (41mm). Blade length is 1-5/16" (33mm) and they weigh only 0.4oz (12g). Blade Steel is 3Cr.

C137 HoneyBee: The second folder in the micro-SLIPIT fraternity and a small step-up, size-wise, from the Bug. Its tiny blade reaches one-and-a-half inches long yet is all business when it comes to cutting. Overall: 3-5/8" 92mm. Blade length: 1-5/8" 41mm. Weight: 0.56oz 15g. Blade Steel is 3Cr.

C138 Grasshopper: The GrassHopper's size is closest to that of a true penknife with its blade over two-inches. Overall it's 5-1/32" 128mm. Blade length: 2-5/16" 59mm inches. Weight: 1.4oz 39.5g. Blade Steel is 3Cr.

All of the handles are chamfered so there are no squared-off edges digging or biting into a gripping hand. The handles are stainless steel with a laser engraved Spyderco bug and enough blank area for a small amount of engraving or customization as jewelry or a gift item. Handle lanyard-hole welcomes a chain for wear around a neck or a keychain.
