Description
SPMGREP: MGREP Manbug British Racing Green with ZDP-189 Super Steel
Spyderco
 
The manbug is a great size for the keyring. The blade is still large enough to do most chores that many of us do during the day- opening boxes, opening other containers, cutting the occasional fruit or vegetable, wire or whatever. This version with the ZDP-189 steel is really great. This steel seems to hold an edge for a very long time. Also, it seems to take a really great edge- it gets sharp. We like this offering from the creative folks at Spyderco and think you will, too.

More from Spyderco

The Manbug is a uniquely practical folder designed by Spyderco's founder, Sal Glesser. As the founder of the company, Glesser has, through the years, carried virtually every knife Spyderco produced, as well as many prototypes and special models that never went into production. Despite the wide array of knives available to him, the one he carries most often is the Spyderco LadyBug—a small, go-anywhere clipless folder that rides in the pocket. Anyone who has ever used a LadyBug knows that it cuts with an authority far beyond its size. However, as part of Spyderco's quest for C.Q.I. (Constant Quality Improvement), Glesser decided to make it even better. And, for anyone whose male ego made it difficult for them to carry a "LadyBug," he also made life easier. The result is the ManBug—an amazingly handy cutting tool that is more at home in larger hands while still sitting inconspicuously in a pocket or even on a keychain.
 
When compared to the Spyderco Ladybug, the Manbug is a contrast in gender-related differences. It is thicker and more robust than the thinner, lighter Ladybug. The ZDP-189 modified clip-point blade is fully flat-ground. Precise alignment of the Spyderco Round Hole in relation to the pivot and the backlock, allows for smooth one-hand opening. Clipless.

Little body, big winner
This is the 9th keyring knife I've added to my collection, and already it is my favorite of the bunch. Spyderco really nailed the concept perfectly with this model; it is light, strong, comfortable, and easy to get onto a keyring. The excellent tried-and-true Spyderco blade design works great as usual. And the super-hard steel juices it up considerably. This is exactly the kind of application ZDP-189 is perfect for! It is worth noting that this knife costs twice as much as some of the other keyring knives I'm comparing it to, but it absolutely earns every extra penny. I would be hard pressed to think of a way to make this better.
