Spyderco LFGREP3 Ladybug 3 - ZDP-189 Blade - British Racing Green FRN Handle

When it comes to cutting tools smaller knives don't always garner the respect they deserve. As Spyderco's smallest locking folder, the Ladybug is a knife that should not be underestimated. In even novice hands the Ladybug can accomplish most cutting tasks with ease. It's razor sharp blade is easy to control, while applying only the needed pressure required.

Ladybugs have been on Spyderco's best-selling list for years. They are clip-less, designed for carrying on a keychain or with a thong or lanyard threaded through a hole at the handle's end. 

ZDP-189 is Japanese-manufactured stainless blade steel that has recently gained acclaim in the knife industry as one of the hardest, highest performing blade steels available on the market today.

Using powdered metallurgy technology, 3% of ZDP-189's structure is made of pure carbon, making the steel harder and enhancing edge retention capacity.  ZDP-189 is categorized as an exotic, high-performance blade steel which Spyderco offers as an option on several best-selling lightweight everyday-carry folders including the Ladybug3.

The handle is British Racing Green FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon), molded with Bi-Directional Texturing® for slip-resistance while cutting.  The PlainEdge blade is flat-ground from the spine to the cutting edge, offering abundant cutting power in a small folder.

    Spylady zdp-189

    Received the knife from Cutlery Shoppe a couple days early. Factory edge was quite sharp (look like a 34* edge - 17* per side). I used as it for 2 weeks - even hacked a whole 3kg chicken for a weekend bbq. Pushed thru most bones except for those thigh bones. Today, I took the edge down to 30* with mirror edges; yep, it's hair spliting sharp. It's super light and cute - it got nicknamed as 'shark tooth' by the wife. Well, soon I will have to give her a sharktooth of her own. Zdp189 is great but it will stain. This knife compliments well to an EDC. The reason I wanted this knife because I prefer not to abuse my Stretch II zdp189 20* mirror edge. btw - Gayle cpm-m4 is an awesome work/garden knife and it can takes serious rough/abuse tasks.

    Love this blade, razor sharp out of box, and extremely lightweight. I carry mine on my key chain. It can handle most tasks from opening letters to cutting down boxes etc. Great .6oz super light weight EDC. Plus, the British Racing Green is a great color and may possibly be a collectible in this color.
