Spyderco MBKP Manbug - VG-10 Blade - Black FRN Handle

Spyderco's 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 fitting inconspicuously in a pocket or even on a keychain.

    A Real Mighty Mite

    Posted by RJ de Pedro on Feb 22nd 2012

    This is one nifty little cutter. I have many large folders and fixed blades, which I've used extensively and appreciate for their sturdiness and ability to transfer power in use, but I enjoy finding a small knife that can do a big job. This very small and light Spyderco Manbug is a real eye opener. I've just had it for three days and it's already showed it's capability, cutting through thick cardboard, heavy-duty packing straps, cord and rope. It's also peeled a few oranges and sliced some apples. It's so useful it made me realize that I've been missing out on the Ladybug line. There's real capability in this lightweight powerhouse for EDC pocket or even keychain duty. Another reminder that if Jeff carries it then you can trust it's a good tool.
