I'm not worried about legal issues, rather NKP's reactions. I live in Ontario, Canada.

The idea is either go as small as possible with a decent level of quality, or jump a size for the sake of a much larger jump in quality. I just want to be sure that jump is doable, taking into consideration the unreasonable fears of NKP. Just to be clear, as of this writing the only options I am con...

I'm absolutely sure that it can give someone a bad impression. But so can a Bug. Or a stick of gum. Or a paperclip. That said, it is very unlikely to cause a bad impression on anyone reasonable, as it's a tiny knife. Get a ladybug in a brightly colored handle and it becomes even less threatening lo...

But you are absolutely sure it gives no one a bad impression?

Spyderco Bug questions

How long does the spyderco bug hold a sharp edge for with occasional light cutting tasks (opening packages, cutting loose threads)? Does it have a sharp point, or just a working one? Is the grind as uneven as it looks in the photos, with a wider looking grind (when viewed from the side) near the tip...

A hollow and saber grind are different. If the blade is flat from the edge to where it becomes parallel on opposite sides it is a saber grind. If there is a concave curvature from the edge to where the blade gets thickest it is called a hollow grind. Ladybugs have a hollow grind. I like FFG better ...

Do the benefits of a full flat grind [manbug] vs a saber(hollow?) grind [ladybug] get outweighed by the worse tip geometry? The ffg is the main reason I like the manbug better.

I was disappointed in the tip shape of the Manbug. I found it difficult to sharpen well and ended up trading it off after a few months. I would prefer a slightly larger ladybug blade or a jester style blade. One of the few Spyderco's that I've been disappointed in performance wise. On a postive not...

Sorry, I guess it was the first commentator that forgot to vote. At the time of both your comments there was only one vote.

Evil D, I think you forgot to vote. If that is because of the SAK, don't worry, I specified three specific knives and that is the entire scope of my poll, no more, no less. The smaller SAKs are not the same as a locking, single purpose, properly shaped blade to many people, even if the lengths are c...

Wdr65, compared to the Ladybug's tip, did you like the Manbug's up swept tip more, less, or it didn't really matter? I am seriously thinking of getting an FRN Manbug (VG-10) but the tip shape has been rumored to be less than satisfactory.

Age of Keychain Spyderco users

In an effort to determine if their is a correlation between age and knife size, I would like to know at what age (if applicable) you got your: -Ladybug, any variation -Manbug, any variation -Jester, any variation If you have multiple ones, which side of 25 were you when you got the majority of them?...
