LOL ... we are brothers in :spyder: 's. Twelve days ago I made same observation at Sal's post at Messerforum:

Very observant Peter. We have a new model that will be shown at the SHOT show. It's a very small stainless steel slip joint. More of a "branding" model. It will go into your pocket with your loose change. 33mm blade length, 41mm long closed, 75mm open.

Should be acceptable just about anywhere.

An $8 retail value, now that's a deal!

Its a three layer laminate of ZDP 189, CPM M4, and titanium!

COME ON! this is supposed to be a fun little trinket. If you are serious about this steel question, you better not buy it.

They are legitimate, a little surprise if you will. We announced them to our Dealers/Distributors on January 1st and we have them here at SHOT Show.

They are little, but just as sharp as any other Spyderco.

I just picked up a couple of Bugs from SFO ...

If you know of anyone that collects or plays with dolls ... their dolls would love to have their very own Spydercos.

It is just the right scale for about an 18" dolls.

OK, let the wisecracks begin :p

Thanks for the pics there, much appreciated. No wisecracks from me, I will say those life like dolls really creep me out. My Mother-in-law has them everywhere in her living room.. I guess I shouldn't have watched Chuckie :)

I realize how my post could be misread, I didn't mean any disrespect. As a dealer you are the most reliable source on new models, after all you can hold them in your hand.

It was a failed attempt at a teaser. I have handled the bug and Sal told me about the how & why of this knife.
