We've been trying to develop market appreciation for small high performance knives for many years now. It's hard to convince people that a small sharp blade is very useful, easy to carry and socially friendly.
SOOOOoooooo, while we're on the suibject, could I get some opinions?
We have out or in the works:
I don't know if we can get a small amount of thin ZDP so that could be a tough challenge. If we can, it would have to be British Racing Green to fit the other ZDP models.
We had requests for an H1 version, to which we responded. We've had requests for colors, orange & white were sprints, but I believe our managers decided to keep purple as a regular color.
We've had requests for:

Are there any other variations of our Ladybug that you would want to own?
I'm glad you responded to the calls for these variations of the Ladybug. As you may know I am a big fan of the Ladybug and have gifted so many to family and friends who now find them very useful. I carry an SE and a S/S PE version with me everywhere I go ! Bloody useful, simple, effective, AND KNP friendly.
The H1 version is one which I have hankered for so long. It is an ideal partner to take anywhere and everywhere. Purple is an excellent FRN colour. Foliage Green just adds another dimension to the lineup.... not my favourite colour in FRN but good for variety. I would like to see a Dark Blue and Plum coloured FRN for the Ladybug if possible. I think they will make excellent partners and great for NKP likeability. Also Pink ???
Not sure about using ZDP for such a small blade. It seems a bit wasteful and the amount of work and cost into that would make that particular Lady be too hard to reach.
FFG on a Ladybug would be interesting, but once again would the work involved in that make it unviable?
Whilst I love my premium knives, I think the Ladybug should be aimed squarely at its intended market. Apply the KISS principle to the Ladybug because it really does sit smack bang in there. Too much fussing with costly Titanium or CF for this tiny utility blade 'MAY' mean that not so many units would be sold.
Just my AUD 0.02c worth. YMMV
