Ladybug salt preference?

Postby zippofanatic » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:47 pm

I was looking into a ladybug salt and I was curious which model people prefer; the plain edge, serrated edge, or hawkbill.

I think the Ladybug hawkbill makes for a great secondary blade to carry.
Don't mess with the Spyder because you think you're fly.

If you want to put it on key chain hawkbill is a bit bulky IMO, Serrated edge is said to be better than plain edge on H1.

I carry the H1 hawkbill SE on my keys if I carrying a plain edge primary knife. If you ask me you simply can't squeeze more cutting power into this size package. It's also to my knowledge the thinnest you can get Spyderco serrations in, which is a big deal if you like serrations. I've been planning on grinding the shoulders off the hollow grind on mine to make it slice even better.

I assume that the Hawkbill choice in the poll is for SE.

Yes I was referring to the SE version. I don't think they make a PE hawkbill salt, but I have never looked for one.

It was just 9 months ago when I got my first Spydie, the Ladybug Hawkbill Salt, and I was hooked. :)
So the Hawkbill Salt gets my vote, especially if it's just a secondary blade. For a keychain knife it doesn't get any cooler than this. :cool:
