Maybe. I haven't quite decided yet. It does seem like I've got a collection going on. :)

Interesting, Bloke! Why did you pick the SB sprint Manbug as your first Spyderco?

Just got in the V-Toku2 Manbug delivered today; my first Manbug. Despite my general preference for 3” or less blades, my initial impression of the Manbug is just sort of comical. It’s SO small! Even though I had seen pics and had a sense of the size, there was just no preparation for having it in hand. And yet ... it is seemingly just as capable at opening up all the Amazon packages as every other Spyderco I own.

Put a small fob on it and watch how it lengthens the handle.
- best wishes, Jazz.

I’d been playing with a Blue Paper Steel Higonokami, liked the steel and looked for a more conversional knife, stumbled across the SuperBlue MB, twenty odd Spyders and two years later ... Here I am Sheriff! :rolleyes:

Yes that's how it struck me at first too. It seems laughably small, but when you actually get it in hand and use it, it becomes a very capable knife.

Really, it's really no smaller than the Case slip-joints I used to carry all the time, and quite a bit stouter.

Just ordered a V-Toku2 Manbug. This will bring my MB collection to 9. Carry one almost everyday since it fits perfectly inside watch pocket.

I picked up my first Manbug, but basic black VG-10. I really love the size of this thing! Going to put the salt version on my Christmas wish list. I was surprised that the Manbug is the same thickness as the Dragonfly. It's a solid little knife!
