...and the Urban, slightly beefier than the Dragonfly, blade stock wise, but no lock (deeper choil though). As an added bonus the Urban can easily be upgraded with nicer scales, my BB/Elmax Urban is now truly gloat worthy with it's sexy Cuscadi "silk" CF scales :D
Oh dang. Didn’t even think of the urban. The k390 urban is one of the best knives. Love that thing.

The other thing in favor of a Dragonfly is that you can get it in several FRN colors, VG10, H1 or ZDP-189 blade steel and if you want a heavier, but dressed up D'fly the G10 and all stainless versions are still available as well ...and that's just current production models.

I'm enjoying the thin blade on the Baby Horn. It's a tiny knife, but not so light. Has a clip, I took it off.

A lot of good suggestions so far!

A couple more good small options would be the Chicago and the Cat. The Cat was a favorite of mine for a while.
We have a winner, the Chicago is small enough for my purposes and still looks like a full sized Spydie.

The spin is really small too and has a clip.
You might be better off with a ladybug on your keys though.
The Spin is the smallest Spyderco with a clip I believe. And it's a very nice knife with a comfortable grip and a well designed blade.

Two nit-picks with these, first, the openings for pivot and stanchions are *not* keyed ("D" shaped), second, the scales are just a fraction of a millimeter smaller than stock in length and width, so the backspring and tang of the blade stand proud of the scales by a tiny bit. Great solidity and look though, so I'm satisfied with them.

The pics don't do these scales justice, but here they are:

Not sure if the revamped CTS BD1 bladed version of the Chicago and Cat still use the same white polymer (PTFE?) washers my old 440C Cat came with, but if you find the blade centering, blade play or overall open-lock-unlock action disappointing then an upgrade to bronze pivot washers cures the issue, though you'll likely have to modify a generic PB washer to fit, since lock clearance and pivot diameter don't match any of the washers I have been able to get through knife supply sellers.

Dragonfly or Lil Native.

Perfect operable with one hand (flickable)

Ladybug is too small for that.
Grasshopper needs 2 hands to open.

The Squeak might fit the bill too, smaller than the urban.
