Special Ladybug Idea

Postby Woodpuppy » Wed May 20, 2020 11:39 am

@Ladybug93 & @Mushroom have apparently both had the same idea, and I loved it so I’m popping up a poll. I can only list 10 poll items, so after Y/N that leaves 8 steels I can list. You can choose more than 1 steel; Add more in the comments, including SE/PE!

For my part, if going with H1 I’d like it SE.

of course i'm down. i voted for h1 (because that's already a thing for the ladybug), lc200n (because i love it, but not sure it would be cost-effective enough to actually buy), and spy27 (because the ladybug was my first spyderco and it seems fitting to have a proprietary steel in this model). my first choice would probably be h1 in se, but i'd take it in any steel.

Absolutely, LC200N, SE please. I'll buy several for myself and for gifts. This is an genius idea and it's money in the bank.

Ladybugs are great, but I just don't like how zome looks. Cool idea though.

Love this idea! I also voted vg10 to keep it affordable, but I'd reeeealy prefer a SE version. There aren't enough SE ladybug colors right now!

I'm down and while the VG10 is always good, I'd really like to see this in a Hawkbill LC200N version. Though a Hawkbill in any steel would do.

I forgot all about this thread. All the needed ingredients are there, just needs pushed into production.

I love this idea!!!

I wouldn't be interested in paying 25% extra for LC200N, but I would definitely buy one in most other steel options. I'd prefer VG-10 as it is plenty corrosion resistant for my needs. Had one in VG-10 on my keys well over a decade with no corrosion problems, so I'd prefer not to pay extra for less edge holding.

I'm not a Ladybug fan ... but if I was I can see the appeal of this. DLT is likely listening.

I did pick up the Delica and actually like it more in person than in the photo as the red isn't as vibrant. The Delica is done in 20CV and I think that would be a great steel for the ladybug as well. Why would you want to do something other???

I cringe every time I hear hawkbill and ladybug together. The only knife I’ve ever had open up in the pocket and I have a nice scar to show for it.

The gap between the handle and edge with the blade in the closed position is a poor compromise for a knife designed to be carried in the pocket.

I know there are a lot of hawkbill fans, but shoehorning a blade shape into a handle not designed for it is not always a good thing.

It's a great excuse to bring back a sheepsfoot Ladybug. Perfect compromise.

That would be cool. Or a wharnie (The difference is small, esp at this scale).
