Ladybug is the only Endura/Delica family model I'm not planning on picking up. Really looking forward to the Wharnie versions too. Here's hoping we see an Endela Wharnie in K390!

I've been carrying and using mine since I got it. But I particularly like K390 and I've been working on this "Endura" family offering for some time.

Will the Emerson opener Endura be included? Thank you!

Will we see any SE edges in k390? I am curious about toughness in SE. I still have an SE zdp-189 Endura.

Hi Tbdoc,

We're testing now to see if it will hold a tooth. It is very difficult to serrate requiring dressing the serration wheel every 2 or 3 applications.

This is what I want to know! I would love to see a k390 Delica with an Emerson opener.

I have the following ladybugs in my Spyderco collection:

Ladybug 3 Black VG-10 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 Purple VG-10 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 Foliage Green VG-10 (SpyderEdge)
Ladybug 3 Salt Hawkbill (SpyderEdge)
Ladybug 3 ZDP-189 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 Tattoo VG-10 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 Super Blue (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 HAP40 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 V-Toku2 (PlainEdge)
Ladybug 3 Mahogany Pakkawood HAP40 (PlainEdge)

Manbug Salt Sheepfoot (SpyderEdge)
Manbug G10 Grey (PlainEdge)

It looks like this new Ladybug 3 K390 will be the only ladybug in my collection with Sal's signature on it :spyder:
Edit: I also have the Byrd Starling G10 carrying Sal's signature ...

Looking forward to it :)

Only heard of cut kits, never seen any. That's neat!

A Ladybug to cut yourself and then a kit to patch it up. ;)

I don't remember, is this a sprint or regular production item?

I thought it was going to be a navy blue based on previous comments, but it looks good in the pics
