About Spyderco
Thinking beyond established knife industry practices has allowed Spyderco to introduce new innovations, including one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco remains dedicated to researching and developing improved, better-performing materials with function and reliability, and its unique cutlery line is a result of designing ergonomic, functional tools. The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.

It's so small that it looks like a toy, but don't let the size fool you. It is definitely a real knife. Spyderco makes quality blades and the Bug is just as functional as any of their other knives.

This knife is so tiny that you can keep it on your keychain and always have it when you need it. It is barely 1.5" when closed, which is shorter than the average key. I almost always carry a regular sized pocket knife with me but I still keep the Bug on my keychain for those times where I either forget or am unable to carry a normal pocketknife. It's ideal for everyday lightweight cutting jobs and tough enough to go through cardboard. However I wouldn't recommend it on hard cutting jobs because it's difficult to get a really firm grip on a 1.5" handle.

It has a slipjoint design, meaning the blade doesn't lock in place when opened but is held in place by the tension between the blade and the handle. The tension is just right to keep it open when you want it open and closed when you want it closed. The blade comes razor sharp out of the box and there is a hole in the handle for attaching it to a keychain.

I'm a knife hound and when I saw some Spyderco's on Amazon's website for under $10, I had to take the plunge. The SLIPITs from smallest to largest (so far) are the Bug -> Honeybee -> Grasshopper. The Bug is easily the easiest to call "cute" - because that's exactly what it is. I've uploaded a couple of customer images comparing the three knives to each other (and next to my "real" Spyderco) so you can get an idea of how small these things really are.

The only reason I've marked my Bug at 4 stars instead of 5 is the fact that it doesn't have a locking mechanism. Having worked with full-sized EDCs with and without locks, I can say that locks always come in handy, no matter what the size of the knife. While I don't plan on having to take down a wild boar with this knife, a simple locking mechanism would have been nice.

That being said, I still love the little thing. It's small enough to go anywhere - even fitting inside some wallets (for women, this thing fits in nicely in the change pocket). I have it clipped to the little lanyard inside of my purse so I can have it with me almost all the time. Of course the concern would be accidentally taking this through the security check. Key chain knife? Yeah it'd work - even though it doesn't have an open lock, the blade has quite a bit of friction keeping it closed, and since the blade isn't very heavy it doesn't try to "open itself". The blade is pretty thin, so I wouldn't use it to try and manhandle screws or pry open (whatever), but it holds a razor sharp edge.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received this product. I wanted something that could fit on my key chain without being too obtrusive or bulky in my pocket and this knife was the ticket! For those of you who wants a decently sized knife I wouldn't get this because it is small. My bottle opener is a good quarter-half inch longer than this knife (closed of course). It is also really sharp out of the box and it locks up tight when deployed. Good for little jobs and what I wanted it to do. Spyderco is definitely a good brand!

I really like the idea of carrying around some sort of cutting tool on my person, but am not as big of a fan of huge pocketknives and multitools that need their own holster/clip and even swiss-army-type knives make things seem extra bulky in my pocket. The Spyderco Bug is _exactly_ the kind of tool I needed. Most of my cutting needs involve deconstructing packaging: cutting tape, cutting zip ties off, and breaking down cardboard. This handles off of these admirably.

It nicely fits on my keychain and lays flat against all of my other keys. And as far as the slip joint is concerned, never had the blade slip closed on me - but I would caution you if you plan to use it as a drop-point knife regularly.

I understand if I ever need to fillet a fish or have a self defense need, this isn't going to make the grade, but for everyday items this is all it needs to be and nothing it doesn't.

It's hard to imagine a knife this small actually being useful, but it truly is. Weighing in at less than 1/2 ounce, you'll never know it's in your pocket. But when you go to use it, you can immediately tell it's very well-made, is literally razor sharp, and has just enough blade to get small jobs done. It's such a nice little knife that anyone who sees it will want one.

Spyderco really found a way to provide a small but useful tool in an incredibly tiny package. And its action is so smooth that you will find yourself opening and closing it just for fun.

I definitely recommend it. My only advice is to buy several, because they make ideal gifts for friends and family. And at less than $10 apiece, you can afford to give them to lots of people who will likely keep them (and use them) for many years to come.

i bought this thinking it was a bigger knife more like a swiss army knife and got it and saw it was an inch and a half long (i didnt read the specs). at first i was dissapointed because i spent $20 on a knife an inch and half long.i then put it on my keychain and still havent taken it off 3 months later.it still works perfectly. anyone looking for a small and sharp keychain pocket knife should get this
