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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Sharp: Be careful it will cut you like butter.
Light: You will not even feel it.
Just buy it!
1) If you toss it in a backpack you may lose it/forget it is there
2) If you carry that backpack often, you may even take it on a trip with you
3) If you happen to fly, the friendly TSA people will find/confiscate it for you
4) If they do that, you're likely going to get questioned and groped for the trouble
Trust me: nobody wants to go to third base with the TSA. So please: don't forget your knife - it could cost you your dignity.
