Many knife buyers appreciate the traditional aspects of a non-locker,
want this type of knife because they live or work where laws prohibit
carrying and using a locking pocketknife. Spyderco perceived a gap
between traditional slipjoints and modern locking folders and created a
product line called SLIPITS. SLIPITS offer reliable and sophisticated
non-locking folders that open with one hand, have a finger choil for
comfort and safety and are conveniently accessible. As the overall
SLIPIT line expands, a subcategory of micro-sized SLIPITS with stainless
steel handles is populating within and Spyderco calls them Bugs. The
first Bug was matter-of-factly named, The Bug. Its non-locking blade is
just barely over an inch long. Next up, a two-inch blade called the
HoneyBee followed by the release of a larger one yet, The GrassHopper.
Affable Bugs draw comments like "how cute" - a beneficial perception in
a knife-cautious world but their size trumps the reality that they're
serious business when it comes to cutting.
C133 Bug: Aerodynamically the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly but
someone forgot to tell the bee that. It defies both nature and
expectations that something that small performs such a grand maneuver.
Like bumblebees, Spyderco Bugs perform unexpectedly.
