We have taken our best selling keychain-sized
knife, the Ladybug, and paired it with a unique Hawkbill blade. As with all our knives, we manufacture the
Ladybug Hawkbill with the best available materials and focus our efforts on
reliable high performance, ergonomics and safety.
Sometimes small things hold great
power. An atom, kindness and babies for
example. Spyderco's smallest locking
folder is a Ladybug, yet its small size contradicts its cutting capability. In Spyderco's 2009-2010 product line you'll
find a Ladybug Hawkbill Sprint Run. By
definition, a Sprint Run is a limited-number, limited-time, release of a
Spyderco knife variation or the short-term rebirth of a past discontinued
The Ladybug's Hawkbill blade curves
itself around what you're cutting. Its
unique shape draws the object being cut close and continuously in contact with
the sharp edge. Also the curved tip
hooks and holds the cut item from sliding off the blade's tip while you're slicing. Hawkbills are reliable and stable for
downward or pulling-away-from-you cuts. Combining this particular blade shape with the Ladybug handle turns a small
and innocuous keychain-sized knife into a ferocious cutting tool.
Molded into the FRN (fiberglass
reinforced nylon) handle is Volcano Grip' texturing and angles on the
handle's underside support ergonomically gripping the knife. SpyderEdge serrations run the full length of
the VG-10 blade that is hollow-ground with slip-resistant spine jimping. Since
the knife is small, positioning of the Spyderco Round Hole relative to the blade
pivot, and the placement of the back-lock are precisely executed for smooth single-hand
open/close. Ladybugs are clipless with a
lanyard hole in the handle for a keychain or thong.
Many find a Ladybug on a keychain or in a pocket becomes a necessary,
and relied upon, everyday cutting tool. We're confident you'll find this to be just tha.
