    I have Manbug G10 - do I need Jester?

    I love the blade shape of the Jester. Just find it so sexy. I have the manbug g10 and love it. There's a site w the jester g10 for $100+. It's pricey but super sexy. Do I need it?!? Lol

    I want to agree and say yes, but that is a lot of money for a Jester. At least to me. I think I paid 50 for mine NIB last year.

    I like the Ladybug and LOVE the Jester... The G-10 version is one of the sweetest watch-pocket carries that Spyderco makes. I would say you needs it, but only if you don't have a G-10 Manbug. It's not about the money or availability for me, it's about the shape of the spine. They could make the handle from recycled cow dung with fiber mix and I would buy one.

    It's less tall than a Manbug...closer in height to a Ladybug (And same width and length). It's also a bit heavier than the FRN Ladybug, and MUCH more solid feeling. And the blade shape and jimping at the end of the blade are absolutely perfect on a knife this size. I'm convinced that the G10 Jester is the best keychain knife in the world right now...I've certainly never come across better. I say "absolutely", but I'm obviously biased and an enabler to boot haha.

    Depends on how much you want a great little knife. I like the Jester spine enough that I ground the blade on my zdp Manbug to a similar shape. Do you have a Dremel? The last Jester is a sprint run so consider how much that matters to you.

    My EDC for a while. Stretch with carbon fiber handle, Chaparral 2, Dragonfly 2 with kirinite MOP handle, Manbug with bolster/red bone handle. Super blue/420J1 blades on all three (except Chaparral).

    I have used it for that in the past. It works ok as long as the steak isn't too thick.

    What is the point of the jimping towards the tip of the blade?

    ^^^

    By placing your finger's tip there you'll achieve an unbelievable control over the tip of the blade, taking a very detailed cutting to a whole new level.
    Stay Sharp!

    Everybody who has manbug, needs Jester. But if you have Jester, you do not need manbug.
    Keep your eyes open on the secondary market and you will be able to find it.

    To piggyback on Jerry's thread. Do I need a Superblue Manbug if I already have the Ladybug? I don't see the need just going by the numbers.
