Looks like CutleryShoppe and Knifeworks have some in stock.

Aww its a cute little fella :D Shorter than a manbug, though I wouldn't necessarily say 'smaller'. I'm curious how it will be for left handed carry.

I'm pretty terrible with my left hand but I can get my thumb past the lock bar and open it one handed, not sure I could close it with my left without some practice. With the right it's very easy to thumb flick open and close one handed. My only concern is the lock bar relief, the material is very thin so it will be interesting to see how it holds up over time.

Very thin behind the lockbar relief, so be gentle :)

That IS thin. It's titanium though so I think it will be ok.

Just ordered one. Looks like the perfect coin pocket backup!

I like the texturing on the pivot pin and lock tab.

Finally got mine. It's even smaller in person :D If anything the pics make it look bigger.

I love it.

Is the lock face heat treated in any way?

anyone know if those clip screws are T6? havent had time to check yet.

If anyone's curious it can indeed be operated left handed. Not as easy as a backlock, but absolutely doable. (for my hands anyways ;) )

Im liking this more than I thought I would. Especially the finger grooves on the blade. You can get a few different and useful grips with it. Wish my camera was working, I'd post a pic of it next to my dragonfly. It's so tiny!

It's got an almost mirror finish too, a slight stonewash.

Great little box opener :D

Got this little guy today. Thanks Spyderco for putting a clip on this knife! Much appreciated for women's pockets! Here's some comparison pics with other small spydies

Wow, those comparo pics really helped me understand the size of it. Thank you! Looking forward to your impressions.

Can't get into this one. Just reminds me of an ugly, extremely overpriced box cutter.

Yeah it's tiny for sure. I wasn't very interested in it at first but I'll probably end up with one at some point just for the fun factor.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
