Customer Reviews

A better Manbug, for less money
William M. on Nov 12, 2021

Seriously, this is very similar the size and shape of the nifty Manbug in their Spyderco line up. A little heavier since it has steel liners. Much more usable blade length than the Spyderco Lady Bug and Byrd Finch without adding any additional length to the handle - accomplished by having less choil and a longer edge. Fit and finish are much better than some other Byrd offerings which scream “our cheap line” - this could easily be sold in their Spyderco economy line (difference is, length of warranty and free resharpening).

Sweet little 5th-pocket or keychain knife
David H. on Oct 14, 2020

So, it's a bit smaller than a dragonfly, but has G-10 scales (a plus over FRN in my book), it's also a bit lighter. And it's $25 less. That's a win in my book, because this thing has awesome fit and finish, snaps open and closed with a satisfying schnick.
