This Ladybug knife has a flat ground ZDP-189 stainless steel blade with a plain edge and a satin finish. ZDP-189 is Japanese-manufactured stainless steel that has gained acclaim in the knife industry as one of the hardest, highest performing blade steels available on the market today. The handle is British Racing Green FRN.
The Ladybug is one of Spyderco’s smallest lightweight knives. It has an uncanny amount of usable cutting power and utility for a knife of its size and it's a blast to use. The fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is optimally textured and outfitted with the back lock mechanism for confidence inspiring lockup. The handle has a hole for a key ring or lanyard. When closed the Ladybug is about the same size as your car keys, which makes it an ideal key-chain carry knife that won't weigh you down.
I purchased a ZDP189 ladybug about 6 months ago and since having it, it has been extremely useful. Superior quality to any other keychain knife with a high end steel that stays sharp for a long long time! The great ergos of the knife makes it perform outside of its weight class! Highly recommended
Purchased the Ladybug ZDP version as a gift and had it engraved. Blade HQ did an excellent job engraving on this lil 2" blade. Don't ponder it, just get one.
Fast shipping and well packaged, the blade cames razer sharp. But there's some mystery oily thing all over the blade, very stinky, seems like some glue, really hard to be washed off....other than that, it's a nice little knife. The handle is hard to be cleaned due to its complex texture, but the blade works like a horse.
