Photo Gallery: Spyderco Super Blue Manbug

The Ladybug was my first Spyderco pocket knife. I was used to carrying something small in my pocket for opening packages and such, and the Ladybug was a good replacement for the Cutco that I lost. I was instantly hooked on Spyderco, and moved up the food chain to the Dragonfly, Delica, etc., and ended up giving away my Ladybug to my sister.

But I missed it every once in a while. Because there are times where it's not practical, appropriate, or even legal to carry a larger knife. My Victorinox Executive is a great little knife for most of those times, but there are times that I need a small locking knife.

The Manbug is a tiny bit larger than the Ladybug, so I finally bought one a few months back and did a review of it here. And then I discovered their Super Blue steel sprint runs. This is a special kind of Japanese steel that basically combines the ancient art of making swords with modern industrial techniques--the best of both worlds. It's also non-stainless and can rust, just like my Moras. These super blue models also feature partially-laminated blades, and you can see the lamination line in the photos below.

I haven't decided if I'm going to use this one. Only 1,200 were made, but it's so tempting to try out the steel. I have a Super Blue Stretch on the way.
