The Spyderco Manbug ZDP-189 is a very compact knife that is still a worthy member of the Spyderco family. The blade, that is locked with a backlock, is definitely meant to be used. The ridges on the spine of the blade ensure that you have a lot of control over your movements.
This version of the Manbug has a blade made from exceptional steel: ZDP-189 steel. This powder steel with a high carbon content (3%) has a hardness of at least 64 HRC. This is extremely hard. The blade also retains its sharpness well. The downside of this type of steel is that is a little more difficult to sharpen. However, if you do it right you are left with a razor-sharp knife.
The ManBug is a real keychain pocket knife. Closed it is only 6.4 cm long. Smaller and lighter than the average car key. The materials used are perfect for an EDC-knife. The steel is of amazing quality and the FRN handle can withstand heat, cold, moisture and a lot of chemicals. Both left and right-handed users can easily use this knife. It truly is a friend to all.
