Spyderco CountyComm Exclusive Tan Ladybug 3 & Victorinox Classic

April 27, 2018

I have a fascination with the Spyderco Ladybug series, and Spyderco keeps bringing out new variations to add to my collection. This tan version in H1 was an exclusive for CountyComm that came out a few years ago. I finally found the right Victorinox Classic SD to mate it to. This combo rides in my watchpocket and fulfill all my ‘tool’ needs in everyday life. The Ladybug is both a back-up knife or when I want to demonstrate the value of a good knife to a nervous non-knife person.

This particular combo will make a nice summer carry companion!

Spyderco 2017 Production Sample – Manbug Sheepfoot

March 11, 2017

I’m a sucker for Ladybugs, Jesters and the Manbug. So this salt version of the Manbug with a sheepfoot blade is a no-brainer. The tag at the meet said Manbug Sheepfoot, so I’m going with that, even though the catalog lists it as both the Manbug Salt and Manbug Rescue Salt. Whatever the name, this little folder is a must-have for me!

Overall Length:  11,2 cm / 4.40  inches
Blade Length: 4,8 cm / 1.90 inches
Blade Thickness: 2,5 mm / 0.09 inches
Weight: 23 grams / 0.8 ounces

Spyderco 2017 Production Sample – Fish Hunter

March 8, 2017

The Fish Hunter was apparently designed for deep-sea divers who spearfish under water. In case the fish isn’t completely ‘out’, you could use the Fish Hunter to ‘brain’ the fish. The double ground blade certainly looked very impressive. The top edge is ground but not sharpened. I did not see a sheath for the Fish Hunter at the meet, but I would guess that the final production version will sport an Aqua Salt-style sheath.

Overall Length:  22,7 cm / 8.94 inches
Blade Length: 11,2 cm / 4.39 inches
Blade Thickness: 3 mm / 0.11 inches
Weight: 116 grams / 4.10 ounces

Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Ed Schempp Rock Salt

March 15, 2016

The Rock Salt is back, for a sprint run. To me, this is a familiar design and I like the bright orange scales. I can imagine this sprint run would make for a cool knife option in a bugout bag or survival kit, with its rustproof steel and bright orange handle.










Overall Length: 31,1 cm / 12.24 inches
Blade Length: 17,1 cm / 6.73 inches
Blade Thickness: 3 mm / 0.11 inches
Weight: 258 grams / 9.1 ounces
