Spyderco goes xxxtra tiny with the Bug and HoneyBee
Rumor has it that Spyderco cranked out a bunch of their tiny slipjoint miniature "Bug" knives for last year's Blade Show, or some other knife event. Rumor also has it that these little, yet usable Spydies were incredibly popular. They're Chinese made and use some variation or other or an inexpensive CrMo stainless. Best of all, at good knife retail sites you can find them for about $8.00
The HoneyBee is the just slightly newer and slightly larger brother of the Bug knife
length overall 3 5/8 in. (the original Bug is 2 7/8")
blade length 1 5/8 in.
While neither lil' knife locks, the are both fully functional and seem to be getting decent reviews for go-anywhere keychain or coin pocket knives, or the type of knife that's so tiny, it's almost invisible when used responsibly in public.
Well, I can't resist a Spyderco (even if it's miniscule) for under $10.00 USD. Look for an upcoming review of either the Bug, the HoneyBee, or maybe both, right here.
