Specs at a glance: Stainless Steel handle - Slipjoint - 3.3 cm blade - 12 grams - 3Cr stainless steel Blade - keychain hole

Small, sleek and adaptable - the Spyderco Bug takes the best qualities of nature's little beasts and forges them into a tiny tool that is reliable and useful in a multitude of situations. The Bug is the smallest slipjoint tool made by Spyderco. Engineered under their 'Slip-it' design, the Bug is a non-locking slip-joint tool that relies on pressure when the tool is in use. This makes it legal in most countries and handy for tasks where you need quick access to a cutting tool.

The blade is flat ground and is made of 3Cr13 stainless steel, which is matched by the stainless steel handle - left almost bare for room to engrave or embellish. The handle features a Spyderco trademark round hole instead of a thumb nick to open the blade. It also features a lanyard hole meaning you can wear your bug on a keychain or as a necklace.

The Bug is tiny but effective. It measures 4 cm closed and 7 cm open, making it the smallest tool Spyderco produce. However, the extremely sharp blade is tough and can handle loads of household and work-related tasks such as opening parcels, cutting rope or slicing through paper. The Spyderco Bug is a tiny yet gorgeous tool that'll make you as happy just from holding it as from using it. Hang it from a keychain, throw it in your pocket or keep it nearby for access to a stunning small tool that complies to UK tool law.

small and sharp

This a small, sharp and well made tool. I carry mine attached to a fire steel and in my cooking pot. Handy for food preparation, (cutting open dehydrated ration packs), and other small duties around camp. I have even used it to make tent pegs.
