Spyderco's Ladybug™ 3 knife.

Don’t let the size of Spyderco’s Ladybug 3 fool you. This “little big knife” is a fully functional tool scaled down to make transport easy. The Ladybug 3 is potent because of its hawkbill blade.

The Usual Suspect Network (USN) and Sypderco have teamed up to create an exclusive edition of the LadyBug 3 Hawkbill, which features “H-1® steel—an extraordinary nitrogen-based alloy that is 100% rustproof,” according to Spyderco. The blade is coated with black titanium carbonitride, making it more durable and less reflective. This coating is also on all other metal parts of the knife.

The knife is available with either a PlainEdge or fully serrated SpyderEdge cutting edge. The textured, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle comes in USN’s signature “toxic green” color.
