Extremely lightweight with a sub-2 inch blade, the Ladybug can mostly go where you do. Perfect for the key chain or purse. Brand new directly from Spyderco, Inc.
The Blade: Flat ground blade utilizes a HAP40/SUS 410 stainless laminate. Created using the powdered metallurgy process, HAP40 possesses outstanding toughness and high abrasion resistance. The core is bound by layers of SUS 410 martensitic stainless steel. The transition between the core and outer layers is visible just above the blade's cutting edge.
The Handle: Traditional FRN with bi-directional texturing Spyderco is so well-known for done in a handsome Burnt Orange coloring. Equipped with lock back mechanism and lanyard hole. Lanyard hole allows for easy attachment to a key chain or zipper pull.
About HAP40 Tool Steel: HAP40 contains generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt. This combination creates exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance. Both of which are key qualities of a superior blade steel. However, its relatively low chromium content (4.0%) makes it susceptible to corrosion. Regular maintenance and oil is required.
