A nice improvement on the Ladybug.Some people complained that the Ladybug had a weak lockup and would wiggle after being used a lot. Sal made the Manbug have a thicker blade, eliminating this issue. It has a bigger, more ergonomic handle and screw construction. It also sports a slightly larger hole and different blade shape. The belly on the Manbug is what's going to handle 80% of the tasks you throw at it. This leaves the (strong) tip sharp for more delicate operations.On the downside this adds weight. How much? 1 gram. Some people have complained that this makes it worse than the Ladybug, which does not make any sense in the real world.Overall I think this is one of Spyderco's best knives. It is a little big for a keychain, but it's perfect for a shirt pocket or a purse. Unfortunately, the price is a little high and I hope it will at least drop to match the price of the Ladybug.
