The Spyderco Bug Knife Is Perfect For Tiny Knife Fights


What possible use could you ever find for a bladed tool as tiny as the Spyderco Bug Knife? We’re not sure. But if you ever end up becoming Ant Man's newest supervillain or battling a robot cockroach, we guess this thing could end up being an appropriate weapon to wield. Well, when you run out of salt to load up on your Bug-a-Salt blaster, that is.

Described as “the smallest knife” in the company’s lineup, it’s so tiny you’ll probably lose it while digging for change if you keep it in a pants pocket. Fortunately, there’s a lanyard hole for inserting it into a key ring, letting you arm up with a very tiny knife by simply pulling out your keys.


The Spyderco Bug Knife measures just 1.625 inches long when closed and stretches to 2.875 inches with the blade folded out, so it's really small no matter how you slice it. It uses a slip-joint design that holds the blade open using the resistant pressure at the pivot area, rather than traditional backsprings, allowing it to achieve the minuscule dimensions. While the 1.3-inch knife blade may not sound much, the flat-ground blade is razor sharp, so you can use it to slice cheese, donuts, or that Snickers bar you have lying around on your desk at work. Construction is 3Cr13 stainless steel for the blade and satin-finished stainless steel for the handle.

Available now, the Spyderco Bug Knife is priced at $19.95.

    I guess this would be just the weapon to gain the ‘upper-hand’ in a hand to hand combat or knife fight with an insect of very small size, huh? It looks pretty neat, but honestly very easy to lose. Also, ‘discreet’ weapons like this, if absorbed through arrests or frisks on the streets in many states come off with a ‘malicious’ purpose. Although this is a very controversial prospective, surely you can appreciate the limited purposes such a ‘discreet’ weapon would serve. I do however think this would be pretty useful for someone such as an electrician–not to sure about that considering it’s made out of metal that could potentially otherwise conduct and deliver electricity in an unsafe manner. I could definitely see this being of great usage out on the battle-field though, for small bodily incisions, and even necessary equipment modifications, incisions, or even maintenance. The price seems appropriate, but at the same time this really just doesn’t seem like a practical investment to me. Thoughts?
