DescriptionSP137MOP: Mother of Pearl HoneyBeeSpyderco
This is a tiny knife with a 1-5/8" blade. Last year Spyderco started offering SLIPITS which are non-locking slip-joint knives. They have no locking mechanism holding the blade open, relying instead on resistant pressure at the pivot area when the blade is extended and being used. HoneyBees are part of the SLIPIT group.
The flat ground blade is 3Cr13MoV stainless steel available with a PlainEdge. Positioned on the end of the handle is a lanyard hole large enough to thread with a chain and be worn around the neck or slipped onto a key chain.Spyderco's Description:
Aerodynamically bumble bees shouldn't be able to fly. Too bad someone forgot to tell the bees that.
This knife defies both nature and expectation that something this small performs such a grand maneuver. Like bumblebees, Spyderco Bugs and HoneyBees perform the unexpected. Our smallest folders, they pack a stinging cutting clout in micro-sized SLIPITs.
Resistance pressure at the knife's pivot area holds the blade open and extended when cutting. Handles are flat with a small stainless surface ready for you to engrave, embellish or customize as jewelry or a gift item. Handle lanyard-hole accommodates a necklace-chain or keychain.
