Spyderco LWDP3 Ladybug 3 Key Ring Knife 1.9" HAP40/SUS410 Satin Plain Blade, Mahogany Pakkawood Handles, KnifeCenter Exclusive
SPLWDP3: LWDP3 Ladybug 3 Pakkawood KnifeCenter Exclusive
The blade of this elite expression of the Spyderco Ladybug is crafted from three-layer laminated steel featuring a HAP40 core and SUS410 outer layers. HAP40 is a high-speed tool steel produced by the powder metallurgy process—an advanced manufacturing method that minimizes alloy segregation in the steel to ensure an extremely fine, uniform carbide structure. Its sophisticated alloy composition includes generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and cobalt to give it exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance—key qualities of a superior blade steel. To enhance the blade's strength and corrosion resistance, its high-performance HAP40 core is flanked by layers of SUS410 martensitic stainless steel. This unique three-layer construction can be seen clearly when the full-flat-ground blade is examined closely, as the transition between the core and outer layers are visible just above the cutting edge.
Equally unique, the handle of this distinctive knife features a stainless steel body flanked by scales machined from mahogany Pakkawood. Pakkawood combines the durability and stability of a phenolic laminate with the rich beauty of natural wood. All other features of the classic Ladybug are faithfully maintained to make this knife both a fully functional cutting tool and a work of art. A truly remarkable expression of the Ladybug design, this KnifeCenter Exclusive is destined to become a coveted collector's item.
