SPLYLS3HB: LYLS3HB Ladybug 3 Salt Hawkbill

The Hawkbill version of a classic knife. A high performance matter separator who's cutting ability shouldn't be underestimated or written off as just another keychain knife. Blade is thick from heel to tip. H-1 does something no other blade steel can, It remains 100% rust free and it actually holds a sharp cutting edge. Spyderco’s Salt Series offers a collection of H-1 folders and fixed blades with a newly added keychain-sized Salt. The Ladybug Salt is nearly as small as your car keys and carries just as easily. Its lightweight FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle is coated with Bi-Directional Texturing® for slip-resistant cutting. It comes in stand-out Marine Yellow and easy to spot if dropped in water or on the ground. The LYL is clip-less with a lanyard hole to string a keychain or lanyard through. Whether light or heavy cutting, the Ladybug Salt is a compact firecracker with explosive cutting ability in a small package that will never rust.

Terrific little life - but UNSAFE as received
This is a terrific keychain knife with a wonderfully sharp and well-shaped blade. The problem is the pivot screw is too loose and it opened in my pocket today. I'm going to try and adjust it by myself. It's a real problem with this design since so much of the blade is outside the body of the knife that it's especially easy to open in your pocket. It needs a little sliding bolt that can lock inplace when you're carrying it. Otherwise the blade must be made much more resistant to accidentally opening in your pocket. SPYDERCO this is a real safety issue and needs to be fixed. This is the only one of your knives that has had this problem.

Sailor's Knife?
As a fan of the Ladybug and H1 steel I had to have it. The hawkbill blade is a bit of a novelty for its size, but it should work just fine for any job within its size limits. A good small boater's pocket knife.

Best keychain knife ever!
It is amazingly durable, and useful. Weighs nothing and cuts everything. I will be ordering another because I gave it to a pal who was admiring it. Made him give me a buck so it wouldn't cut the friendship!
