Spyderco’s Bug SS Slip Joint Knife may be thumb-sized, but it’s fully-functional, and priced at just $14.99. It’s currently the smallest knife in the company’s lineup, and measures in at just 1.625-inches when closed, or roughly the size of a paper clip. When opened, it’s still a svelte 2.875-inches, complete with a 1.3-inch 3Cr13 steel blade. There’s a lanyard hole on the bottom end of the handle to slip onto a keychain. Product page.

A razor sharp, go-anywhere slip-joint folder, the compact knife’s flat-ground blade is made of stainless steel that holds a keen edge over time, and the handle is also made of satin-finished stainless steel. The end of the handle has a lanyard hole large enough to accept a small chain or key ring. Part of Spyderco’s new SLIPITS line, the Bug features a non-locking, slip-joint design, with no locking mechanism holding the blade open. Instead, the blade is held open by resistant pressure at the pivot area when the blade is extended and being used. More information.
