SP138P: C138P GrassHopper SS
Non-locking folding knives aren't a new concept. They've been around for centuries without much change but continue selling among a sea of modern locking knives. The reason? While many knife buyers appreciate the traditional aspects of a non-locker, more want this type of knife because they live or work where laws prohibit carrying and using a locking pocketknife.

Spyderco perceived a gap between traditional slipjoints and modern locking folders and created a product line called SLIPITS. SLIPITS offer reliable and sophisticated non-locking folders that open with one hand, have a finger choil for comfort and safety and are conveniently accessible.

As the overall SLIPIT line expands, a subcategory of micro-sized SLIPITS with stainless steel handles is populating within and Spyderco calls them Bugs. The first Bug was matter-of-factly named, The Bug. Its non-locking blade is just barely over an inch long. Next up, a two-inch blade called the HoneyBee followed by the release of a larger one yet, The GrassHopper. Affable Bugs draw comments like "how cute" - a beneficial perception in a knife-cautious world but their size trumps the reality that they're serious business when it comes to cutting.

The GrassHopper's size is closest to that of a true penknife with its blade over two-inches. Its PlainEdge Cr13 stainless steel blade stays open when you're cutting, held by resistant pressure at the knife's pivot area. GrassHopper handles are chamfered with no squared-off edges to dig or bite into a gripping hand. The handle is also stainless steel with a laser engraved Spyderco bug and enough blank area for a small amount of engraving or customization as jewelry or a gift item. Handle lanyard-hole welcomes a chain for wear around a neck or a keychain.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Excellent for travel
I chose this knife for a trip to England, where locking knives are frowned upon. It was an excellent choice, kept its edge and was very easy to drop into a pocket and forget when not needed. Highly recommend Spyderco knives in general, and this model for travel! Doesn't open as fast as a larger model, but it may break in a little bit more with use...

Good little knife
I use the knife on my keychain. Very nice to always have on me. Not too big or small. Not sure about all but my only complaint is the centering is a little off. Great little knife

SpyderCo... but Only In Name.
I'm surprised this knife has the SpyderCo logo on it. I own other SpyderCo's and absolutely love them. This one however, is nothing special at all. It isn't big enough to cut anything significant, and doesn't grip very well. It doesn't lock, so I wouldn't feel safe about cutting anything, even if I had to.
