The Spyderco Grasshopper is one of the best selling UK-friendly carry knives that we sell here at Heinnie Haynes®.


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 pocket knife. 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.

The GrassHopper’s size is closest to that of a true penknife with its blade over two-inches. Its PlainEdge 8Cr13mov 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.

    Great little knife.

    Posted by Felly Da! on 3rd May 2021

    My first Spyderco ... I get right away why these are SO popular ... Just a great performer. Carried mine for a month and use it for a park whittle - for a pocket knife it's been an excellent little tool for me. Blade is like a Scalpel and holds it's edge for a respectable time. Ergos are excellent for short bursts - i find the end of the handle is a hotspot for longer uses, but that's me going beyond what the knife is intended for. Great addition for the ever expanding collection. Thanks v much.

    First Spyderco

    Posted by Steve Churchill on 5th Oct 2020

    Having built up a modest collection of slipjoints I noticed I appeared to missing a Spyderco. I thought Id enter the water at the cheaper end but wanted something that would be practical and opted for the Grasshopper. Regardless of the knife's small size the blade is of reasonable length. It is now made from Sandvik 12C27, not the 8Cr13MoV as stated in the specification, and takes on a great edge. Despite its small size it is quite capable or tearing down larger boxes. It is small enough to be carried in the watch pocket of my jeans, rather than having to delve in the main pocket. The lanyard hole with a snake knot fob easy to pull out. I liked it so much I ordered the UP PK Drop Point.

    Not impressed.

    Posted by Wike on 21st Sep 2020

    Sharp and well finished but the handle didn,t suit my medium size hand. Gave it to a friend who collects as new boxed knives and that,s the best place for it as far as I,m concerned. For the same price you can buy both the Ruike S11 and a Roughrider 221 whiich are excellent.

    Very Overpriced

    Posted by Mark R on 8th Sep 2020

    To be very honest, I am disappointed with the grasshopper. Yes, I knew it was a small knife, but I expected more for the price. Less sharp edges on the finish would have been nice too. For almost the same money, and mainly less, I could by a Boker Tech Tool of far superior quality. If the rest of the range is similarly overpriced, maybe I should just overlook this brand altogether?

    Great EDC

    Posted by MushroomMan on 16th Aug 2020

    Wanted a knife to keep on van keys in case I needed a seat belt cutter. Don't really trust the concealed blade type. This is excellent, razor sharp, except with fat fingers, single handed opening is a bit iffy. Solution.... put a zip tie through the blade hole. Easy peasy one hander.......Usual fast delivery !!
