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.

    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 !!

    Perfect

    Posted by Richard likes pocket knives on 13th Jun 2020

    I bought this to replace my Buck 351 with a very small UK legal knife. I don't carry large or aggressive knives out of the house but like a little handy blade for cutting boxes and string etc. This could not be more perfect as a replacement for my little Buck that came originally part of a presentation box. The 351 is a tiny lock blade and this Grasshopper is the only thing I could ever image replacing it. It's beautifully milled, smooth, sharp, small and pocket friendly. If you get one very small UK legal knife, get this.

    Great little knife

    Posted by jez on 14th Mar 2020

    This is a great little knife, very sharp out of the box, and even the box is high quality, I have other spiderco knives all much larger and they can all be opened with one hand, not so this one, it is just too small to get any leverage with your thumb. But that doesn't matter it is easy enough to open with two hands. Strong enough for jobs larger than it's size suggests. Hennie's service is of course second to none and I have been a customer for years.

    Reet petite

    Posted by Simon on 26th Nov 2019

    I've had one of these jangling about on my keyring for years now, next to a Leatherman Micra, and the handle has acquired a sort of stonewash finish as opposed to the original brushed steel look, but it's not displeasing. The blade and slip joint are still perfect, and I use this knife often enough for everyday tasks to make carrying it around seem worthwhile. I prefer the Grasshopper to the Bug or Honeybee, which both seem too small to be useful, whereas the Grasshopper is a small but useful size, and yes, it looks like a real knife because it is one, so if you're nervous about frightening people by whipping it out in public, you should get a small Victorinox or similar. But if you feel like you need a more serious but still UK-friendly EDC carry, the Grasshopper is a very good option.

    Brilliant

    Posted by A.M. on 20th Mar 2018

    Simple knife. Big and comfortable enough to use as an EDC. Typical Spyderco shaving sharp edge that holds well and sharpens well. The box it comes in even makes a nice little display. No complaints.

    Nice little knife but. ......

    Posted by Charles on 11th Oct 2017

    I knew this knife was small and that's what I wanted. It turned out to be very slightly smaller than expected, and only just big enough to be practical for light duties such as parcel opening, string cutting, pencil sharpening and so forth. That said, it's quite well made and nicely finished for the money. It's just a shame that it wasn't a fraction larger which would then make it truly practical. The one really outstanding aspect of this little knife is the sharpness of the blade straight from the box. Others have commented on this but I've often been disappointed and it seems that other people's ideas of sharp is somewhat different to mine. Not in this case. It really is wickedly sharp and an example of what can be achieved on a factory edge. Some very expensive knives aren't this sharp! I suspect that the steel may not hold this edge for too long but it should be easy enough to resharpen. Great service from HH again. Sometimes I wish they weren't so good then I'd stop spending my money with them. Just ordered a Puma IP off them. :)
