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.

    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. :)

    Another great UK legal budget friendly knife

    Posted by Ryan on 11th Nov 2016

    A step up in steel quality from the Bug & Honeybee, nice size, solid construction. Mine sits in a jacket pocket.

    Great little knife

    Posted by Matt on 4th Nov 2016

    My second purchase from Hennie and definitely won't be the last. Received again in super quick time! It's a great put in your pocket and forget knife, incredibly sharp out of the box, very well made and a useable size. If it had a pocket clip I'd say it was perfect. Have my eyes set on the tenacious next.

    Good quality, cheap enough

    Posted by Reddy Redmonder on 5th Oct 2016

    As usual HH delivered next day when I bought my Grasshopper. Smart little knife razor sharp out of the box and kept a good edge, until I lost it and had to buy another! This one lived on a mini carabineer on my keys, until I lost that as well. I'm not ideally suited to very small knives so my EDC, letter opener etc is now a Boker Magnum Flatty which also came next day and scores 5*!

    Fantastic, small knife but not too small

    Posted by Geks on 13th Jul 2016

    Was torn between the 3 small Spydercos but went for the largest. Not disappointed. The knife arrived truly razor sharp out of the box (within a couple of days of purchase!). It is absolutely beautiful and for the size seems really sturdy. Has a nice firm spring, no accidental closing here. I'm going to be carrying this everyday from now on. It's not too small for everyday use but is small enough to be totally inoffensive for EDC.

    Great buy

    Posted by Matty on 10th Mar 2016

    Ordered late afternoon, and received the next morning. Top marks to HH again. Now to the knife. For £20 notes, you can't go wrong. Ideal size to put on your key ring, and not so small to be a unusable novelty. Plus its a Spydy!

    great quality......for price........??? hmmmm

    Posted by bee blue on 11th Dec 2015

    for £23 (TOTAL). I think I would save more money to get a full scale handle....Very sharp knife with very sturdy 1 piece construction, so easy to cut self or have the blade close on your finger. You'd have much better control with a knife of a full scale handle
