Spyderco Ladybug3 ZDP-189 with British Racing Green handle


Ladybugs have been on Spyderco's best-selling list for years. They are clip-less, designed for carrying on a keychain or with a thong or lanyard threaded through a hole at the handle's end.


ZDP-189 is Japanese-manufactured stainless blade steel that has recently gained acclaim in the knife industry as one of the hardest, highest performing blade steels available on the market today.


Using powdered metallurgy technology, 3% of ZDP-189's structure is made of pure carbon, making the steel harder and enhancing edge retention capacity. ZDP-189 is categorized as an exotic, high-performance blade steel which Spyderco offers as an option on several best-selling lightweight everyday-carry folders including the Ladybug3.


The handle is British Racing Green FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon), molded with Bi-Directional Texturing for slip-resistance while cutting. The PlainEdge blade is flat-ground from the spine to the cutting edge, offering abundant cutting power in a small folder.

    Nice knife.

    As expected with Spyderco, well made knife. However I don't think that it's worth the price tag. Small knife, big price¦
    Other than that, can easily be kept as sharp as a razor!

    great little knife.

    Great little knife, it comes razor sharp out of the box.
    It is so light, you wont notice it in your pocket.

    Great little pocket knife

    Posted by Keith on 25th Mar 2014

    Got one of these yesterday and it's an impressive little knife. Slightly smaller than what I was expecting but still fits comfortably in my hands. Extremely sharp out of the box.
    Only issue I have with it is a very small amount left/right play when the blade is in its locked position but it has adjustable torx screws so that should be easily resolved.

    no pocket clip

    Stays sharp for months with occasional use, easy to sharpen (compared to my other zdp henkel knife) using a 40 degree microbevel, especially with the spyderco sharpmaker as the back bevel is properly set to 15 degrees each side. I found the trick with zdp is not to raise a massive burr on each side when sharpening but keep it even and a very light touch on ceramic stones.
    The knife is light, usual top notch spyderco build quality, no blade play, good lockup, and good price for this size. the downfall is the lack of a pocket clip, its madness that spyderco left it off and the next model up (dragonfly) with a clip is slightly larger and double the price. for me it means most of the time it gets left at home although you can use the tec p7 clip.

    Practically perfect

    Ashamed to say that I didn't get this knife from Heinnie but nevertheless it's a brilliant, albeit tiny, EDC blade... and will not dull! Get one! or 2...
