    Hey all, apologies if this has already been answered here but I couldn't find any info on this forum.
    I am looking at a keychain folder and really enjoy my Delica so was thinking about picking up a Ladybug 3... ....but then I saw the Manbug.
    Does anyone have any experience with both and have a preference?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have both and prefer the Manbug. The Manbug has a bit more belly, and has a better overall feel to me.

    Hey Brules, I've done quite a bit of research & you support it. Full flat grind plus a slightly larger blade, as well as comfortable well sized scales....I'm sold on a Manbug. Ordered one tonight from interstate (far more expensive than overseas but very little risk of seizure).

    Who did you buy off, may I ask? I'm also in Victoria.

    The Superblue and ZDP Ladybug is FFG. I don't own a Manbug but prefer the thinner blade and more acute point on the Lady.

    Hey Bob, I didn't want to run the gauntlet of customs (I had an Enlan seized last year) so I got it off evilbay. A bit more pricey but at least I'm guaranteed to receive it. The seller is located in Tazzie.

    ^^^^
    Yup Woodnutphil. I've been stalking a keychain spydie for a Iong time now & some funds became available.... You know how it goes. I could have taken my chances with a Us import but I can't afford to waste the $ If it is seized.

    I would choose the Ladybug, Manbug is a bit too big for my keychain. I carry at least 2 knives on me, if I can, anyway.
