Reality trumps size because Spyderco is serious when it comes to cutting.
Spyderco’s micro-sized slipjoints are fully functional, impressively sharp folding knives that are very much at home or on a keychain. The Trademark Round Holes are much more user friendly than traditional nail nicks. Now you can confidently carry this knife if you live or work where laws prohibit carrying and using a locking pocketknife.
The GrassHopper's size is closest to that of a true penknife with its blade over two-inches. Its Plain Edge 3Cr stainless steel blade stays open when you're cutting, held by resistant pressure at the knife's pivot area. The Slip Joint is a non-locking mechanism in which the blade is held open by spring pressure on a flat section on the back of the blade's tang. Slip joint knives do not have pocket clips. 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. Handle lanyard-hole welcomes a chain for wear around a neck or a keychain.
