3002 SpyderKey (Hummingbird)
SpyderKeys and Hummingbirds are the same model. The early ones were all serrated and the later ones partially serrated with a key ring. All had SS bolsters (except SS model), clip-point, locking blades and are made in Japan, boxed in velvet "jewelry" type boxes. Most of the knives are embellished with various materials. In addition three are produced as tie clips.
