Designer

History, mentionings from the forums etc.

Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

"If your male ego makes carrying a Ladybug difficult—or you’re looking for a knife that’s just a little bigger—the Manbug is for you. The same compact size as its lady counterpart, the Manbug features a broader, flat-ground blade for improved edge geometry and strategically placed jimping for positive control. It is available in two versions: a classic bolstered design with gray G-10 scales and a lightweight version with textured FRN handle. Clipless and designed for carry in the pocket, the Manbug also features a lanyard hole for easy attachment to a fob or keychain." G-10 Manbug [2]
