    I want one of these for my keys, which blade shape would be best for the tasks you would use such a small knife for?

    Also bladeops did a video:

    I cant speak about the ladybug because I dont have one, but I do have a superblue manbug and it's a nice little knife (great for keychain)

    Of the two, I would prefer the Manbug for its size and the hawkbill for its utility.

    Have both, love both. If I had to pick one, I'd choose manbug for form factor

    I am probably getting the MB, but lack of point is on my mind. The LBHB is without peril for a knife its size. I lost mine on a beach trip and drove to the brick and mortar the day I got back and bought another. I will always have a LBHB Salt

    I value utility over size. My personal choice between the two would be for the hawkbill.

    Thanks for the responses. I really wish the Manbug had a real tip. The hawkbill blade shape seems like it would be more useful in a small knife.

    Edit: ended up ordering the LB Hawkbill
