Re: Power Lock

That would be cool to see on the Lil’ Native. Overkill as far as lock strength on such a small folder but it still would be pretty cool.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I just broke down some cardboard boxes with my DFly 2. To be honest it got the job done but it wouldn’t be my first choice. A little small in the hand for thick, heavy duty cardboard. Something larger in the hand would have been better.

Re: Knife & Watch

Here is my daily go to the office watch. My lovely Wife bought it for me last year as a birthday present. I am sure everyone can identify the knife. I really like the G10 handle version. I have never been able to warm up to the FRN models. I had a Delica many years ago in FRN and I never did like th...

Re: Power Lock

I’d try a Millie, only because I want a BACKLOCK Military. I am not an engineer. I have trouble wrapping my head around how having more parts does not create weak points that could fail. The backlock is simple in that regard. It looks like the power lock doesn’t catch onto a notch in the blade. It ...

Re: A question to Mr. Glesser about "the Maxamet situation"

I must admit a Lil’ Native with Maxamet blade steel is very exciting.

https://i.imgur.com/OqrWbYT.jpg i'm a dude, but i like purple and that's a beautiful edc. i know it's been said a million times, but i really hope this purple g10 with dlc cruwear is the beginning of a series.

Re: Predictions for Reveal 6

More Maxamet (Sal, you promised!), preferably no LW... UKPK Maxamet would be amazing--even if it is LW. :) I hope for a Lil Native.... I also hope for another Lil’ Native but a sprint run using the backlock instead of the Compression lock. I like the DLT treatment of the PM2. Purple G-10 with a bla...

Re: Odd milestone - who took all the g10?

For what it is worth I really like G-10, micarta and aluminum/titanium for handle material. I REALLY dislike FRN; it just feels cheap to me.

Re: Now what?

If you have found “the one” then just enjoy using it and sell off the knives that are lacking in some way for you.
Be happy.

Would be cool if St. Nicks were the first ones to do an exclusive of the Lil Native Backlock! ;)
I expect it would be very popular.

Re: When Spyderco makes a Lil Native Sprint Run...

I would love to own a backlock Lil’ Native with that new purple G-10 like the stuff on the DLT exclusive PM2. As far as blade steel there are plenty that work for me. K390, S90V, etc.

Re: How important is scale color?

I like colors other than black for handle scales. For me I would absolutely love to see the Lil’ Native backlock in the purple G10. I wouldn’t even need an upgrade blade steel either. give it to me in S30v and I am happy. as long as it's dlc, i'm with you. that new pm2 looks so sweet. I can live wi...

Hi Skeeg,

We're working on several Bandanas now. I insisted that they be USA made with USA fabric. It took us a while to find a company that would make our oversize bandana in the US.

American made Spyderco bandana made with USA fabric? I am all over a couple of those!

Not sure if this has ever been a topic here, but I thought maybe posting here would get the idea rolling and maybe make it a reality one day.
As long as it is offered in the backlock version I would be all over it!

Re: K390 Lil Native backlock and UKPK

I would definitely buy a Lil’ native backlock with upgraded steel. I also would love to see it in a color other than black. My preference would be purple, blue or grey. I have no interest in the compression lock. I have a Lil’ Native in both locks and I much prefer the backlock!

Re: Lil Native and Cat

I love my Cat and would like to see some more options, like colors of G10. The Lil Native Backlock really needs some upgrades in steel and color choices as the inferior ( ;) ) comp lock version gets. K390 with dark grey G10 would be a good start. I have both of the Lil’ Native and I agree about the...
