Re: Abel Native Exclusive

I'm interested in buying one but was waiting to see a review first. Since none are posted I called Abelreels.com and got answers from them. This is what he told me about the process: 1. Spyderco sent blank Native scales to Abel 2. Abel did the artistic anodizing and returns completed scales to Spyde...

Re: Abel Native Exclusive

---A $300 trout or bonefish knife is no big deal.----

It's NOT $300......It's actually $495 ++ 14.61 shipping = TOTAL $ 509.61

Just wanted to correct the factual record.

If it was only $300, I might buy one.

Re: Abel Native Exclusive

Since these Native Abel knives were shipped to customers in February......I have not seen a single review of them either on here or on Abelreels.com site.

I wonder why that is !!??

None sold !!??

Re: I never want to hear about "chippy" steel ever again

Not sure why the need to cut the cardboard at all? Just slice the tape at the joint like everyone else does. My keys do this job.

Re: Customer Service Response Time

What has been your experience in getting email responses from customer service? Going on 3 days without a response. Am I being impatient? Hey, SpyderSeth: I checked with W&R and they're caught up on e-mail. I'm not sure which e-mail address you sent your message to but it would seem that your e-mai...

Re: Abel Native Exclusive

Hello all, I work at Abel Reels, and wanted to clear up some confusion I've seen on the forums. ... The process can take up to 4 to 12 labor hours to complete per product, depending on the graphic. Recreating artwork in metal often takes longer than the original artwork takes to create. The cost is...

Re: New reveal policy: is it the end of an era?

Hi Elduderino, I must say I agree with your observations. As you stated, often a few bad apples do ruin the barrel. It's happened more than once as I've watched over the years. Part of life I guess. We'll have to watch the process develop as we more forward. You can be sure that we still work for t...

Counterfeit shouldn't matter? if the customer is paying for the parts?
"Counterfeit" does matter if the parts you receive DON'T FIT !!!

Abel Native5

I'm a collector of Spyderco for years and have dozens. I have several Natives and already have purchased the Native Salt for $120.

But, there is NO WAY I'm going to pay $495 for a Native with painted fish scale handles sponsored by Abel !!!!

The price is outrageous and nothing short of gouging.
