I purchased a lightweight Native about 2 months ago and it's now my favorite knife. The handle is designed well because it's more ergonomic and slip resistant than most other Spyderco knives. It is versatile and durable for a lightweight and easy to carry knife. It seems well balanced and operates w...

I was wondering why my CPM 440V blade was not getting any sharper after using a Lansky Deluxe knife sharpening set. As it turns out, I was committing a very basic error. I took a broad point Sharpie marker and marked the bevel to the edge. After a few strokes, it was obvious that I wasn't sharpening...

I have already tried Ballistol but forgot to mention it- great stuff in terms of safety because I think it's primary active ingredient is mineral oil, if I interpreted the MSDS that came with the oil properly. It worked OK, but did not last as long as the synthetic oil in this application. As far as...

I do open my Native by pinching the hole between the thumb & forefinger (with the middle finger under the blade's thumbgrip), with the blade pointing up. A quick flip of the wrist opens the blade quickly & safely! The only thing is that the knife has to be broken in (meaning that the blade swivels w...

I am concerned about a total ban on knives on aircraft. Usually the passengers outnumber the hijackers, and the hijackers may carry plastic or ceramic knives that are difficult to detect by conventional means. Therefore, a ban will certainly disarm an honest passenger. Only armed plainclothes police...
