Keep the backup. This knife is a perfect EDC IMO. Perfect size and materials

What does the new Native 5 Carbon Fiber feel like?

I know it's not on the street yet, but it appears to be the same stuff on the CF PM2 and a few others which I don't own. It doesn't look like it'll feel anywhere near the Taiwan stuff. Just wondering if it was grippy like G10. I just picked up the fluted titanium version (which is awesome btw!) but ...

Pics don't do these knives justice

Unfortunately there aren't many Spyderco dealers near me. I pretty much rely on pics and reviews for my next purchase. Many knives either click with me or not when I see the pics. I'm wondering now how many I would actually like if I got to see them in person. I'm sharing this now as I just held a f...

I know what you mean. Sometimes I'll spend x amount on a new Spydie and I know it's justified because it'll make the perfect EDC and get tons of use. It does for a while and then comes along another new must have blade. I look back at the one not being used now and think what a waste. I guess I try ...

The Native 3 and 4 were made in Japan and had VG-10 steel. The 4 had slick CF scales much like the Caly 3/3.5 CF. I'm not too interested in this CF Native 5, only because I have lots of peel ply CF already, and a Forum Native 5 (and I really like the dark green G-10). But, if I didn't have the Foru...

I see the Native 4 had a CF version but used VG10. I understood VG10 to be used on the Japanese models and not the US ones. Am I wrong? The Native 4 had the slick CF like on the Caly which is not my favorite. The CF on the Chap is killer.

Anyone else excited for the Native 5 Carbon Fiber??

I don't own any other Natives but this one seems like a must have.

Will the CF be like that on the Chap or the Caly? Or neither?

This will also be my first knife with S110v

Sorry if this has been covered already, I searched and didn't see anything.

Any ETA on a release?

Thanks!

IMHO, they are both well made knives and excellent slicers but, for me at least, there are a few minor nit-picks that favor the Chaparral. One being that the 420J2 outer layers of the laminated ZDP-819 blade do scratch easily. The Chaparral's twill CF does offer more traction than the matte CF on t...
