I don't have a Cricket to compare it to, but the CF Balance is in my watch pocket every single day. Great little knife. The design makes it a conversation piece whenever someone sees it in action.

I included this in the Calendar Contest, but thought I'd post it here as well.

I love SB patina.

Long time ago, before Sage came out, Sal talking about the idea commented that Sage (half hump) will be a hybrid of Native (no hump) and Caly3 (hump). So Native5 is like a father to Sage. Cool Info. In that case, we need a better family photo: http://i1327.photobucket.com/albums/u671/thurin_/P10700...

What I'd really like to see is a Native V with the CF and flat blade spine used on the Sage 1. The CF on the Sage1 is my favorite style of CF on the Spydies. That'd be cool on the Native. I'm curious to see what the Fluted CF is like. The other part of the Sage1 I'd like to see on the native is the...

Sage1 and Native5

I'm partial to the ~3" blade length. They fit in the pocket well and have enough blade length to keep me happy. Of my small collection of Spydies, the Sage1 has been my most carried knife. It shares pocket time mainly with a couple of Caly3s (CF and SB) and a PM2. I've wanted to get a Native5 for a ...

I asked the question when I was out at the SFO a while back. I think I got a flyer on it, but now I can't find it. The gist of it if I remember everything correctly is there are two levels of the Club: 1. Main knives only: you have to buy every new model that comes out. i.e. you'd buy the main PM2, ...

One last day one pic from me. I put it through its normal EDC paces today.

It feels a little smoother. The grind lines look to be the same fineness but the Native is more reflective.

thurin, Is it just me or is the blade grind finish on this knife much more fine than most satin knives? Do you have another satin blade you can compare it to? I've never seen a factory Spyderco grind that practically reflected an image of the trees above you like that. Also with the G10, is the tex...
