Native 5 LW clip replacements?

Hey y'all,

Couldn't spot it on a previous thread and my googlefu is failing me - does anyone know if there are makers that make a clip for the native 5 lw? It seems to me like it's a unique screw configuration amongst spydies (but I could be wrong about that). Looking to spruce up my maxamet :cool:

Re: Hollow Grinds

I would love to see more high hollow grinds in the rotation, though I wonder what the cost premium increase would look like. However, to me, a hollow grind only makes sense on thicker blade stocks, and I tend to go for slim stock anyway (chaparral, watu, etc). Maybe a HHG native / chief could be rad...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Oh man, been fiending for this one for years, yay!!! Please don't hurt me if I chop this down to a 7" OAL. Looking at the specs the Swayback's bigger than I thought it would be. Kind of disappointed it doesn't have the 3" blade that I envisioned. Oh well! I'm still in I was thinking the same. Gonna...

Native Chief Rex45 Sprint Alert Thread

I didn't see an alert thread for this guy yet so wanted to start it up. Alert threads have always been way better for me to actually snag a sprint than in-stock notifications or blind luck. I haven't been able to pull the trigger on a chief yet, but the Native has been my #1 carry for the year and w...

Re: Sharpening a Knife

Hi Kat, The CBN stones are more for re-profiling the edge. Light strokes. I use them to make sure the two sides of the edge are met. It is possible that you can get some edges shaving sharp with just CBN. We have a new CBN flat stone with 400 mesh on one side and 1,000 mesh on the other side. I sha...

Re: Native CQI linerless/FRN blade swap?

I just did the swap, swapping both the blades and lockbars to keep each set paired. Came out very well! I needed to really press the G10 back together to eliminate any gap between the scales and the lockbar/backspacer, but once I got it fully seated it's good to go!

Re: Native CQI linerless/FRN blade swap?

I swapped a LW Native 5 Rex 45 with a G10 Rex 45 and it went fine. They're both pretty easy to assemble. I didn't notice any issues on either once I got them reassembled. (got a used Rex 45 G-10 which had a blade which had been used pretty rough already, and wanted to put that on the beater LW and ...

Re: Native 5 Lightweight Rex 45

Is it just my imagination, or is the FRN from Golden even sharper than the Seki and Taichung FRN? Boy this is some grippy stuff. Going to need a touch of sanding to save my pockets, but I love the light weight and durability of the material.

Re: Native CQI linerless/FRN blade swap?

Did you ever end up doing this? How did it go? Has anyone else done this? I'm considering swapping my rex45 lw with my linerless smooth forest green s90v. Any input y'all could share would be appreciated!

Bummed about the clip, but still a model I’ve wanted for years now. A deep carry from lynch will be better than the hourglass for this one.

Agreed - do we think it's the standard spoon clip though? In the reveal it looks to me like it might be slightly modified, but hard to tell from the image.

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Do any other Spyderco frame lock or liner lock models have the lock slip issue? None of mine do (I have several). I don't think there'll be anything to worry about but understand why your being cautious. The Spydiechef had a ton of reported issues with lockstick - not a safety issue like lock slip,...

Re: Going to the SpyOpera.

I wish it was a little slimmer stock than 3mm, but loving the looks of this guy!

Also I could be mistaken, buy isn't MAP 70% now? Making street price of $175?

Re: Appeal to bring back the stunning Titanium UK Pocket Knife

I am totally in on this one.

I'm fine with any steel, so long as the CQI from the HH model is included, those refinements really bumped the best slipjoint on the market up another notch.
