Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Hi Ugaarguy, The store didn't get its pieces. We made lotsa them and it's a standard in the line design. A design that I have been impressed with and had me rethinking the concept that new is better? This design is a basic "stick handle" and simple blade........but it's EDC performance is surprisin...

Re: Delica vs UKPK

Let's see if I can make something like a Dichotomous Key to see if we can answer this question, or perhaps suggest an alternative. 1)Do you like finger choils? 2)Do you like locking blades or are you just wanting to try out a slip joint? 2a) If you like locking blades, what's your preferred lock mec...

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

I do like LC200N's combination of corrosion resistance, edge retention, and ease of sharpening.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Currently in stock at GPKnives Thanks for the heads up. I was too slow, hoping I can grab this at DLT or knife center to get bonus points, but honestly I'm very excited (and a little surprised) that this sold so quick! Would love to get a Sprint on this guy, so strong sales are my best friend :D Wh...

Re: SPYDERCO @ WALMART??

I din't realize that the Native started off as a Walmart exclusive. It's pretty wild that it was originally intended to be a low cost, US made alternative to the Delica, and now it has tolerances of three ten-thousandths of an inch, that Sal says can only be done in the Golden (Colorado, USA, Earth)...

on the way. sal When is the next batch due? They're already sold out from the SFO in less than a day :( It's showing in stock now at the SFO. Since I don't get that sweet OpFocus discount, I'll be waiting for my usual dealers to get it at MAP. Can't wait to start seeing photos of this in the wild t...

I have been looking at a Mechforce EDC light. Is it worth the nearly $200 price tag??
ZeroAir seems to think so. He says they compare to much more expensive lights - https://zeroair.org/2019/01/04/mechforc ... ht-review/.

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

I agree that an frn chief would be the ideal for me I think. I am a fan of the feel of frn and frcp. But is that even on the horizon? I'd guess it's not on the horizon, because we don't even have a lightweight version of the Lil' Native in either lock yet. But, I'd also be surprised if a LW / FRN C...

Re: Native 5 Liners/Washers?

Although I am sure it works, I don't believe in break in. I have experienced all kinds of action levels, across all knifes, from all manufacturing facilities. If a knife is stiff or gritty, it will get at minimum pivot adjustment and/or a drop of oil. Next step is to completely take it appart. That...

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

Well, discussed a lot already ;) and I feel totally different (but of course there's no wrong or right here): I have L to XL hands, and for me the Delica does everything right in that size class: Very generous handle even for bigger hands, and a Ricasso I personally (and many others) can perfectly ...

Re: Native 5 Liners/Washers?

G10 vs FRN, other than the texture of the handles, they feel very similar when closed. There is a bigger balance difference is when they are open, as the G10 is heavier, and the G10 model has a metal back spacer. I have couple of each, and like others noted, there is no difference in the action bet...

Re: Lil Native Salt SE

The grip is more substantial with or without liners. It's closer to the Cold Steel Tuff Lite we both have. As you know, the Tuff Lite isn't larger than the DF2. But, the Tuff Lite significantly more substantial than the DF2, despite both being liner-less, plastic handle folders. When you use "toughn...

trick question. the correct answer is pacific salt se. :) Winner winner, chicken dinner. 😉 I don't like choils on anything larger than the Dragonfly at this point. It doesn't seem like any larger offering with one fits well when not using the choil and the cutting edge is unnecessarily distanced fr...

Re: Native 5 Liners/Washers?

The G10 REX45 sprint has bronze washers just like the other liner-less G10 N5s. My example of the REX45 G10 N5 is much smoother than my S30V N5 LW, and N5 Salt. I prefer the thread inserts for the clip screws on the liner-less G10 models over threading the clip screws into the liners on the older ve...

I totally forgot about that, it would definitely seem like a waste to make that blade solely for that item. I agree. I hope we get the Lil' Native Salt this summer. I'd be...
