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: Native 5 LW - nice surprise

I would like to clarify. When I said that I get that all the time, I meant that once I touch up my knives with an ultra fine stone or strop, I develop that look. I have never recieved a brand new knife that looks like that.

Re: Native 5 LW - nice surprise

Looks like it may have been touched up, or at minimum stropped. I get that all the time with my knives.

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

i wish we could have something shaped like the front half of the caribbean handle and the back half of the manix handle. my resilience is the closest i’ve seen to this compromise and it’s much nicer in pocket than any knife i have with a pinky hook. i know it probably seems silly, but it’s literall...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

Everytime I think about it, I am still bewildered about all the size options, and the fact that I have the range of knifes I do. Most of my adult life I had one folder; well, couple of knives of the same size. And initially I acquired some smaller knives, the likes of Native and Delica. But like som...

Re: Spyderco Photo of the Week Contest!

If the judge sees a pic worthy of winning the contest, should not matter how active the user is. Just happens that it didn't pan out this time ;)

Re: Native 5 Lightweight Rex 45

Them Golden lockbacks!

I was stuck on the Native Cruwear when I first got it. Same with the M4. I have a feeling this will be daily for a while.

I wonder what you might have deleted here... :rolleyes: :p
At the time, nothing to contribute :p

But I did look at my M4 and XHP models, and they are very close to same. XHP has been sharpened more, so a bit shorter.

Re: REX 45 Chief ??

I was concerned that the Chief wouldn't make it out of the base model. Really looking forward to this one.

Re: Fastest selling Sprint knife?

For a sprint, Rex 45 PM2 was a chase, if I remember. Kept trickling in to dealers, and disappearing just as fast.

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

I used the Police model in mid 90's, on a loan for a backpacking trip. Litte did I know that some 20 years later I would be here.

I purchased my first Spyderco, all black S30V PM2, late 2015 early 2016? Native 5 LW and Manix 2 LW shortly after; possibly as I was wating for the PM2 to arrive?

Re: Handle scale color and material

What is the definition of a collector; what's the cutoff in count? Asking for a friend :D In terms of use, I use all my knives. Hard use depends on the knife. Although there are times when one that shouldn't, gets used in such way. Heavy use, on the other hand, can be more easily defined by how ofte...
