Calypso Jr vs Native 5?

I saw a photo of the Calypso Jr on the forums a few days ago and fell in love instantly. Am considering buying one, but am hesitant to spend that much cash on something I've never gotten the chance to hold in my hand in person (especially since eBay sellers' return policies tend to be nonexistent). ...

Re: Name your own Sprint Run!

Anything that's all black, all over, is awesome: PE Native 5 with a black FRN handle and a DLC-coated blade. Calypso with a black FRN handle and a DLC-coated blade. Calypso Jr with a black FRN handle and a DLC-coated blade. Flat-ground PE Endura with a black FRN handle and a DLC-coated blade. Wharnc...

Re: What is the closest knife handle-wise to the Dragonfly 2?

I have very small hands and the handles on the Delica and the Native both suit me very well. I've only played with the Delica in a store, but the Native is my EDC and has been absolutely awesome. Either would probably be great for your daughter. Here's a pic to give you an idea of the size of my han...

Re: Dragging out an old favorite

Oh those are beautiful. If they were still in production, I probably would've bought one instead of my Native 5.

How are they in the hand, compared to the Native? They look about the same size and shape, except for the thumb ramp.

Re: K390 Endura?

FRN Police? Very interested. Never actually held one of the Police models, but I'd like to have a larger knife and I've spent a lot of time staring longingly at pictures of the Police online. And FRN is my preferred handle material...

If it comes with DLC coating, it'll be an instabuy.

Re: DLC Para 3 release?

Gorgeous, I love to see more Spydies coming out with DLC. It makes the whole knife so much more elegant-looking...

Re: Sal Here's An Idea

DLC only comes in black right? And I really don't want anything less durable than DLC on a blade. I agree with zhyla about the durability. If they can do DLC in different colors, though, I'd be all over that. Heck, if they made more knives available in the normal black DLC, I'd be all over that (es...

Not carried in my pocket, but the SOG mini pentagon is handy for letter-opening:

And another photo to compare the edge length:

Re: Plain edged Native with DLC?

Thanks for the replies guys. So it's not ruled out entirely, that's good to hear. Doesn't look like there are any specific plans to manufacture one (yet), so I guess I'll just have to keep a lookout.

Re: Boot Knives: Your views regarding them?

I don't have a "boot knife", per se... but I often wear my EDC (Native 5) in my boot, and before I got into Spyderco my main knife was a small dagger (SOG mini pentagon). Here's what I can say about the subject, coming from that perspective: Carrying knives in boots = awesome, my preferred way to ca...

Plain edged Native with DLC?

Love Spyderco knives, enjoy browsing the forums and checking out everyone's sick knife pics, finally made an account to join in on the fun ^^ Got a question: Are there any plans for a Native 5 with a plain edge and the DLC coated blade? I'm very fond of the model and would love to buy a PE version (...
