Re: Native 5 in the desert

Hah, it sort of does. Thanks :cool: :spyder: Some more photos from that trip. The wash was flooded from the monsoons so I got a couple good shots of the knife by the water. https://i.imgur.com/GEqiD7M.jpg https://i.imgur.com/SJBRGSV.jpg https://i.imgur.com/OpPFFpC.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iRZsm7E.jpg

Re: How have you preferences changed over the years?

As a kid I was into fixed-blade daggers, combo edges, and anything that looked really "mall-ninja". I thought full-flat grinds looked cheap, and disliked folding knives. These days I love the cutting abilities of a full-flat grind, prefer knives that are either full-serrated or full-plain rather tha...

Native 5 in the desert

Been taking lots of pics of my knives lately for the Calendar contest. Still haven't decided which photo to use as my entry... Here's some of the best ones from earlier today. https://i.imgur.com/bhH8Z2t.jpg https://i.imgur.com/qeISqls.jpg https://i.imgur.com/BeFCoIG.jpg https://i.imgur.com/OhVcAIw....

Re: Suggestions for new Lightweight models?

Native 5 LW: - orange or lime green translucent frcp handles - black hardware and black deep carry wire clip - back lock (compression lock works for me as well) - black blade (hap40 or cts-xhp or 110 steel) It wouldn't hurt my feelings if they gave the Stretch 2 this treatment as well. I've got it ...

Re: Color Poll for the Chaparral Light Weight

My color preferences, from least-wanted to most-wanted: 3. burgundy 2. brown (a shade of light beige/tan would be classy and nice) 1. "other": I'd love to see this knife with a black blade and beige/brown handle. That'd be my top choice. Black blades always make knives so much more classy and discre...

Re: Why does Spyderco not make more autos?

I love living in Arizona. There's almost no anti-knife laws here. The only law I can think of goes like this: if you're under 21, the only kind of knife you're allowed to conceal-carry is a folding pocketknife. Over 21 you can do whatever the heck you like. :cool:

Agreed. It's real irritating on smaller screens especially.

Never seen the Perrin PPT before, but it's gorgeous and I might have to add it to my "to buy" list :spyder: How's the size/ergos compared to the Native 5?

Re: Calypso Jr vs Native 5?

Many thanks to AlwaysTomboy and Nate for the comparison photos, it's great to see the two knives next to each other. I'm happy to see that the handles are shaped very similar, and that people who like the Native's handle also tend to like the Calypso's handle. Thanks also for everyone who's contribu...

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: 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...
