Re: Lil Native just keeps getting better

Love it. I have 4 other natives and while the little native is smaller than I usually carry it is almost always enough for the task. I also like how it is made, it is like an old steel dive watch, solid and well fit together. I do usually carry the regular size natives but I do often carry the lil n...

Re: Seriously considering a native salt how's everyone's experience been so far?

I was wondering how it would look in a black handle. Probably awesome. But since it cost over a hundred bucks I'm not about to try swapping it...

Re: Are you a collector?

Mostly spydercos but I do use them all. I don't see collecting stuff just to put it in a case unless it's really rare or antique that doesn't make sense to me, and ?I can't afford that stuff lol. The only other knives i got are a handful of butterfly knives and old style manual stilettos of modest s...

native 5 salt action

Got my native salt and am loving it. But the action out of the box was smooth, but a day of futzing with it it is stiff halfway open. I've heard these have no washers so.... will it break in or should I lube it, and if so with what?
Thanks.

Re: Seriously considering a native salt how's everyone's experience been so far?

Crap. Just got cut by mine! (not deep just a scratch but wow! FYI it comes shaving sharp and beyond...).
Only ever got cut once before with a spyderco don't want to make this a habit...
FYI the pocket clip is magnetic so not the ti one like on the salt 2.

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

something I wrote on the subject to a friend of mine a while back. Not specifically about knife shops but the idea is the same... 2-11-16 Sunday Star-Ledger article was déjà vu all over again. The two-page spread on the closing of Efingers, a longtime sports store in Bound Brook, New Jersey, had a r...

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

Still have one store I can go to, they stock a lot of spydercos but hardly all. But the prices are not bad and I like to be able to actually handle the knife.
Online stores are great for wider selection but that's about it.

Most of my knives are plain edge. But serrations are growing on me, tho my only serrated knife right now is a combo edge native5.
