My dear friends,

a lot of you said they never saw a Native SS in plain before. I asked me why? And found an answer - you didn't look in the picture thread I made for you - the Native is posting #36 :D

What Jeff said. And I've seen the knife in the pic has AUS-10 steel :)

Hi Bluntrauma,

I just Googled, "Spyderco Native II" and found a couple of sites that listed this knife in CE for <$100. Bestknives (http://www.bestknives.com/spydnatiic4.html) had it for 62.95.

I have the Native II in PE and have been happy with it. It is not as comfy in the hand as the Native III, which is my favorite in the Native line.

Thanks to all who posted pics in this thread. IMO the Native line is one of Spyderco's classics, one that should always be in production!

Good hunting,
EarthDog

Thanks EarthDog. The one you posted the link to has a Partially serrated edge. I am finding those a lot. I may just get one for the difference in price. Hell I can grab one of those on Ebay for 50-60. That plain edge sure is pretty though.

I just shelled out for a subcom with some custom work by Potterma and an SS Jester so that 100 bucks would be hard to cough up with Christmas coming.

Dear Santa....... :D

Pictures are a Forum requirement when discussing new Spydies or customized versions of Forumite Daywalkers designs!!! We will eagerly be expecting you to remedy this situation once the aforementioned matter separators arrive..... ;)

(Have you picked up the ResCom yet????? Need input!)

As is right now 100.00 for one NIB isn't bad.
I have had a couple but both were AUS 10 steel.

Do you have a link to this? I've been using the sh*t out of mine thinking it would be easily replaceabe... maybe its time to retire it?
