now this native rocks

Postby rosconey » Wed Sep 28, 2011 2:47 pm

got my native 5 today-first off let me state i didnt like the first native i had that much-fine knife just didnt wow me

decided to try a native5 because of the bushing pivot and g-1:cool:

very glad i did-this feels as solid as the sage3-fits my hand well-

to make this quality at this price in america shows just how well spyderco can crunch numbers in these trying times

thanx sal

Which do you like more - the Native 5 or Sage 3?

I'm impressed enough by mine that I'm already thinking about what kind of wood to have someone replace the G-10 scales with.

To OP,
I am glad that you like N5. I love it.

Paul, do not forget to post pictures :p :)
Can you imagine this knife with bolsters? and Coco, Ironwood, jigged bone scales :p :p :p :p

I know i'm probably the minority here, but i miss the signature swedge. I'm waiting for someone to have one custom ground. I can't wait to handle one though, i'll probably buy one. Me and the Native go way back.

I agree the N5 is a hands-down winner. Seems like a close relative to the old Mini-Manix; it's got some heft, it's just as lean, smaller in size and slimmer in it's proportions. Kinda mean looking! -P

For sure, I can convince myself that I will pass up on a particular model, only to have a picture or two pop and then here I am thinking about it again. It's a sickness.
