The Caribbean is a great knife, no doubt!

But can you explain the fixed blade to me (it looks cool, don´t get me wrong!) ? Seems to have a real forward-weight chopper blade, but is a bit small for that; And what are the "notches" in the spine for? (Looks a bit like late medieval / renaissance sword breaker blade (see here https://todsworkshop.com/products/circa ... rd-breaker for example), but of course can´t be made for that purpose)

long story long, this is a mini version of a knife that was designed to be a jack of all trades wilderness survival tool and to be well suited to build a bow and arrow set in the wild. it has a flat draw blade, a heavy forward belly for chopping, and "saw" teeth for notching. the full size version is 1/4" thick and a foot long, so it's quite the beast. while this one isn't going to do all of those tasks, i thought it would be a nice edc fixed blade that doesn't just replicate my folders' capabilities.

Thanks for the explanation! :) This makes sense - though, as we both said, perhaps even more so in the larger size.
I thought the "teeth" were a bit too dull for actual notching, but I ´d have to try!

@Wartstein, it’s a “Tracker”. The hooked part of the blade cuts curls for days. It has a strong following on www.BushcraftUSA.com.

I've been rocking the Spyderco Native Chief in S90V since they became available. I look for large 4 to 5 inch folders and fixed blades under 5 inches and this is pure awesome.

Every day I practice deploying it. It's beautiful! The S90V blade (shape) is very good for a defensive weapon that folds.

I have one more payment on my Native Chief in Rex45, and then I'll probably be carrying that.

Yeah I never had problems with any Spyderco clips, but my Sebenza feels like that when I try clipping it over all that material.

What keeps you from getting one? ;)
