Plenty of opportunity for sprints and exclusives. I'd like a version like the new Native fluted Carbon with S90V. I like the way it cuts. Wide flat grind. But made to be a fairly heavy duty folder. Simple, but stout.

Eric and I are considering the Native Chief as well. development is mostly done, should be easy to slide into queue.

Oh my!!! Here are my many thousands of dollars to purchase many Native Chiefs and prints their of!!!!!!!

Sorry about that. Still getting accustomed to Imgur. :o

As for the Rhino:
Ha! I wish that I could, my friend. I'd send you one today if I had one. ;)

One more vote for being excited about this knife. The combination of Manix-style blade, deep choil, and large enough size to be comfortable (the Native is too small for me to even be able to open comfortably one-handedly) looks absolutely killer.

this is not Manix style blade. This is no hump Native style.

I hear what you're saying, though the hump doesn't matter to me. It's the leaf shaped blade and high, flat grind that I like.

Yes, it is for real. Ordered awhile ago --I should have given a headsup to the forum then. (yes, in stock)

I would be all over trying this one out, but the s30v turns me off. I hope its a huge hit so they make sprints! I'll buy one of those.

Nothing against S30V, but I may hold out for a sprint too. Anyway it's exciting that it's finally out!

What steel would you want to see?
Thanks G-d that S30V is not turning off thousands of people, who are buying Militaries and Paras.

I'm hoping this and the PM2 Maxamet don't drop at the same time. Both are a must by for me.
