New Models Dropped: Lil' Native Backlock, SpyderHawk Salt Orange Sprint, Shaman Black Blade

Postby dplafoll » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:21 am

Thanks again to Mark's Outdoors in Vestavia Hills, AL for letting me photograph their knives.

Sorry these took a few extra days to post.

Lil' Native Backlock:
I'm still impressed with this design. I think it's a true competitor to the Dragonfly 2 in that size range. This particular model is still very excellent with the backlock. I generally prefer the wire clip, but I also appreciate the fact that this one is 4-way instead of 2-way, and makes it feel, to me, more like its big brother (and I don't mind the spoon clip at all). Personally, I think that the compression lock and the backlock are Spyderco's two best locks, and now the Lil' Native gives you a very solid smaller option in either lock. Well done. Now for some sprints! :p

SpyderHawk Orange Sprint:
I have no use case for this knife, but it's still got the old-school ergonomics and such of the previous Salt handles. If you need/want a bigger hawkbill Salt knife, this one's for you.

Shaman Black Blade:
It's a Shaman, so it's still a beast and a fantastic knife, but now stealthier for your tactical boxcutting needs. ;)

Does the back lock version have steel liners or not? I heard Eric make that statement on a video from one of the shows, shot or blade, can’t remember.
Overheard at the end of the ice age, “We’ve been having such unnatural weather.”

You know, I forgot about that. In looking back at my video, I can't see any liners in there and I think you're right that Eric said it was linerless. I'm gonna say I'm 99% sure that it's linerless.
