I've been carrying an S110V lightweight Native as my work knife since they came out.
I recently picked up a Maxamet version.
My first thought when I opened my new Maxamet Native 5 was - this is heavier.
Sure enough - it's 0.05 ounces heavier. It's funny to me that anyone could even tell the difference. But after you handle something every day for years I guess the human body learns.
So - I have a question.
Why is the Maxamet Native heavier? Is Maxamet just more dense?
As a side note I really like the color. Good job!
Yeah, I can feel a difference. The Maxamet Native just feels more a little bit more heavy and solid in the hand than my S90V Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive DLC Orange Native LW. I measured on my postal scale and the Maxamet is 70 grams and the S90V is 68 grams. I just think Maxamet is more dense. Like how Gold, Lead, Tungsten, etc are all more dense and heavy than other metals like Titanium if you were weighing a piece that was the same size physically.
