That's pretty much where I'm at. I've taken a liking to the pm2 which is fine as we head into colder weather but in the summer I like lighter knives. I'm very much waiting on that native 5 salt to come out. I did try a para 3 for a while but for some reason it never stuck with me. In theory it's perfect. I've been eyeballing the native 5 series for a while now and as soon as that salt drops I'm jumping on that train. Being a sailor it's appropriate anyway. At least that's what I tell myself.steelcity16 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 26, 2018 2:59 pmI think I am close with the Native LW, but it doesn't really come in any of the flavors of steel that I like. No Cruwear, 4V, V4E, 3V, 52100, Rex45, or M4. Any of those in DLC would be potential game changers for me. The Native Salt will probably come close until some of these other steels make it into the Native LW. A blacked out Native Salt would be one that may rise above the rest and seems like one that would be very likely to happen.
Once fall comes and I start wearing jeans I will start carrying the Native G10 and Para 3 models. I prefer the FRN in the summer with my shorts.
So long story short, no "the one". More like "the thirty...soon to be forty before the end of the year"
