That design would be a lot better with a comp lock.
With the Manix Backlock being discontinued I really have to wonder if backlocks are a good way to slow down sales of an otherwise popular design. I’d like to see the sales for the lil native comp lock vs the lil native backlock. I’d bet the comp lock version is selling better. The way the market seems to view backlocks as boring or something despite their robustness as a lock.
If the Spyderco rhino was a backlock or linerlock would there have been such a frenzy? I don’t think so.
So perhaps selling the Native Chief with a backlock is a surefire way to make it a slow seller. It’s a shame, but I suspect it’s true. Then again, the original Native must do well, Spyderco has been selling it for years. I don’t know. I’m rambling while waiting for my Sushi.
Most recently acquired: Native Chief, Shaman S90V, Para 3 LW, Ikuchi, UKPK, Smock, SUBVERT, Amalgam, Para 3 CTS-XHP, Kapara, Paramilitary 2 M390
Grail Paramilitary 2 M390 X 2! ACHIEVED!!
