Lil Native slip joint?

Postby Doc Dan » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:57 am

Has anyone seen the Lil Native slip joint? I was kind of interested in this but I have not seen one. Have they been released?

There is that. However, sometimes, around here, a slip joint is a good thing. I was wondering if anyone had handled one.

Do you have the back lock? If so, how do you like it? As you know, I love the Chaparral LW and Urban LW knives as all around pocket knives.

I don't think the slip joint has been released yet. I don't remember seeing it in their catalogue

The slippie will be my first lil native. It’s the one I have been waiting for to try the model.

Various articles have been written and videos made on how to convert a back lock into slip joint.
I believe the modification was done only to the lock bar engagement area and not on the blade proper.
This I assume was mainly for the UK laws.

Between my beloved Urbans and the LW Chapie I couldn't convince myself to get one. Yet ..... :D

P.S The answer to our quest Doc would be a baclock 3 inch mini Manix with linerless smooth G10 handle. THAT would be a killer edc IMHO. Maybe we should start a thread on this topic .....

I asked a couple times a while back if this was still in-the-works but never saw any confirmation.

Hope it's still happening, feels like there's a bit of a hole in the line-up when the only g10 slipit in production is the Byrd Tern. Not a bad knife, but not what I'm looking for, and unfortunately a reprise of the g10 UKPK also sounds unlikely iirc.

Once I see a Lil Native in the wild I might decide I do not like it. I KNOW I will like the up coming Coyote Urban LW.

I didn’t know if I would like it either. But after having for a time it turned out to be my favorite Spyderco small folder. You have to have it and use it for a while. You might find it will grow on you .

We have not heard a peep out of Spyderco about this folder since it was first announced. I hope there are still plans for it.

Ha, in my first post in this thread I said a new g10 UKPK looked unlikely and news of the exclusive broke a little over a month later...

Maybe now I should say the slip joint Lil Native looks unlikely? :p

Well I’m glad his thread got bumped. It needs to stay alive so that Spyderco understand that we want this life. I got the backlock And its such a good knife I just really want to see a slip joint.

I go every week wondering if I should create a new thread and figure out what's up with this model. Thanks for the bump everyone :)

Sal or anyone involved, throw us a bone here please! Either to know if it was delayed or even canceled (doubtful, since slippies seem to be all the rage lately), it would be wonderful to get any kind of info on this.

I feel like Spyderco said "nah."
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.
