Does that complexity decrease the simplicity? Not at all.

FYI to everyone interested in the Ti scales- they do add almost an ounce of weight.

Thats not as bad as the copper scales that make the Lil' Native weigh almost as much as a Shaman! I'm sure the extra ounce adds a little more substance to the knife.

Are there any of the ti finishes ( stonewashed etc) that resists scuffs/ snail trails better than others- hate the look of the ti scales after use, but love them new lol

So I used to be team no jimping on the lil native because for me the textured g10 provided enough grip on its own. With the Ti scales there is no more grip and I now wish the knife had jimping! Lol how the tables have turned

I don't have any plans for another little knife since U have the Chaparral, but this looks very classy.

I briefly had a lil native, but it just wasn't for me. I have to admit though, all these scales you guys are posting look great!

The Lil Native may be the handsomest small knife Spyderco makes and those scales make it look even better.

After disassembly, I scrubbed the blade with an old toothbrush and dish soap. It's amazing the deposits that get left on the DLC from almost 2 years of EDC-ing this blade. Rubbed some oil on the blade to get it back to "black" because after I washed it the DLC was a dull grey color. If you love the Lil Native I highly recommend these scales and I don't even notice the added weight when wearing jeans. Here's some pics:Image

I’m not the biggest fan of titanium(or smooth handles in general) but these look really good.

Been tempted by these as well - I've enjoyed flytanium on my delica, but didn't love the ones for the PM2 and was severely disappointed in the benchmade scales they did - they used to internally mill those and then stopped doing it without saying anything and still charge the same for them.

I'm sure on a the lil native though they are great. I have a DLC bladed one so this is tempting.
