Love the S90V, just not the color! Iā€™m curious what the premium for the steel will be.

Dang, I was hoping you'd stay in Seki laker_cj! :D I've been carrying my Endura more than any other knife since I got it earlier this year. I was hoping to see an Endela, Police LW, Jester, maybe a Delica Wharnie, Straight Spine Stretch, Spyderhawk SE, Lil Matriarch SE, etc.

Well dang. I like the g10 native better, but I don't think I can resist the teal/s90v combo.

Is it really $175 msrp?? So only $122.50 map?

I don't want it, but I also really do...

I am not a Native 5 fan, though it is a good knife. However, this should appeal to a lot of people. I predict these will not last long. they will sell out fast.

I'm thinking the opposite! I think they will sit for a while. The Rex45 LW sat around quite a while, and that was supposed to be an instant sellout. This one has S90V, that for some reason a lot of people don't seem to care for, or at least jump all over when knives in that steel are released. Also that color, granted a few of the others dropped in this similar color have sold well. The package as whole seems like it has potential to sit a little bit...though I could be wrong!

You could be right, but I am not so sure. A lot of people love S90V. If it had been S110V it would sit forever. S90V has a loyal following. The color, I think, will be the big selling point, not the steel. All of the others have sold well, even the Endura (though I think I saw it in stock in one place a couple of days ago). The color is bright and easy to see if dropped and that is why I like it. It is not really teal. It is aqua of some shade.

We sold out of them within an hour. ~1000 piece run.

Pending on our shipping schedule (we're working 6 days a week to try to keep up); dealers should start seeing them in their within a week and preorders through them should start popping up by end of day/tomorrow is my guess.

I like S90V but there have already been quite a few Native5s ran in it.

I think the EDC and Instagram crowd will gobble this one up. They seem to like innocuous colors.

I will probably buy one. I like the knife, the steel and the color so it will be hard to pass.

The Rex45LW has to compete with its g10 counterpart. I personally picked up the G10 and passed on the LW.

Good point that is often overlooked

I love my Seki knives, but I guess I wouldn't say no to a Teal/Aqua G10 Military in S90V or better yet Cruwear? Or even better, DLC Cruwear? :D

That'd wreck the system - S30V - Seki; S90V - US.... I know it stinks, but patience... there's more in the pipeline.

I hate waiting. :D A Teal/Turquoise/Aqua G10 Military in S90V works for me! ;) As long as it matches my shorts!!

S110v and S90v are super similar, right? Teal is a nice color for a socially acceptable knife

Not real big on the color but I like my Native 5s and S90V. I may end up picking one of these up
