Lil Native Exclusive - Rivers Edge Cutlery

Postby Mushroom » Tue Jan 12, 2021 2:06 pm

Just saw Rivers Edge Cutlery announced this via their Instagram.

Via Rivers Edge Cutlery Instagram - "Well, we guess the cat is out of the bag, so here is the OFFICIAL announcement.

We have only a portion of the run of our Exclusive Lil Native from Spyderco that will be to us soon. We had sent an email to the people who’s order we had to cancel for the RECPM2 oversell back in August giving them first dibs on these as an apology. This info was not meant to be public just yet , because we are getting so few. Anyways , Keep an eye out as we will be selling what’s left after the people on the cancellation list have been taken care of."


Via Rivers Edge Cutlery's Website - https://riversedgecutlery.com/products/ ... d-g10.html


This is a larger run, but will be disbursed in small batches. Coming soon... Be sure to subscribe to be notified when available! Strict limit of one per person, per household. Orders will be canceled for people violating this rule. Good Luck!

This unique expression of the Lil' Native was specially manufactured for River's Edge Cutlery. The blade of this elite knife is crafted from CTS® 204P, a state-of-the-art powder-metallurgy stainless steel that offers a remarkable combination of wear resistance, toughness, and corrosion resistance. Full-flat ground for superior edge geometry, the PlainEdge™ blade also features a durable flat dark earth PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating that reduces its reflectivity and gives it a no-nonsense tactical appearance.

To complement its distinctive blade finish, the knife's handle proudly showcases olive drab-colored G-10 scales, black-coated hardware, and a black-coated wire pocket clip that supports left or right-side, tip-up carry. The scales have a peel-ply texture to help ensure a secure grip and are precision machined to accept the nested stainless steel liners that form the foundation of the knife's high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism.

One of the most extraordinary expressions of the Lil' Native design ever created, this Exclusive knife is destined to become a highly prized collector's item.

I absolutely love this!!! It looks amazing with the black hardware. I need one of these! I'll be watching this like a hawk, hoping there will be some left.

They sent me an email saying I can forfeit my spot to reserve one of the rec pm2s from the next batch for one of these.

I dont know what Ill do. The lil native doesnt really do it for me, but I dont need another pm2 either.

So I was one of the folks that got this email. Can't decide on this one. I love this combo, and it looks awesome. But I just don't carry my little native much anymore. I think I'll just wait for the pm2 to eventually come back.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones that got the PM2, and honestly...once I had it in hand, I was pretty unimpressed with it. The different color steel/hardware/scales gave it a pretty busy and uneven look to the eye. Also, that PVD coating almost looks like a rose/pinkish color. I was excited for it, but once I had it in hand I felt like "oh, that's it?" Weighed my options and decided to keep my S30V DLC PM2 with with the OD scales. Looked more uniform to me.

I knew it wouldn't be for me and actually traded it to a friend of mine at work for a kayak haha.

I confess to not understanding today's cutlery market, what with all the "stunt" releases these days. Numbers so small that you leave the over-whelming majority of your customers unhappy that they could not spend their money with you.

Thanks.
Hope those that want them can get them. I don't think I'll be buying one.

Got the email and I'm waiting on the PM2. I'm not really a huge fan of the Lil Native. Too bad it wasn't a Military or Endela/Endura/Delica.

I think I would prefer the REC configuration in a PM2 over Lil’Native. Haven’t had a PM2 in a good while, so not sure I would like it enough to keep it, but just that one would be super easy to flip even in these parts of the world.

The Rex 45 lil’native was my first try at lil’natives, and I’m really not sure what I think about it. I like it, but I almost never carry it. I think it’s the lock. I might give another go with a back lock some day. If Spyderco could just find the time to release all those LC200N blandes that got stuck in glass, and find some handles for them..

On a somewhat unrelated note, does anyone know if REC will be making more para 3’s or are they only making another batch of PM2’s?

As far as I know, only the PM2 is an “unlimited” limited

One of my favourite steels.
And not in backlock.

I opted to switch my PM2 spot for this, because I give up on the CF/S90V coming any time soon. I’m thankful REC is doing any of this and they will always have my business.
