Make sure you check the regulations on size before you buy.
If the Caribbean is too big my second pick for a folder is the Salt 2 in black.
Would you rather have a Salt 2 in H1 or a Native Salt in LC200N? I would think the LC200N would be better, so I've been leaning toward the Native Salt. And SE or PE? Is it good to have a completely rust proof knife even in the Army since you just never know?
Thanks for the input.
I would only pick the Salt 2 if light reflectivity was an issue because you can get it in all black, I think the Native Salt is a superior knife with superior ergonomics and steel. Either way make sure you bring a torx driver with you if you’re using this in a military application, a sharpening stone wouldn’t hurt either.
As far as PE or SE I really don’t like serrated blades but that’s kind of a personal thing. Serrated knives have superior cutting ability though.
If it was strictly a self-defense knife though I would go serrated all day long because it will be new out of the package sharp until you use it. The only sub 3.5” blade I would even think about using for SD is a Tasman or something similar. (again serrated would be better).
It’s always better to have a rustproof knife I’m probably repeating myself but I’m EDCing a Caribbean leaf PE and a Native Salt PE. I’ll switch up the third knife depending on where I am and what I’m doing or just go with the two.
Hope that helps.
