I'm new here, having just purchased my first Spyderco knife...the Native 5. After a lot of research (being that I'm stuck in the house until this COVID-19 thing passes) I made the decision that this would be the perfect knife for me. As it turns out, I was right. The size is perfect for EDC, and the weight makes it almost unnoticeable in my pocket. And to top it off, as a lefty, the ambi clip positioning is something I've been wanting all my life.
This is the first knife of decent quality I've ever owned. My previously mentioned research led me to a better understanding of the S30V steel, but I still was skeptical. That is, until I decided to test the sharpness by shaving the hair on my arm. A couple Band-Aids later, I understood what all the fuss was about. This is one seriously sharp knife. I became an immediate fan. Somehow I believe that I'll end up owning more than one Spyderco knife...and my family members will too.
