In addition, the fit and finish is top notch, backspacer is nice and flush, no cosmetic defects anywhere, the blade finish is flawless.
The swedge grind is a little asymmetrical, not a huge deal, unless it's an indicator that the primary grind is uneven, but that is not the case as far as I can tell.
The edge bevels aren't perfect, but aren't too bad. Heel area is better than a few other Spyderco's I've gotten recently, so that's a plus. Factory sharpness isn't super important to me, but also not bad on this knife. A quick 10 minute touch up/strop and I am happy enough to carry it with this edge for a little while.
Behind the edge I measured at 22 thousandths of an inch on average. Considering the edge angle appears to be at a true 15 degrees per side, that's not too terrible. I'd prefer it thinner, but I've already made a couple of cuts through cardboard with the knife, and it is good to go. I may still have someone put a regrind on it. I've been kicking around the idea of getting something reground for a while now, and Cruwear is an ideal steel to take really thin bte. It's pretty hard, pretty tough, with good edge stability. The native 5 is a great work knife in my mind too. I was going to get my brouwer reground, but that much raw cutting ability isn't necessary on a more general purpose edc knife, which is the role I see the Brouwer in.
Lastly, the action on this knife is incredible. Spydercos Golden backlocks truly are a marvel. Super smooth, making it a lot of fun to open and close.
Now I'm just waiting for the rest of my aftermarket hardware to come in.
