Nice! Glad you like it.
I know I know the horror. No knife should be abused in such ways
Just found out they are gonna be making a hawkbill dragonfly2. Super excited for that one considering how much I like this one
I hope it's not serrated or in H1, oh well I'll get one anyway.
LoL that's exactly what it is. I like the H1 steel. Not a huge fan of serrations but I know they have their place.
I think it will be a great addition to my tacklebox
Dang it. I had a feeling that's what they'd make. Yeah I'll probably get one at some point. I almost bought the ladybug hawkbill but I thought it would be too small. I do have a Tasman salt that I use in the boat.
I saw that the S110V Para 3's are available now. I haven't even broken this one in yet :/
Finaly got to fondle one . Sweet blade.
I almost order a set of those blue screws for this one

Got a new Salt 2! Me likey...
The shaman finally got here. It’s a XL version of the Native with a compression lock.
Native 5 - Shaman - PM2
Lock shot. Notice how the knob on the choil interfaces with the compression lock. You can’t compress the lock and flick it open.
Holes in the liners.
Top shot. The backspacer is steel. This needed to balance the substantial blade. The balance point is under the compression lock.
Spine shot. PM2 is on the bottom. The shaman’s blade has high saber grind that looks very similar to the Junglas.
-This thing is a beast. Lock up is tight. Compression lock is strong and reliable.
-lots of blade
- radiused scales are are very comfortable.
-stonewash finish looks good. Never had a problem with a stonewash on a Spyderco.
-scales are smooth as glass. We were running errands, the wife was driving and I was playing with it.it slipped out of my hand and nearly stabbed my nutsack as it impaled into the seat.
-action was stiff out of the box. I ended up playing with the pivot to get it to flick open.
If you like the native and want a bigger and much heavier knife, then this guy is for you. I like it and it’ll likely kick the PM2 out of mt pocket.
Gonna get one of these after the Holidays.
Already preordered one. I love the native and "need" one right away.
Get ya flip on!
