Cons: None
Great EDC
Extremely light weight carry knife! I like the wire clips, but this one works very well. It is very secure and easy to deploy. I've added a small lanyard which makes it even easier. The S110V steel is quickly becoming my favorite. This is my second knife with this steel and it holds an edge like it's made of diamond. I'm thrilled to see Spyderco offering this steel on a bunch of their models. I've been using it for ordinary tasks for a couple of weeks and it's still razor sharp. One handed closing took a little practice, as I'm used to liner locks, but I've gotten pretty good at it. Fit and finish are top notch. Great knife!

Great EDC Knife!
The Native 5 Lightweight is just big enough to feel substantial in my hand, but so light it 'disappears' in my pocket. I have medium sized hands and I can still hold this knife securely without my finger in the choil. When I use the choil, it feels like a bigger knife than it is. I like the blade's shape better than my Salt 1, and I love the way the folded blade has no exposed corners to snag on anything in my pocket. I'm glad Spyderco gave this lightweight a real clip instead of the wire type that some of the other lightweights have. My only complaint is that the lock's spring is too stiff and the blade makes a loud 'click' when I open and close it. I took the knife apart and bent the spring slightly, and also cleaned the pivot area and now it opens more smoothly, but it still 'clicks' louder than I would like. This is my first S110V blade - I like having the 'Super' steel, and I really like that it is made in the U.S.A.
