SP230GP: C230GP Lil' Native Compression Lock
The iconic Native has been a mainstay of Spyderco's American-made production line for decades. Now all the highly evolved performance features of this incredibly popular design have been distilled into a compact gentlemen's folder with a 2.47" blade. Its full-flat-ground CPM-S30V stainless steel blade includes a prominent index-finger choil that flows seamlessly into the contours of the textured G10 handle scales. The result is a compact, ergonomic package that still offers a full, four-fingered grip and excellent control. This version of the Lil' Native goes a step further by adding their high strength Compression Lock mechanism and a low-profile deep-pocket wire clip that is reversible for left or right-side tip-up carry.

The Perfect EDC!
The perfect knife for suburban office work. The deciding factor in this purchase was the compression lock, which is my favorite! The size makes for a very subtle, yet sharp knife. I’ve had no problems touching up the blade on a Sharpmaker. I am considering the serrated version of this also. Just a wonderful knife!

Phenomenal EDC
This knife comprises of virtually all the best traits that the Spyderco series has to offer and compresses it into one small package of a knife.Compression lock from the Paramilitary 2. Elimination of the lanyard hole as in the Yojimbo 2 in order to optimize blade/handle ratio. The most sought after pocket clip as in the Sage 5 (wire pocket clip). Overall size is comparable to the Dragon Fly 2 but with G10 handles (I often have these random moments of panic that I somehow lost the knife because it's so light that I don't physically feel its presence). I had the opportunity to test the knife in field dressing a couple of wild hogs. The s30v held up great but what really made the knife sustain its edge during the procedure was utilizing the tip for a majority of the cuts. This knife is an epidermal zipper. I didn't get a lot of biological material in the handle area either since the overall size is small enough to where your hands will consume the entire 3/5 of the knife; shielding the openings within the handle from any materials that would enter otherwise....and it Spydie flicks like a boss once broken in.

I'm hooked.
Pros: The Lil Native is a great size for an easy EDC. It's a snappy little flipper too, and I fidget with it a lot. The blade snaps out tight using the underside middle finger Spydie hole method. I am a fan of the compression lock for many reasons, but it really works nicely with the ergonomics of this knife, and keeps your fingers safely outside of the blades path when closing. The one I got from KC came perfectly centered, no blade play, and dialed in nicely (unlike so many Spyderco's I've gotten that need weeks and some oil to break in). The G-10 is grippy and lends some confidence that this knife can take on some larger tasks than it's size would suggest. I also really like the weight. It's got some heft for it's size, and is not so lightweight that it feels cheap. Cons: The G-10 can be a little rough on the pants pocket. It's more something I notice than an actual "con". The Spydie clip is not my favorite, and it works ok here. I guess I just wish it looked a little less like I had a big paperclip in my pocket. In conclusion, I really like this knife a lot. It has become a favorite of mine in just a few days, and is definitely going to be a keeper in my EDC collection.
