Ho Hum
I am less impressed with this knife than I expected to be. If I compare it to the Delica 4 that is my main carry knife, this one feels more fat, bulky and heavy than the Delica 4, without having any additional advantages that result from the added heft. Yeah, it has fancier steel, and it is made in the USA, but the safe, where it spends most of its time, is little impressed. I'd go for the Delica 4 over the Native 5 in a heartbeat, any day of the week. It's not a bad knife, just for my purposes a less useful tool, in small ways, than the Delica 4.

Best knife I've owned
This was my first purchase out of the budget class. I read all the reviews and bought my Native 5 burple without ever holding a Spyderco knife in my hand. When it arrived, it didn't leave my hand for a week. This knife fits my hand like I was born with it in hand. Fit and finish is as good as I've seen. I am totally a Spyderco fan now. And very nice service and fast delivery from Knife Center also.

my first Spyderco knife
After reading up on the S110V blade material I wanted a knife using this steel. I liked the profile of the Native 5 but I wasn't too sure about the scale color, I'd rather have another color. Also, I've never had a knife with scales made from the G10 textured or smooth. The textured G10 didn't disappoint at all. Even though the texture is very small, it's very, (for the lack of a better term), "grippy". The blade lived up to my expectations. I've not done a lot of cutting with it yet, but the times I've used it, it cuts smoothly and was sharp right out of the box. The only thing I didn't care for is the torx bit size, (T-6), to change the location of the clip was hard to find. I drove to three hardware stores and an auto parts store only to find T-8 is the smallest they had. I ordered one online just to change the clip location. Maybe switch to T-8 holes in the screw heads to switch the clip location, or throw a bit in the box to save the end user, (me), the time and effort driving and finally ordering one online.
