In the past, I've never understood the love people have for titanium handles on knives. After handling the new fluted Ti version of the Native 5, well, I still don't. Not that it isn't a nice knife. It's pretty, even to the eyes of the non-knife people I've showed it off to. It's comfortable in hand, and the machined surface offers good purchase without being abrasive. It feels very solid and capable,and it performs well. At 118 grams, it is the same weight as a carbon fiber Military, a noteably light knife. Therein lies the rub for me.
Somehow, being the same weight as something that much bigger just doesn't make it feel very light to me. While it carries well enough in the pocket of jeans, it might not fare as well in dress slacks. I can't be certain, since I don't own any. The thick handle and square corners make it uncomfortable to carry clipped in waistband unless you favor loose pants held up by suspenders.
Overall, it's a nice, dressy knife that is also suitable for real use whether you're a cubicle dweller or a construction worker. I'm sure the Native fans and titanium fans will both be thrilled.
