I’ve handled my friend’s PM3 and was impressed with how capable the knife seems as an EDC tool. Just looking at the lil’ Native makes me think it’s too little blade for me in general, with 2.1” of cutting edge on a 2.47” blade.
I have a Lil' Native and it's a small but capable knife. Apart from the size difference between the two knives which would most likely be the deciding factor, I chose the Lil' Native because while I like Spydercos I do not like thumb ramps.
They are 2 very different knives. Size difference is pretty substantial. In my personal experience, if you are going for a super small folder, the Lil Native gets trumped by the Dragonfly. Yes, the tiny Dragonfly. Because in terms of performance, the Lil Native blade is a bit too thick.
