    I've come across this sprint recently and I'm considering it. I did a search but I'm not seeing anything about the knife on the forum.

    Has anyone got one yet? Post some pics and thoughts if you do?

    I bought the Manix 2 version and love it. I didnt know there was a Native version. Thanks. I just ordered it. I'll let you know how it is when it arrives.

    I’ve got one and I love it! I have the smooth green/S90V version as well. I’m a big fan of the linerless smooth G10 KC Natives! In typical Golden, CO fashion, F&F is great, nice action, locks up like a vault, and of course...Cruwear!

    Thanks for the heads up, I would have missed it. There have been rumblings over the years for a cruwear Native I guess it’s finally here. When was the release? Native sprints usually don’t get the attention the other flagships do but this release was totally under my radar.

    If I still have a job and a house after the hurricane passes. And they are still in stock. I'll grab one.

    I like mine a lot. I have the peal ply G10, FRN, and now this. Easy on the pocket.

    Smooth G10 looks awesome. Love the Native, so that is definitely going on the "want" list.

    I don't mind the smooth G10. I do mind the lack of liners in a Cruwear knife though. So mine became this:


    Now I also have an S35vn smooth black G10 linerless Native 5 for daughter #1. Daughter #2 already carries a yellow LC200N one.

    My idea of the perfect Native 5 is just about complete. :D

    Cruwear blade, steel liners, and african blackwood scales. Now I just have to decide on a clip. Right now I'm thinking of getting one of those gorgeous creations by Josh of Razor Edge Knives.

    The perfect Native would be one with a Cruwear blade, and Micarta scales on the linered model. I'm thinking with the success of the Shaman this should be inevitable as smaller companion blade. I'm voting for OD Green Micarta to match the OD Green Micarta Cruwear Shaman Sal mentioned will likely be happening.
