    Constant and consistent submerging in the ocean, and constant exposure to sweat.

    No corrosion, no problems!

    Thank you!

    The handles really are fantastic. I have large hands and I can get comfortable four finger grip on the knife. It’s the perfect size, big enough to get a solid grip on yet small enough to be easy to carry.

    Yeah I broke down, couldn't wait for spyderco to release the S2 in LC :cool:. I was never attracted to the Native design, but it's super comfortable and actually a damn gud lukin knife. Fits my hand way better than the delica handle. I had to tweak the pivot bushing to get rid of the blade play, but it's extremely solid now with drop shut and no play in any direction.

    Took my girl out on the water today and we got into some small Yellowfin. She LOVES her Siren (She’s probably more biased than me, but whatever, haha) and has been itching to use it on the water. She fished hard all morning with the jig and finally got a bite so she got her wish!

    Right on. We get both those guys here too. More commonly the Kagami where I’m at. Both of them pretty good table fare.

    I've only had H1 in Spyderedge. How is it in plain edge? I know it doesn't have near the edge retention as other modern steels.

    I have a plain edge Pacific Salt and love it. I bought it a few years ago as the sole knife to bring on a trip to Belize with my family. It rode in my pocket, my waistband, or clipped to my buoyancy compensator while we explored jungles and caves, floated rivers, and dove in some of Belize's incredible ocean preserves. I used it for general daily tasks, and to date haven't needed to use my Wickededge on it.

    It is about like AUS8. Not horrible but not great either.

    That's great to hear. Just stropping?


    That's not bad at all. I was expecting less. I actually have a Ka-Bar Dozier in my pocket right now and if it were larger I'd be super happy with it as a lightweight knife.

    May need to invest in a Pacific Salt 2 in Plain Edge now. I like the Native but like a little bit larger of a knife.
