    Fascinating pairing. That Spyderco is something else, eh? I'd never seen a swedge/cut quite like it. Spyderco's FRN is one of my favorite materials in a modern handle, with its combination of comfort and grip-- yet one more knife/material I didn't fully understand until I had it in hand.

    I like the Spyderco Native very much and have a couple three of them. One of the things I like the most is that it is "Pin Construction" NOT "Screw and Post". Further, it doesn't have the Spyderco "Hump" but that's only a minor consideration.

    I like the wood scales on that one.

    Here's mine today; Jerry Halfrich "Jack Russell" fixed blade, with a Paul Long pocket sheath and a Bailey Bradshaw "Folding Bowie" with the Sawby self-lock.

    Nice Bradshaw Gary, it's a shame he's no longer making knives. His double rifles are the heat though :)

    Thanks, Jerry. Bailey made some great knives. If I remember correctly he was one of few makers that Scott Sawby licensed to use his "self lock" design. I'm real happy to own this one. I know he's out of the cutlery business, has been for years. What we custom knife lovers lost the custom gun lovers gained.

    Very nice. Where did you get your pocket sheath with the clip?
