    +1 -I bought a bottle about 5 years ago and have barely dented it. I'm sure there are better lubricants available, but for cheap, readily available and food safe, this is hard to beat.

    Sounds like you just need to make it your dedicated left-hand carry knife for a few years :)

    The straightening idea is interesting though. I wonder if Spyderco W&R would attempt anything like that.

    Big fan of g10 with nested liners. What current production models have them?

    I only came up with Para2, Military, and Yo2. Is that it?

    For me, the edge goes to g-10. I'm a big fan of g-10 with recessed liners. I also have a few in frn now and like it more than expected. I especially like the texture used on the UKPK.

    IIRC the CF/s110v Native will be peel-ply CF, so grip should be similar to g10.

    I concur that there are a couple on the bay for around $150, which isn't terrible. I would personally wait for the...
