    Thanks! I do prefer around 3.5 inch folders, but ever since I bought the Techno I'm really starting to appreciate smaller knives!

    I've been thinking about getting the caly 3.5 and the native! How do you like them? Do you prefer one over the other?

    Stop thinking and get them. Both are great knives. I carry VG10 Caly3.5 since they came out (carried Caly3 before that) and Native5 for more than a year. Absolutely love them. If you missed 2013 Forum knife, it is unfortunate, but S110V CF should be out in the future. S110v is a nice upgrade to S35VN, but I didn't have issued with S35VN either. It holds well and no problem to maintain.

    My top choices Native5, G10/VG10 Caly 3.5/3 & C83 Persian Black micarta/bolsters

    Absolutely love the Native! I like my Caly 3 and 3.5, but I prefer a more hand filling grip that the Natives have! Yeah, I'm still waiting on the new Native SV110 myself!

    I love my Calys, but Native5 feels better in my hand. FFG makes this knife the winner in my book.

    Landon, Your #1 show me you like longer blades, so it surprises me that the Caly 3 beats out the 3.5 on your list. I feel in the minority preferring the 3, but I prefer<3.25" folders. Why the 3 over the 3.5 for you?

    It is an odd choice and you are correct about the 3" being my preferred when clearly I like longer blades the most. I am a firm believer that you can do small work with a big knife, but not big work with a little knife. My normal edc consists of at LEAST 2 blades, normally 3, sometimes 4 if you include the multitool's blade. This means for me, that I can have a larger folder, medium, and small. In use I find the shorter length of the 3 with the same width of the 3.5 gives the leaf blade more belly than it's longer brother. I use my 3 as an improvised kitchen and steak knife almost daily and find the added belly works better in my uses. You are not alone, the 3" is no slouch!
