Unfortunately there aren't many Spyderco dealers near me. I pretty much rely on pics and reviews for my next purchase. Many knives either click with me or not when I see the pics. I'm wondering now how many I would actually like if I got to see them in person.
I'm sharing this now as I just held a fluted titanium Native 5...wow, what a knife! Pics online look great but really never spoke to me. It seemed pricey and never really seemed worth it. Seeing this thing in the flesh is a game changer! handles are beautiful and provide some really nice grip. I guess my point of this thread is to see how many others feel this way.
In a way it may be a good thing there are limited dealers around me, I'd be broke if there were more!
You fellas near Golden are lucky!!
