Description

Description

The Spyderco Lil' Native packs all of the high-performance features of the full-size Native into a compact gentleman's folding knife. It sports a 2.5" CPM-S30V stainless steel blade with a full-flat grind and a satin finish. A prominent finger choil flows seamlessly into the textured black G-10 handle with contours that provide a comfortable and secure grip. This version of the Lil' Native employs the reliable Compression Lock mechanism and a low-profile reversible wire pocket clip.

Features:
  • Full-flat ground CPM-S30V blade steel offers great cutting performance and edge retention.
  • Textured G-10 scales paired with a sizable finger choil provide a full, four-finger grip and excellent control.
  • Reversible wire pocket clip allows right or left side tip-up everyday carry.

Great size for carrying EDC. Still plenty of blade. Easy to open in various ways, easy to disassemble for cleaning, and just a joy to carry and use. Only drawback, as others have noticed, is that when closing one-handed, back of the blade (the dull part, of course) hits the finger, so it stops it from closing. Not a big deal - it just means you have to move your finger and push the blade all the way in. Still easy to open and close one-handed.
Superb small carry, but with one nit to pick

I go almost everywhere with the PM2 clipped inside my pocket, and I think I got spoiled to how perfectly one-handed that knife is.

For me at 6'1", the Lil' Native feels small in my hand, but its smallness isn't irksome, in part because the width in the handle gives a bit of extra real estate to worth with, especially on a thumb slide open. It will finger flick, but with some adjustments to grip that I doubt I'll practice enough to master.

As others pointed out, the choil (and I had to look that term up) definitely protrudes into the cut out where you pinch down onto the compression lock. If your finger tip uses all of the space offered by that cut out, the choil will bounce against your finger tip and the knife will not be closed completely when you release pressure.

I'd make a funny comment about first world problems, and that would be quite true... but it's also true that this isn't an inexpensive knife.

It's a superb knife, all around, with at least one design issue that prevents it from being something amazing. It's going to replace my Dragonfly as my bottom-of-the-pocket carry in situations where I don't want to bring my PM2, and the Dragonfly will now be relegated to garbage night box destruction -- a job to which it's perfectly suited, I might add.

I love it! I got it for my Birthday this August and it is a great secondary edc. It is usually carried with a lionsteel KUR or lionsteel SR11 as of late. Its pretty much my everything knife cardboard, plastic, tape ect.. Its a great little knife for everyday tasks and especially when your wearing gym shorts or just don't feel like wearing a belt. And on top of that it uses the compression lock which is great for protecting your fingers when you close the knife itself because your fingers aren't in the path of the blade itself.
Great little knife

The pivot on mine was way too tight initially but after loosening it a bit still no blade play and easy 1 handed open and close. Great knife that wonít scare anybody!
Amazing EDC

Love it, it works excellent, the lock is not sticky and the bronze washers keep it smooth, the fit and finish is perfect. If I could only change one thing it would be to offer the knife more steels.
Perfect little edc knife

This knife makes an amazing edc blade for people who like small knives. While small you still feel like you can conquer any task because of the thickness of the blade. All in all another great product from Spyderco.
The proper fit for me

Iíd been looking for a smaller Spyderco for a long time. Something small with a compression lock is not common for Spyderco, so I was excited to get this! For what I do I need a thicker stock, and this delivers! Smooth action, wire clip, I canít say enough good things about it! Yes it has that little piece of Choiís that sticks out and hits your finger when you close it, but after the first few flicks you understand how to avoid it. Thatís the only reason I took away one star, but itís in no way a dealbreaker.
It's like a mini PM2

Smooth one-handed opening and closing just like a PM2. Fits perfectly inside a fifth pocket if you want to carry it discretely. As some have noticed, the end of the choil can bump into your finger as you're closing it, but it's not as annoying as I thought it would be, especially if you operate the lock with just the very tip of your finger/fingernail. It is a small knife, but it has a nice robust blade that can handle most of the duties that a PM2 or Para 3 could.
Wish I didnít lose it!

This is the first pocket knife I have ever lost- itís pocket clip came pretty ďlooseĒ out of the box, as in, the pocket clip did not grab my pocket tight enough, and now my Lil Native is somewhere in the Utah mountains.

I only had it a month or two, but I could not believe how much I loved it- it is a super small knife, but the way the handle is shaped, it fits my hand extremely well- and I have long fingers-
I plan to buy another one to replace my lost one- I just hope the wire clip is stronger this time around.
Awsome

This knife is my new favorite EDC. You can really have control of the blade by how it fits your hand

I got the Lilí Native as a Christmas present and it is amazing. Perfect for attorneys like me that in federal facilities are limited to a blade less than 2.5Ē.
Awesome size for EDC

This thing disappears in the pocket due to it's size and weight. The finish on the blade is awesome. Not sure if they'd call it stonewashed or what, but I like it. This is my first knife with the compression lock and it won't be my last. Wire pocket clip is great.
