NRA Show Seek and Find: Spyderco Native 5 Moonglow

I loves me some Spydercos, but have only managed to snag two for my collection. So far. One that’s intrigues me, though, is the relatively new Native 5 Moonglow. No, it’s not designed to eviscerate zombies, Sal Glesser forbid. And this isn’t Spyderco’s first green glowing blade. Their first was the ball bearing lock-up Manix 2 Moonglow, introduced a few years back. Curiously bypassing the Cannon and Barnaby Jones Moonglow models, The Native 5 Moonglow was announced a few months back and has just recently started to dribble out of Golden . . .

So when we’re in Houston for the NRA show next week, one of my many quests will be to search one of these out for a little hands on examination. This lockback EDC knife (see, it says EDC right there on that full flat ground blade) ain’t cheap. It retails for about $150, and until the initial demand is filled, they’re going for as much as half that again.

What’s that? Why would anyone want a glow-in-the-dark knife? As Bluto would say, why the hell not?

    at least its got a nice blade steel. i could see the advantage to a glowing handle in a camping/outdoors situation

  2. Matt in FL says:

    The problem with glow in the dark is it has to be charged up. How likely is it that it’ll be glowing when you need it to be?

    1. Esoteric says:

      ask the flashlight thats always in my pocket

  3. Nate says:

    The EDC is because it was an EDC forums special edition run

  4. Joleolsen says:

    I want it, but if it spends all day in my pocket how will it be glowing when I need it.
