Have you carried/used the copper Natrix yet? Been eyeballing it for a few, wondering if it's my type of EDC. I want a Natrix, just haven't decided which one...

It's a lot smaller than it looks, which is why mine doesn't see a whole lot of pocket time.
Mine was definitely a "Chinese" Kershaw. It took for ever to break in because the detent was way too hard, and the jimping on the flipper tab was very sharp. Also the grind on the blade is all over the place. The D2 steel is a nice plus over the other Natrix's using 8cr13.

If it's a Chinese knockoff, can you be sure they used D2 steel for the blade?


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

It's not a Knock-Off,
it's just not one of the U.S.A made Kershaw's. Which tends to have better QC over the ones made in China/Taiwan.

Ah, Thanks, I misunderstood you. I understand the Taiwanese are fairly good with their metallurgy.

Thanks for the info. I see reviews run the gamut, some people love it, some hate it. Generally there's always a nitpick or two on the different versions. I like the design of the standard versions, but since the copper one came out I've been wondering if I'd like it. Blade grind is a non-issue for me, I haven't found a blade yet that I couldn't re-profile/sharpen. Wondering if the handle will hold up to the daily "real work" or if it's only good a an envelope opener. I work for a company that makes asphalt sealers, so I've got raw tar and asphalt, sealers, etc., on my hands (gloves) all the time. Don't have a clue if that stuff would kill the copper material.
