Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I had the same experience with the Giant Mouse GM3 vs the GMP3 in bronze. The idea of a bronze knife was cool to me but the added weight vs. titanium was a deal breaker: 4.8 ounces vs. 3.2 ounces. That's a huge difference. I'd love to see more Bronze, Brass and Copper accents and backspacers but full handles make it non-functional in a knife that's intended to be a smaller carry. I think that's why they've shrunk the Copper Natrix; if it had been done at full size, it would have broken 5 ounces. As it is, shrunk down to 2.75", it's still coming in at 3.7 ounces vs 2.9 ounces for a full sized Natrix. Does anybody know the country of origin for the Copper Natrix? I can't seem to find it clearly defined anywhere? EDIT: Nevermind, I found out. It's being made in China. That doesn't bode well given some of the Natrix issues that popped up during last years production. So far the couple of 2018 Chinese Kershaws I've handled have been pretty decent. Hopefully they execute the copper Natrix well for all those wanting one.
