The Spyderco Native 5 C41GP5 has a spear point CPM-S35VN steel blade. The handle has steel liners with black G-10 scales.
The Native 5 comes with a lock back and reversible pocket clip for easy carry.
The Native 5 represents an evolution in American knife making with a bold G-10 handle and nitrogen-hardened CPM-S35VN blade.
The Native 5 is Spyderco’s first production folder made using Crucible Inc. powdered technology CPM-S35VN steel.
Its flat-ground blade is Plain Edged with a weight reducing spine-swedge made using CPM-S35VN.
The G-10 handle harbors dual skeletonized liners, a full-length back spacer and a back lock.
Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System on the Native 5 improves the blade’s open/close fluidity while the folder itself is constructed with larger-sized torx screws for simple adjustments and tightening.
A four-way, transport-friendly, hourglass pocket clip can be positioned for tip-up/tip-down and left-/ or right-handed carry with a hole through the center of the clip ready for threading a thong or lanyard.
Spyderco’s Native 5 showcases the maturation of American knife making techniques and how today’s modern folders are sharper, smoother and better performing knives than their early back lock predecessors.
