Spyderco Native5

The Native5 represents an evolution in American knifemaking with a bold G-10 handle and nitrogen-hardened CPM-S35VN blade. 
The Native5 is Spyderco’s first production folder made using Crucible Inc. powdered technology CPM-S35VN steel.  Its flat-ground blade is PlainEdged with a weight reducing spine-swedge made using CPM-S35VN.  The steel is similarly structured to Crucible’s CPM-S30V but with the addition of niobium (columbium) carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides.  Niobium makes steel tougher while improving its resistance to wear and chipping and offers improved edge retention over basic smelted high-chromium steels.
The black G-10 handle harbors dual skeletonized liners, a full-length back spacer and a back lock.  First introduced to the knife industry decades ago, back locks have undergone many refinements and through better manufacturing techniques are among the safest and easiest locking systems to operate.  Today’s American-made back-locks have better self-closing ability, smoother action, solid lock-up and ease-in push-release opening for a higher caliber of lock. 
Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System on the Native5 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 Native5 showcases the maturation of American knifemaking techniques and how today’s modern folders are sharper, smoother and better performing knives than their early back lock predecessors.
