Since its original release in 1997, the Native® has been a mainstay of the Spyderco product line and a shining example of our American-made quality and innovation. Now in its fifth generation of design, the current Native 5 proudly reflects our tireless commitment to Constant Quality Improvement. This knife’s ergonomic handle features a solid stainless steel back spacer and textured G-10 scales. This linerless construction style reduces weight, while ensuring impressive structural strength and solid support for the knife’s highly refined back lock mechanism. The blade of this knife is crafted from CPM® S30V® stainless steel and features a full-flat grind, a distal taper, and an understated swedge that combine to offer both a distinctive appearance and exceptional edge geometry.
