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 is the fifth generation of design, the current Native 5 proudly reflects our tireless commitment to Constant Quality Improvement (C.Q.I.) by boasting a number of significant design and engineering advances.
Featuring 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 CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade features a full-flat grind, a distal taper, and an understated swedge that combine to offer both a distinctive appearance and exceptional edge geometry. A forefinger choil also supports the option of a “choked up” forward grip for increased leverage and control during use. To ensure swift, positive opening with either hand, the blade includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™.
