Spyderco® Native 5 with G-10 Handle - Plain

Brand: Spyderco

Pre-order only. Available after: 02/10/2016

Ships after: 02/10/2016

The Native5 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 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. 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.
