- Technical Description
The Native 5 is the result of years of evolution and refinement of Spyderco’s popular Native model. It expresses the time-tested size, shape, and ergonomics of the original design with the benefit of state-of-the-art materials and a highly refined back lock mechanism that represents the pinnacle of strength, precision, and ease of operation.
This extraordinary expression of the Native 5 combines all the features and benefits of the standard pattern with a blade made from premium stainless steel.
The leaf-shaped profile of the Native 5’s blade provides a long, gently curved cutting edge and a sturdy, utilitarian point. For maximum control, it features a forefinger choil and a thumb ramp with strategic jimping (textured grooves) that allow a forward-positioned grip during detailed cutting tasks. Its Trademark Round Hole proudly announces the knife’s Spyderco lineage and makes one-handed deployment with either hand swift and positive.
The Native 5’s linerless handle utilizes textured G-10 scales that are the signature color of Spyderco’s elite family of CPM knives. To ensure convenient carry and instant access, the handle includes a broad-based four-position clip that supports left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.
