Produced exclusively for Knife Center at Spyderco’s factory in Golden, Colorado, this unique limited-edition version of the popular Native® 5 proudly showcases Crucible® CPM® S90V® blade steel and a lightweight linerless handle with smooth matte G-10 scales.
A state-of-the-art powder metallurgy stainless steel, CPM S90V has an advanced, vanadium-rich alloy composition. Its high vanadium content promotes the formation of hard vanadium carbides instead of chromium carbides, significantly increasing the steel's wear resistance and leaving more free chromium available to provide superior corrosion resistance. In this knife, this high-performance steel is precision machined to yield a full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade with a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.
Equally unique, the handle of this Exclusive Native 5 features 3-D-machined forest green G-10 scales with a smooth matte finish. It houses a stout back lock mechanism that locks the blade securely in the open position and is easily operated with either hand. To ensure convenient carry and instant access, it also features four sets of threaded stainless steel inserts to anchor a broad-based pocket clip, allowing a choice of left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry.
Combining all the proven qualities of this iconic design with a state-of-the-art blade steel and distinctive handle scales, this limited edition Exclusive version of the Native 5 is sure to become a highly prized collector's item.
