The Spyderco Native 5 All Black version combines an ultra-lightweight fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle with the advanced engineering of the Native 5 platform.
This knife’s full-flat-ground 75mm blade is machined from CPM® S30V powder metallurgy stainless steel and has a non-reflective Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. It includes an index-finger choil for a forward-positioned grip that allows enhanced control during detailed cutting tasks. A highly evolved back lock mechanism locks the blade securely in the open position and, along with the blade’s Trademark Round Hole™, allows ambidextrous one-handed opening and closing of the knife.
The linerless injection-molded FRN handle features a deep Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern for maximum grip security and includes four sets of threaded stainless steel inserts to mount the reinforced hourglass clip for tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the knife. Like the blade, this knife’s clip, clip screws, and all other metal hardware are also black coated.
