Directly inspired by Spyderco’s rare and highly collectible 40th Anniversary Knife, the Native 5 Fluted Carbon Fiber combines all the features and benefits of the iconic Native 5 platform, an ultra-high-performance CPM® S90V® stainless steel blade, and stunning fluted carbon fiber handle scales. The result is a truly extraordinary everyday carry knife with serious swagger.
The linerless scales of this knife are meticulously machined from solid carbon fiber to create a beautiful sunburst pattern that also offers a subtle non-slip texture. They are fitted with four sets of threaded stainless steel inserts that allow the attachment of a four-position pocket clip to support all possible carry preferences. Together with the knife’s high-strength back lock mechanism and the blade’s fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™, the versatile clip makes all aspects of the knife’s carry and one-handed operation completely ambidextrous.
Not to be outdone, the blade of this knife is crafted from premium CPM S90V stainless steel. This advanced particle metallurgy steel is enriched with a high vanadium content to promote the formation of hard vanadium carbides instead of chromium carbides. This enhances the steel’s wear resistance and Edge retention, leaving more free chromium available to provide superior corrosion resistance.
