Spyderco Knives

As a manufacturer of ergonomic hard-working knives, Spyderco has few rivals. It's been said our R&D team "designs in the dark", meaning function and comfort outweigh prettiness any day. More than anything, this earned Spyderco a reputation for making hardworking knives that seem to end up in your EDC rotation more than other knives.

Case in point is the Native III. Filling the hand with ergonomic comfort is a Bi-Directional textured handle molded of FRN. Dips and valleys on the handle's surface provide spots and textures the palm can grab onto. Separate expansion points along the underside of the handle: one behind the cutting edge, followed by another on the handle and a curve at the butt-end, work in concert keeping the hand firmly positioned and lessening cutting fatigue. The VG-10 blade tapers to a spear-point with a distinct swedge-grind that reduces weight and adds overall balance. Non-sharpened serrations along the spine keep the thumb planted securely while cutting or chopping. An ambidextrous tension wire clip is easy on a cloth pocket and positions the folder for tip-up carry.
