Spyderco C41GP5 Native 5 Folding Knife 3" S35VN Satin Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles
SP41GP5: C41GP5 Native 5
The Native 5 represents an evolution in American knifemaking with a bold G10 handle and nitrogen-hardened CPM S35VN blade.
The Native 5 is Spyderco's first production folder made using Crucible Inc. powdered technology CPM S35VN steel. Its flat-ground blade is PlainEdged with a weight reducing spine-swedge made using CPM S35VN. The steel is similarly structured to Crucible's CPM S30V but with the addition of niobium (columbium) carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Niobium makes steel tougher while improving its resistance to wear and chipping and offers improved edge retention over basic smelted high-chromium steels.
The black G10 handle harbors dual skeletonized liners, a full-length back spacer and a back lock. First introduced to the knife industry decades ago, back locks have undergone many refinements and through better manufacturing techniques are among the safest and easiest locking systems to operate. Today's American-made back-locks have better self-closing ability, smoother action, solid lock-up and ease-in push-release opening for a higher caliber of lock.
Implementation of the Bushing Pivot System on the Native 5 improves the blade's open/close fluidity while the folder itself is constructed with larger-sized torx screws for simple adjustments and tightening
A four-way, transport-friendly, hourglass pocket clip can be positioned for tip-up/tip-down and left-/ or right-handed carry with a hole through the center of the clip ready for threading a thong or lanyard.
Spyderco's Native 5 showcases the maturation of American knifemaking techniques and how today's modern folders are sharper, smoother and better performing knives than their early back lock predecessors.

The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
