Due to the very limited nature of this item and its high demand, it will not be available to order until we know our allotment from Spyderco. We will be announcing its availability via Instagram and our website.
Since its original release in 1997, the Native has been a mainstay of the Spyderco product line and a shining example of Spyderco's American-made quality and innovation. Now in its fifth generation of design, the current Native 5 proudly reflects their tireless commitment to Constant Quality Improvement (C.Q.I.) by boasting a number of significant design and engineering advances.
This knife's ergonomic handle features a solid stainless steel backspacer and textured G10 scales. This linerless construction style reduces weight, while ensuring impressive structural strength and solid support for the knife's highly refined lockback mechanism. The product of extensive research, development, and testing, the Native 5's lockback redefines the state-of-the-art in the engineering and execution of this elegantly simple mechanism. It offers increased strength, an exceptionally smooth action, an improved self-close function, and even greater resistance to wear and tear than previous versions.
The blade of this Sprint Run Native 5 is crafted from CPM-REX 45 tool steel and features a full-flat grind, a distal taper, and an understated swedge that combine to offer both a distinctive appearance and exceptional edge geometry. A forefinger choil also supports the option of a "choked up" forward grip for increased leverage and control during use. To ensure swift, positive opening with either hand, the blade includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole. This feature complements the lockback and stout four-position hourglass clip to make all aspects of the Native 5's carry, deployment, and operation completely ambidextrous.
CPM-REX 45 Sprint Run
Crucible CPM-REX 45 is a super-high-speed particle metallurgy tool steel enriched with large volumes of cobalt, tungsten, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its high cobalt content increases the steel’s attainable hardness and enhances the positive properties of steel's other alloys. The addition of vanadium promotes the formation of vanadium carbides, which provide high wear resistance, fine grain size, and increased toughness. A true steel connoisseur’s blade material, REX 45 is an ideal steel for this prestigious Sprint Run series being produced in Spyderco's USA factory. To further distinguish this unique family, all REX 45-bladed models feature a distinctive burnt-orange handle color.
Spyderco Sprint Runs are limited edition production runs of items not found in Spyderco's standard product line. They may be unique versions of current knives or special expressions of discontinued designs. Every Sprint Run is a unique, one-time-only event. Once that knife is sold out it will not be produced again in that exact form.
