SP41GPCW5: C41GPCW5 KnifeCenter Exclusive Native 5

The defining feature of this elite version of the Native 5 is its blade, which is precision machined from CPM CRU-WEAR — an air-hardening tool steel specially formulated to offer both superior wear resistance and toughness. Created by Crucible Industries, CRU-WEAR's unique alloy composition allows it to excel in applications that require greater wear resistance than D2, more toughness than M2 high-speed steel, or both. The CRU-WEAR used in the blade of this knife is further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which ensures an ultra-fine, highly homogeneous grain structure that maximizes the performance potential of the steel. In a knife blade, that translates to amazing toughness and the ability to take and hold an outstanding edge.

Proudly featuring a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening the blade of this knife is full-flat ground and satin-finished for superior edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It is housed in a linerless handled constructed with smooth black G10 scales and supported by a high-strength lockback mechanism. Threaded inserts in the scales provide a solid anchor for the knife's four-position hourglass pocket clip, which allows left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.

Showcasing both an enhanced CRU-WEAR blade and a distinctive smooth G10 handle, this KnifeCenter Exclusive version of the Spyderco Native 5 is sure to be highly sought after by discriminating users and collectors alike.

Great variation of a tried and true classic
I have the other three KnifeCenter smooth G10 with Cruwear Spyderco's, so I had to get this one when I saw it drop. I really like the smooth G10 scales. They are very comfortable in hand, and slide in and out of the pocket great.Personally, I don't find it to be slippery, and the ergos of most Spyderco's lock the knife in hand anyway, so I have yet to have a problem with the smooth G10. I wasn't disappointed when I got it in hand. The fit and finish is spot on, blade perfectly centered, and as smooth an action as your likely to get with a back lock. Cruwear is an excellent choice for blade steel. It takes a nice keen edge, and holds it for quite awhile. It's become one of my favorite knife steels. I carry a Native when I go downtown, where we have a 3" carry limit, and as a backup to either my PM2 or Manix 2 when not where that limit applies. It's an excellent knife, and pretty much sheeple friendly. Although I generally prefer to carry a blade 3.25 to 3.5 inches long, the Native is fine for most everyday tasks, and I sometimes find myself grabbing one for my main carry for the day. It performs above it's weight and size class imho. Just a good solid all around performer. KnifeCenter has knocked it out of the park with this series of exclusives in my opinion.
