SP41PBK5: C41PBK5 Native 5 Lightweight
The original Native 5 was an evolution of refinements in knifemaking with a bold G-10 handle and nitrogen-hardened CPM-S35VN blade. The Native 5 Lightweight is the same knife but with FRN handles. The blade is PlainEdged and flat ground with a weight reducing spine-swedge grind. CPM-S35VN is similarly structured to Crucible's CPM-S30V but with the addition of niobium (columbium) carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Niobium makes the steel tougher while enhancing resistance to wear and chipping and improves edge retention over basic smelted high-chromium steels. The Native 5’s back-lock embodies the steps of evolution in traditional back-locks. Back-locks were first introduced to the knife industry decades ago, transforming into more sophisticated, safer locks through improved manufacturing techniques. Today’s American made back-locks offer improved self-close, smooth action, solid lock-up and ease in push-release opening for a higher caliber of knife buyer in today’s market. Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System on the Native 5 generates fluid action and consistent manufacturing tolerances. A four-way transport-friendly hourglass pocket clip adjusts to carry tip-up/tip-down and left or right-handed with a lanyard hole incorporated through the center of the clip where it attaches to the handle. The folder is fabricated with screw-together construction using larger sized torq screws, easier to adjust and tighten. The Native 5 represents the maturation of American knifemaking capabilities in making everything sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and overall user comfort.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Fabulous to Carry and Use
This knife has pretty much thrown out all my other common EDC choices, since it arrived. I have small to medium hands, and it just melts into them. It is feather light in the pocket, and yet the FRN seems strong enough for most use. I personally find the FRN a little slick compared to G10, so only gave this knife 4 stars. It has seen light duties, cardboard and other packaging, since arriving, but the blade steel seems the best I own. It is said to be fine with a 15 dps edge, so that is how I sharpened it, and it is crazy sharp. Amazing slicer. Extremely comfortable knife to carry and use, it has tipped out my Endura, PM2 and Tenacious, which were my most common carries before this. Very glad I pulled the trigger on this knife.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
A nice tool, good quality, good steel.
I use it as an EDC, for gardening, at work by EMS. It seems to be e precise, strong pocket tool. Pros: - lightweight, flat, small - superbe, precise quality and finish - good steel, cuts similar to 1095, but harder to wear, but needs more precision in getting scharp again Cons: - a terribe, thick, disturbing clip. Went off at once.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
This is an excellent knife.
I use this knife to carry to the office, work around the house or hang out on weekends. It is a great general knife. The blade takes and holds an exceptional edge. The knife is light in weight yet not flimsy. Also, the handle fits my large hands well but at the cost of some blade length. Overall, I love this knife!
