SP41PBK5: C41PBK5 Native 5 Lightweight
The Native 5 Lightweight is one of Spyderco's all-time great designs, now made even better with lightweight FRN handles and premium S30V cutlery steel. Created with the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, this super steel offers greater performance than traditionally made steels. 

The leaf shaped blade of the Native 5 features a full flat grind (preferred by many for its slicing performance) and a full length swedge to aid in cutting efficiency by reducing drag during use. It opens easily thanks to Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole, and a strong back lock keeps it secure during use.

To ensure easy carry of this superlative EDC knife, Spyderco has equipped the Native 5 with lightweight and strong FRN handles. Bi-directional texturing provides all the grip you need, even in wet or grimy environments. Thanks to jimping and an integrated finger choil that extends usable handle length, the user can choke up on the blade for fine control of the Native's acute point. A four-position stainless steel clip, allowing for a multitude of carry options completes this lightweight Spyderco Native 5.

My favorite knife
I need a light duty EDC that is easy to carry, has a good blade and a secure grip, and can be choked-up on when you work carefully. The Native checks my boxes.The FRN model is strong and stiff enough to allow you to forgo the heavier built version.

Slicing Machine!
I think that this is probably the best Spyderco pocket knife on the market when all things are taken into consideration. For roughly $100 it is a very big upgrade from a standard Delica with VG10. The ergonomics are amazing, and its thin flat grind blade will just cut all day long. It is so lightweight that it literally will disappear in your pocket. I have several Spyderco pocket knives...but I generally reach for the Native 5. Its amazing.

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.
