Released in November 2013, is a C41PBN Native Lightweight with a brown FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle manufactured exclusively for KnifeCenter. An internet resource for cutlery, shaving, and security products, KnifeCenter opened in 1995 and is was the first internet retailer to offer Spyderco products for sale via the world wide web.
The KnifeCenter Brown Native Lightweight manufactured in Golden, Colorado. Its spear-point blade is made of CTS-XHP steel; produced using powdered-metallurgy technology by Carpenter Steel Inc. Carpenter powdered steels offer an elevated amount of carbon that appreciably improves edge retention and strength. Native blades are bisected by two clear-cut grinds: A performance boosting hollow-grind and a weight-reducing swedge grind, giving the blade a unique appearance.
Incorporated into the brown fiberglass reinforced nylon handle is a pattern called Bi-Directional Texturing, comprised of a succession of graduating steps radiating outward from the handle's center. The steps grip the palm to generate friction and resistance, and enhances the folder's slip-resistance even in a cold or wet gripped hand. Mid-positioned on the handle's spine is a back lock for ambidextrous one-handed opening/closing and it features the added safety of a David Boye Dent on the lock release, keeping the blade from unintentionally unlocking while being used. The handle comes equipped with a silver steel clip which positions the folder ambidextrously with the blade tip facing upward when clipped inside a pant's pocket.
Spyderco's Native Lightweight is a winner in Spyderco's USA-made product line and remains one of the best selling lightweight CLIPITS.
