Out of stock


The Native lineage has become legendary in Spyderco lore with its iconic spear blade, prominent finger choil and dependable back lock. This Lil Native is the smallest yet with all the noticeable features users have come to know and love, but with a few twists. This Compression Lock variation comes with black G10 handle scales, a black DLC coated S30V plain edge blade and matching hardware and liners.

Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives.

CQI: Liners are all black.

Blade: Fully flat ground CPM-S30V comes with a durable, discreet and corrosion resistant black DLC coating and clean slicing plain edge. The classic spear point is scaled down to under 2.5 inches for carry in less permissive regions. A trademark Round Hole delivers ambidextrous operation with smooth, phosphor bronze washer action. The generous forward choil gives a full four finger grip for optimal leverage and control on this compact daily carry folder.

Handle: Inset skeletonized steel liners support peel ply textured G10 scales in a compact yet comfortable grip with a lightweight, easy to clean open back construction. One of the liners forms the high strength Compression Lock mechanism delivering smooth operation and solid lockup for safe use.

Carries via a reversible stainless steel deep carry wire clip.

CPM-S30V: A PM stainless steel developed specifically for use in knife blades, S30V has good wear resistance (edge retention) and corrosion resistance, better than 440C or 420HC. The powdered process refines the grain, improving performance for a balanced blade steel. Toughness is comparable to other PM stainless steels.

Compression Lock: Similar in construction to the Walker Liner Lock, the Compression lock uses a leaf style spring cut into the handle liner. The tang of the spring wedges between the blade tang and stop pin (or anvil pin) for exceptional lock strength, ease of operation and added safety, keeping fingers clear of the blade path during disengagement closing of the knife.
