Spyderco Native 5 Lightweight Cobalt Blue FRN CPM SPY27 C41PCBL5
The Native has been a flagship model of the Spyderco US production line since its release in 1997 and evolved over the years to the current iteration, the Native 5. This Lightweight version has all the same great features with the weight-saving advantages of an injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle reducing the overall weight to just 2.5 ounces. A highly advanced progression of an iconic design, the Native 5 Lightweight is an optimal cutting tool for everyday carry and use. This version comes with Cobalt Blue FRN handles and a plain edge blade in Spyderco's Proprietary CPM-SPY27 stainless steel.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, USA.
Blade: A classic, flat ground spear point profile is executed with a subtle upper swedge for all-around utility. Flat ground for slicing performance, the blade has a fine satin finish with Jimping on the spine and index choil for optimal traction in the hand. Generously sized to accommodate larger hands, the familiar, ambidextrous Spyderco Round Hole opener is simple and easy to use. CPM SPY25 was developed by Spyderco to offer well-balanced performance for daily use.
Handle: Lightweight, durable and weatherproof Cobalt Blue fiberglass reinforced nylon makes this knife a dream to carry. Reliable and built for serious use in mind the Native 5 lightweight is equipped with Spyderco's trademarked Bi-Directional texturing for a sure grip and a beefy mid-back lock that is smooth to operate, ambidextrous and rock solid.
Carries via a 4-position hourglass pocket clip with through lanyard hole.
