SP41GP5: C41GP5 Native 5

The Native 5 represents an evolution in American knifemaking with a bold G10 handle and nitrogen-hardened CPM S35VN blade. 

The Native 5 is Spyderco's first production folder made using Crucible Inc. powdered technology CPM S35VN steel. Its flat-ground blade is PlainEdged with a weight reducing spine-swedge made using CPM S35VN. The steel is similarly structured to Crucible's CPM S30V but with the addition of niobium (columbium) carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Niobium makes steel tougher while improving its resistance to wear and chipping and offers improved edge retention over basic smelted high-chromium steels.

First introduced to the knife industry decades ago, back locks have undergone many refinements and through better manufacturing techniques are among the safest and easiest locking systems to operate. Today's American-made back-locks have better self-closing ability, smoother action, solid lock-up and ease-in push-release opening for a higher caliber of lock.

Implementation of the Bushing Pivot System on the Native 5 improves the blade's open/close fluidity while the folder itself is constructed with larger-sized torx screws for simple adjustments and tightening

A four-way, transport-friendly, hourglass pocket clip can be positioned for tip-up/tip-down and left-/ or right-handed carry with a hole through the center of the clip ready for threading a thong or lanyard. 

Spyderco's Native 5 showcases the maturation of American knifemaking techniques and how today's modern folders are sharper, smoother and better performing knives than their early back lock predecessors.

Pros: Weight, Blade Material, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Carried Native 5 for about a year and a half. Used for wacking at blackberry vines. Cutting chores such as cardboard, aluminum cans and various woods. (Maple, Pine, Cedar, Oak )Built traps with it though it’s not narrow enough for the task it did get the job done. I split 4” seasoned oak with it. (Battening) She pulled it off without a hitch and stay sharp enough to cut paper afterwards. No bends or chips. What I do have to say is I’m good at knife jobs and I suspect this is why the tip survived. If treated as a survival knife the tip could not make it. But I will say the lock never flinched. And the handle never gave me a moments thought about blisters.

Spyderco C41GP5 Native 5 an exceptional buy!
I carry a knife in my pocket every day. It is an extremely useful tool that I use to around the home, shop and ranch many times every day. Opening boxes and grain bags, cutting bailing twine and rope, removing foil seals from fluid bottles, trimming hoses and tubing to the desired length and cutting-up cardboard containers for disposal are just a few among the many uses. This knife is well built, has a secure blade lock and operates smoothly. The textured handle allows a full, secure grip and the blade holds an edge better than most of the other knives I have used on a daily-carry basis. Anyone wanting a sturdy EDC (every day carry) knife would do well to choose this one, and Knife Center is a great organization to buy it from.
