Description
SP41GPCW5: C41GPCW5 KnifeCenter Exclusive Native 5
Spyderco

The defining feature of this elite version of the Native 5 is its blade, which is precision machined from CPM CRU-WEAR — an air-hardening tool steel specially formulated to offer both superior wear resistance and toughness. Created by Crucible Industries, CRU-WEAR's unique alloy composition allows it to excel in applications that require greater wear resistance than D2, more toughness than M2 high-speed steel, or both. The CRU-WEAR used in the blade of this knife is further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which ensures an ultra-fine, highly homogeneous grain structure that maximizes the performance potential of the steel. In a knife blade, that translates to amazing toughness and the ability to take and hold an outstanding edge.

Proudly featuring a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening the blade of this knife is full-flat ground and satin-finished for superior edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It is housed in a linerless handled constructed with smooth black G10 scales and supported by a high-strength lockback mechanism. Threaded inserts in the scales provide a solid anchor for the knife's four-position hourglass pocket clip, which allows left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.

Showcasing both an enhanced CRU-WEAR blade and a distinctive smooth G10 handle, this KnifeCenter Exclusive version of the Spyderco Native 5 is sure to be highly sought after by discriminating users and collectors alike.

Native 5
The Native 5 is one of my favorite Spyderco models, and this is my third one (LW in Maxamet, blue G10 in S110V). My focus is US- and foreign-made folders so this version was welcomed to my collection. I will be carrying this one after switching to a deep-carry clip; my one complaint about the Native 5 is the amount of handle left above the pocket although the factory clip is more comfortable than deep carry. I also have the Manix 2 with smooth G10 and CruWear, and this steel is incredible and sharpens to a super edge. The scales feel great in hand and I love the smooth texture. This is a beautifully finished knife with premium materials and I would recommend it to anyone.

My perfect Spyderco
What's not to love? Smooth G10 that doesn't eat pockets, no liners so it only weighs a bit more than the Native LW and Cru-Wear blade. In my opinion this takes everything good about Spyderco and condenses it down in one knife, which also happens to be my favorite model. To top it off fit and finish are excellent and it came mean sharp out of the box with a surprisingly even factory grind. I may just buy another.

Native 5 Cru-Wear
This knife came sharp like most Spyderco knives and the native 5 is a great EDC knife matched with Cru-Wear which has been a great performer. Love the feel of the smooth G-10, however I find it a bit troublesome at first because the lock up was so tight that closing it with one hand and smooth G-10 made it a bit difficult. As you can see I didn't knock it down a star because I still love this knife and it has smoothed out some, it's still a lock back so not the most fidget friendly knife, but still a fun quality work knife that I can recommended. The price is great also since the S30V version is pretty much the same, worth checking out if you haven't ever used Cru-wear before and were interested.
