Crafted with Spyderco's signature dark blue, textured G10 handle scales and an ultra-sharp CPM-S110V stainless steel blade, this Native 5 folding knife delivers impeccable performance with a sleek, understated design.
The full-flat grind, distal taper, and textured index-finger choil and thumb ramp make for a comfortable grip, while the knife's unique swedge adds a distinctive style. Thanks to its refined back lock mechanism, this knife provides secure, reliable blade lockup.
The G10 handle scales feature four sets of threaded inserts, which allow the hourglass clip to be moved for customizable left/right-side tip-up or down carry. Weighing only 3.7 ounces, the knife is lightweight and easy to carry around.
With a blade length of 2.95 inches and an overall length of 6.95 inches, the Native 5 fits comfortably in your pocket and is ready for action when you need it.
Proudly manufactured in the USA, the Spyderco Native 5, 3" S110V Plain Blade, Dark Blue G10 Handle is a top-quality knife you can count on.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
