Native 5 - Black G-10 / CRU-WEAR
This distinctive version of Spyderco’s best-selling Native 5 features a unique combination of Crucible’s CPM Cru-Wear and smooth Black G-10 handle scales.
This limited production version of C41GPCW5 Native 5 supercharges its advanced design with a full-flat-ground blade crafted from Crucible’s CPM Cru-Wear. CPM Cru-Wear steel is an air-hardened powdered metallurgy tool steel. Crucible’s original smelted-produced Cru-Wear was created as an upgrade to A2 and D2 tool steels that both have earned longevity and respect in the cutlery business for their wear resistance and tough cutting performance. Through powdered steel technology, the steel is made easier to machine with improved resistance to chipping over the original ingot Cru-Wear. The powdered variety also attains a higher hardness factor through greater percentages of tungsten and molybdenum that result in a secondary hardening response.
The smooth matte G-10 handle scales of this version of the Native 5 sport are a tactical black color. They are also home to a four-position hourglass clip that supports left and right-side, tip-up carry.
