Native 5 - Burnt Orange FRN / CPM REX 45
Crucible CPM REX 45 is a super-high-speed particle metallurgy tool steel enriched with large volumes of cobalt, tungsten, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its high cobalt content increases the steel’s attainable hardness and enhances the positive properties of steel’s other alloys. The addition of vanadium promotes the formation of vanadium carbides, which provide high wear resistance, fine grain size, and increased toughness. A true steel connoisseur’s blade material, REX 45 is an ideal steel for this prestigious Sprint Run series being produced in Spyderco’s USA factory. To further distinguish this unique family, all REX 45-bladed models feature a distinctive burnt-orange handle color.
