Native 5- White FRN / CPM REX 45
This limited-edition of Spyderco’s Native 5 most defining feature is its blade, which is precision machined from 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. Equally unique, the knife’s lightweight handle is injection molded from white fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN). The clip, lock bar, and all other handle hardware are satin finished to complement the knife’s satin blade.
