The black G10 handle harbors dual skeletonized liners, a full-length back spacer and a back lock. First introduced to the knife industry decades ago, back locks have undergone many refinements and through better manufacturing techniques are among the safest and easiest locking systems to operate. Today's American-made back-locks have better self-closing ability, smoother action, solid lock-up and ease-in push-release opening for a higher caliber of lock.
Implementation of the Bushing Pivot System on the Native 5 improves the blade's open/close fluidity while the folder itself is constructed with larger-sized torx screws for simple adjustments and tightening. A four-way, transport-friendly, hourglass pocket clip can be positioned for tip-up/tip-down and left-/ or right-handed carry with a hole through the center of the clip ready for threading a thong or lanyard.
Spyderco's Native 5 showcases the maturation of American knifemaking techniques and how today's modern folders are sharper, smoother and better performing knives than their early back lock predecessors.
