The Spyderco Native 5 has been a best-seller ever since 1997. Characteristic about the Native 5 is the solid lock. The spring on the backlock can easily be opened on the one hand, on the other it will securely lock the blade when opened. This also provides a little resistance when opening the knife.
The S30V steel blade is enhanced with a full-flat grind. This means that the blade has a flat grind from the spine to the edge. S30V steel is a solid type of steel that can handle quite a lot. It is therefore not that surprising that Spyderco uses it for a lot of their knives. This version of the Native 5 is extra cool because of the black coating. This gives the knife a tough look and feel.
