Spyderco Native 5 C41PBOR5 - DLC Black CPM-S90V Blade - Orange FRN Handle

Our longtime customers and collectors know we have a "thing" for orange, which is an addiction that many of our customers seem to share. This latest Cutlery Shoppe exclusive, our first on the Native platform, is the result of many customer requests.

Blade deployment is super fast thanks to Spyderco’s signature Trademark Round Hole™ for easy, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The Native 5 Lightweight features an FFG (full flat grind) blade crafted from premium CPM S90V stainless steel with a durable, non-reflective Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. This advanced particle metallurgy steel is enriched with a high vanadium content to promote the formation of hard vanadium carbides instead of chromium carbides. Explained more plainly, this enhances the steel’s wear resistance and edge retention, while also providing superior corrosion resistance.

Since first introduced in 1997, the Native has been a mainstay of the Spyderco product line and a flagship of their American-made stable of knives. The design has evolved steadily over the years, reaching its current state of the art in 2012 with the release of the Native 5. The latest addition to the Native lineage is the Native5 Lightweight, which combines the Native5’s engineering refinements with the weight-saving advantages of an injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle. The linerless FRN handle features Bi-Directional Texturing™ for an ultra-secure grip and reduces the overall weight of the knife to a scant 2.4 ounces. The handle also houses four sets of threaded inserts molded directly into the FRN. These allow the improved hourglass clip to be positioned for left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry. A generously sized lanyard hole also provides a handy attachment point for lanyards, fobs, and safety lines.

    This is a great edc knife. Solid lockback design with the extremely light and grippy frn scales. The CPM S90V comes ridiculously sharp and features that awesome blacked out look. The orange scales combined with the black blade looks incredible. Definitely my favorite color combo. Thanks Cutlery Shoppe for the great customer service!

    Perfect EDC

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 22nd 2018

    I have been wanting a Native 5 for a long time. When I saw this beautiful orange and black combo, I had to buy it. The DLC coating is some of the best in the business, and the s90v is outstanding. As much as i like the Para military 2 and the Manix 2, this is a perfect sized med small blade. The frame fits the hand very well and the choil is prefect for choking up. You cannot go wrong with the Native 5

    I usually veer away from lock-backs, but this knife is awesome.

    Native 5 Orange/Black

    Posted by Kevin H on Feb 3rd 2018

    First, let it be said that the Cutlery Shoppe provides first-class service all the way. Great folks to deal with.

    Spyderco's Native 5 series of knives are all superb. They are lightweight and compact, yet durable and strong. I live in a state with literally no knife laws, so one can carry anything one wants. I prefer this model because of its size and weight. Just because it's small, don't think that it can't handle big jobs.

    This particular model is even nicer. The orange and black colors jump out at you and scream to be noticed. These are so sharp that they will cut you if you stare at them long enough. They are also made in America, a great feature.

    Combining the Cutlery Shoppe's great service with Spyderco's quality and solid commitment to the buyer, you simply can't go wrong.

    Spyderco C41PBOR5 Native 5 Orange/Black S90V

    Posted by Christopher on Dec 15th 2017

    I first saw this knife on a Facebook group page's member post, and I immediately fell in love with its aesthetics. The orange and black coloring made me have to have this knife. I had never even held a Native 5 before ordering this one. I missed out on the first run, and was very disappointed. Luckily, I was able to order one on Black Friday. When I received it, I anxiously removed it and immediately started playing with it. I was a little disappointed at first, but mostly because I had built it up so much in my mind, and it was less than awe inspiring in person. However, as I held it, carried it, and used it, I absolutely have fallen in love with everything this knife has to offer. It was stupid sharp out the box, and has retained its edge well so far. The ergonomics of this knife are just about perfect for my hand size. I find that I feel comfortable applying lots of pressure on whatever I'm cutting, because I don't feel like my hand could possibly slip on the FRN, choil, nor spine. This is a very well designed knife, and this color/steel/coating combination is absolutely amazing. I can honestly recommend this knife for anyone to use every day for any task. I like it so much, I would absolutely buy another one or two for myself or for (lucky) friends or family.

    Must Have

    Cuttlery Shoppe does it again! Yeah, I got a thing for orange and black also and this version is truly awesome! It does really pop and just makes me smile to hold it in hand. Yeah, it was stiff at first but it loosens up after so many flicks and has been a joy to handle. Reviews on Native ergonomics, steel and functionality are all true - great knife! Easy 5-star - damn good value!
