Description

Description

This Native 5 has a lightweight black FRN handle and a full-flat ground S30V steel blade. The handle on the Native is patterned with two separate finger choils. The first choil, where the blade and handle meet, allow positioning the index finger closer to the knife's sharpened edge for control over the cutting surface. Behind the first choil, the second positions the hand farther back on the folder for dexterous cutting while pushing the blade away from you. Bi-Directional Texturing molded into the FRN handle form varying levels of steps minimizing forward or backward sliding. 4-way reversible pocket clip for ambidextrous carry.

This knife designed and built by Spyderco, is one of the most lightweight and user friendly knives Iíve ever owned. Weighing slightly under 3 ounces, you will be hard pressed to find a knife with this much useability that weighs less.
Just a great knife

It should be noted that my Spyderco Native 5 LW is the S35VN model, but honestly, the blade steel isn't what makes this knife so incredible to me (well it is partially, but S30V would probably give me the same mind blowing step up from my previous knife's 15N20).

What's great is the form of this knife. It's lightweight and easy to carry. It meets my needs of being one hand open-able and close-able. It actually flicks open which is just awesome for a back lock. I like back locks because I can operate them with gloves on, so it's nice that this knife has one. The pattern on the FRN provides good grip. The ergonomics are just great. The blade has a tall flat grind that makes it pretty good at slicing in spite of it's relative beefiness.

Just... I love this knife. Can't recommend it enough. Maybe a CPM-20CV model is what the next sprint run should be? Or maybe I should keep saving my money to get the fluted carbon fiber model.

I bought the Native 5 LW a little over a year ago. Since then it has been my most carried knife. Easily beating out some of my more expensive knives for pocket time. Prior to buying the Native 5 LW, I had the inability to carry the same knife for more than two days back to back. Now I have a hard time justifying carrying anything else. To me the ergonomics are second to none and it practically disappears in my pocket. I work in an office and don't notice this knife wearing a suit or khakis. It's also the perfect blade size for me. Any bigger would be too big and any smaller would be too small. On thing to note, is I have the S35VN version.

The Native 5 LW is a great knife. The ergonomics make it melt into my hand and the frn makes it disappear in my pocket. You won't know it is there. For me it is a perfect knife.
Good Little Knife

It's a slick little blade. Good HANDLE feel. The ONLY flaw is if you're push cutting through something, the finger groove on the blade catches, but it's not that big of a deal.

Be aware of the fact that Spyderco is moving this knife to S30V steel according to the March 2018 Byte news bulletin. Ask for S35VN steel while supplies last if you want it but there is not much difference in the steels according to Spyderco. The knife in either steel is a very robust and lightweight affair. Very happy with BladeHQís return service and friendliness on the phone.

I have carried my Native for years and it always held an edge even in hard use. EDC to my USMC days all the way up to when I broke the tip during misuse. It would still be in my EDC rotation if I had the blade repaired.

The Native 5 LW was my first Spyderco Purchase, and will certainly not be my last (already eye-balling a manix 2Ö). The knife was flawless out of the box, with superb fit and finish and a razor-sharp blade. The 3 inch flat ground blade is perfect for a variety of EDC tasks, from food prep to breaking down cardboard boxes. The s35vn blade steel also makes for a great EDC knife, as it holds its edge very well and can be resharpened easily with the right methods and materials. Although I tend to shy away from knives with fiberglass reinforced nylon or plastic handles, the handle on the Native 5 felt surprisingly solid. The bi-directional texturing offers a secure grip when removing the knife from the pocket and during use. Using the forward finger choil, the knife fits perfectly in my medium sized hands. At 2.45 oz, the knife carries extremely lightly, and you almost forget its there. The action was a little stiff at first, but has improved with regular cycling and a little bit of lubrication. A very good first experience with the brand.
Fantastic Knife

Without a doubt, this is one of preeminent EDC's out there. Strong lock, great ergonomics, great steel and lightweight. There are simply just too many good things to say about it. Plus if your into taking your knives apart, this is one of the most simple ones to work with. I honestly can't think of a negative thing to say about the Native. At some point I plan on putting some micarta scales on mine. Don't hesitate to buy this guy. If I really had only one choice to carry a knife the Spyderco Native would be it.

I have carried a Spyderco, one gen or another, for the last 7 years. It is a great EDC knife. It's not scary, big enough for most tasks and it's a great deal for s35vn. I would recommend it to a friend, or a stranger.
Perfect Pocket Pal

What a knife. This thing is my go to knife out of the dozens that I own. Super lightweight, great steel, perfect jimping, amazing ergonomics, awesome choil, and a low price.

It doesnít get better than this.

I will say that spudercoís approach to the lightweight model isnít for everyone. There are no liners, which is completely fine as the knife is plenty rigid. And there are no washers, bearings or anything of the sort. The blade glides on raised portions of the frn. The action is surprisingly smooth considering this, but itíll never be a silky smooth knife, which shouldnít be expected from a back lock anyway!

11/10 buy it now!

I usually change knives every 3 or 4 months cuz I like to, and I thought I would try a Spyderco. Sharp right out of the box and it stayed sharp! Sadly, I lost this one, something grabbed the clip and it fell out of my pocket. Rest assured, I'll be getting another USA made Spyderco!

Love this knife. There is a reason I ordered another within hours of losing the first one on a hike. Razor sharp is easily reached, and holds it like a pair of vice-grips.

I've had the lightweight for about 6 months now. And I have to say it has become my favorite EDC blade. Came Razor sharp and stayed razor sharp for a good while. The S35VN steel does take time to resharpen back to razor sharpness. But it is not to difficult with the right sharpener. I find myself carrying it more than my Griptillian, paramilitary 2, and kershaw skyline. You dont even notice it in pocket and the Ergos in hand feel great. I highly recommend picking this knife up. It is just one heck of a blade.
Very nice EDC knife

First of all, I'm left handed and carry my EDC knives in my left pocket, so some of my review won't apply to everyone. I carried a Kershaw Camber for several months and really wanted to like it. It's a great knife in most respects. However, the tip-up-only carry and essentially non-reversible pocket clip really made it difficult to safely carry left handed. After several holes in my pocket and a pretty good cut on my hand, it was time for something else.

I picked up a Spyderco Native-5 lightweight a few weeks ago and have been really happy with it. I prefer EDC knives in the 3" blade length range. I have larger hands and have no issues with the smaller handle whether using the finger choil on the blade or not. Blade shape is good. Deployment has more friction than other Spydercos I own, but I don't usually flick blades open anyway. It has a very solid looking lock. I like the CPM-s35vn steel so far. Sharpening has never really been an issue for me (I use diamond stones and 1200 and 2000 grit sandpaper), but it's significantly easier to reprofile the s35vn than s30v or ZDP-189. I carried a Delica for a long time, but didn't really like the relative lack of edge holding of the VG-10. Typical use for me is deburring or shaping wood, cutting glue off wood, food prep, and infrequent box cutting.
