Spyderco 40th Anniversary Native 5 Damascus and Carbon Fiber
Item #: SPC41CF40AN
Sprint Run Limited to 1200 Pieces
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the founding of their company, Spyderco® has produced a knife that is truly extraordinary, yet quintessentially Spyderco. They chose the Spyderco Native 5, the 5th generation evolution of the Classic Native model, then upgraded the material and manufacturing methods to create something outstanding.
The signature 3" spear point blade is Damasteel® Thor™ pattern martensitic Damascus from Sweden. This material is produced by Damasteel's proprietary powder metallurgy process, which forge welds layers of RWL34 and PMC27 steels into a state of the art stainless Damascus steel. After the blade is precision machined and full-flat ground to its final form, it is acid etched to reveal the intricate layering pattern and then laser engraved with the 40th anniversary logo.
The handle sides are precision machined solid carbon fiber with a machined fluted pattern. Threaded stainless steel inserts nested into the back of each side allows for the attachment of the four-position pocket clip. A lockback, it measures 4" closed and weighs 2.7 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail is $599.95.
In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.
Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
