To commemorate Spyderco's 40th anniversary, they decided to make a knife that is truly extraordinary, yet quintessentially Spyderco. Spyderco began with the Native 5--a highly evolved fifth generation version of the tried-and-true Native model. They then pushed the envelope of materials and craftsmanship with a blade made of DS93X Thor pattern martensitic Damascus steel from the Swedish firm Damasteel. This extraordinary 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 with an intricate pattern. The blade is laser engraved with the 40th anniversary logo and paired with a stunning handle featuring CNC-machined, fluted carbon fiber scales. The Native 5's signature four-position pocket clip provides convenient, versatile carry and pays homage to Spyderco's pioneering role in creating the modern clip-carried folding knife.
