The Spyderco Native 5 Salt C41PYL 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 blade has been enhanced with a full flat grind. This means that the blade has a flat grind from the spine to the edge.
This version of the Native 5 is enhanced with LC200N steel. This is a remarkable stainless type of steel. Incredibly practical when you use the knife a lot around (salt) water. LC200N-steel is also easy to sharpen.
