For this drop, we’ve partnered with Spyderco to offer an exclusive selection of the company's best-selling Native 5 models, as well as a few extras. By joining, you’ll at least receive a classic plain-edge Spyderco Native 5 with black lightweight FRN handle. But you’ll also have a chance to receive an upgraded version of the Native 5 with premium handle materials and blade steels, plus additional prizes that will be unlocked as more members join the drop (see below). Good luck!
Note: This drop is limited to 350 total units. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are only able to ship certain knives to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
Originally released in 1997, the Native 5 is arguably Spyderco’s most ergonomic folder. The handle features two prominent curves: one a finger choil for choking up, the other towards the butt of the handle for finger placement when tackling more strenuous tasks. It locks firmly with the built-in back lock. No matter your carry style, the Native 5 has you covered thanks to its four-way clip, too. The blade is made from CPM-S35VN—an enhanced version of CPM-S30V, which was praised as the most impressive blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. CPM-S35VN is 20 percent tougher thanks to the addition of niobium. Renowned for its edge retention and resistance to corrosion, S35VN's performance rivals the most expensive blade steels on the market.
Fifty percent of those who join are guaranteed to receive a Spyderco Native 5 with FRN handle, but thirty-five percent will be lucky winners of an upgrade. For the sake of surprise, and to protect our members' privacy, we do not announce the winners publicly. Upgrades will be assigned to orders by means of a random number generator in the following proportions:
We’ll also be offering other prizes, in addition to the possibility for an upgrade, as more members join the drop. Every purchase counts as an individual entry for these prizes. There are a total of five possible additional prizes, and each is unlocked when the respective number of units is purchased.
