This Native 5 model has a lightweight gray FRN handle and a full-flat ground Micro-Melt Maxamet alloy steel blade. Maxamet is a complex steel alloy that offers unprecedented toughness and edge retention.
The Native 5 features a patterned FRN handle 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 handle form varying levels of steps minimizing forward or backward sliding. A 4-way reversible pocket clip for ambidextrous carry completes the solid EDC design.
