Native® 5 Smooth G-10 CPM CRU-WEAR Black Blade Exclusive
This Exclusive limited-edition Native® 5 was specially manufactured for KnifeCenter (knifecenter.com) and is only available through their sales channels.
The defining feature of this elite knife is its blade, which is precision machined from Crucible® Industries’ CPM® CRU-WEAR®—an air-hardening tool steel specially formulated to offer both superior wear resistance and toughness. The CRU-WEAR used in the blade of this knife is further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which ensures an ultra-fine, extremely homogeneous grain structure that maximizes the performance potential of the steel.
The PlainEdge™ blade of this knife is full-flat ground for superior edge geometry and cloaked in a black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating that reduces its reflective signature and helps protect it from corrosion. In KnifeCenter's signature style, the handle is constructed with smooth black G-10 scales and its lock bar, four-position pocket clip, and all other handle hardware also sport durable black coatings.
