The latest and most anticipated addition to this elite family features CPM® MagnaCut™, a remarkable powder metallurgy steel conceived by Larrin Thomas, a Ph.D. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.  MagnaCut challenges traditional stainless steel chemistry by reducing the amount of chromium in the steel to a precise range while adding vanadium and niobium. The result is a blade material that offers an extraordinary balance of wear resistance, toughness, and corrosion resistance.

The Native Salt is a dynamic fusion of the best-selling Native 5 Lightweight platform. The defining feature of this knife is its full-flat-ground CPM Magnacut blade, is available with a PlainEdge and features an index-finger choil that allows the option of a forward, “choked up” grip for enhanced control.

The blade is paired with a lightweight, injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle, a precision-machined high-strength back lock mechanism, and a broad-based four-position pocket clip that supports all possible carry options. Together these features, along with the blade’s fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™, make both carry and operation of this remarkable knife completely ambidextrous. The handle proudly showcases the characteristic high-visibility yellow color of our Salt Series and our signature Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern that ensures a positive grip both in and out of the water.

    Quality control

    Posted by Derek on 18th Apr 2023

    Was super pumped to get this knife. But the jimping on the back lock section is cut super crooked and doesn’t match the blade and the swedge on the top of the blade is uneven by 3/16” toward the tip. I recommend waiting to buy this until spyderco works out the kinks. Not super happy with spyderco on this one.

    This is my first light weight FRN model from Spyderco. Doesn't have the action of a Military 2, but that being said I haven't tried adjusting yet. I love the feeling in the hand. The lock is absolutely solid with no play. The choil and jimping are placed and executed very well. Fit and finish is almost perfect. When closed, it has a nice shape for the pocket. Honestly, can't stop staring at it. All hardware is black with exception of one small retaining pin. This will not be my last lightweight nor will it be my last native 5. Overall a very nice purchase!

    LW Native 5 salt series Magnacut

    Posted by Puerto Rican with a Knife on 10th Apr 2023

    This version of the native 5 has become my favorite in the collection. Wasn’t sure how’d I feel about the FRN or the yellow color. However, the color is more of a marine yellow and the FRN works great! Now the real star of the show is the magnacut steel??… what are you waiting for?? Treat yourself! #knifedope
