New Spyderco Native 5 Salt at KnifeCenter

Spyderco’s Salt Series of knives was made with one thing in mind: to make corrosion an afterthought. Through the use of exotic steels and handles with plenty of traction, these knives were made to be ideal companions in corrosive and aquatic environments, hence the name Salt. On top of that, the Native 5 is a fantastic American-made EDC that contains all of the best elements we love about Spyderco designs.

 


Now that Spyderco has welcomed the Native 5 into the Salt family it comes with some new tweaks, making this high-performance knife even better. The biggest change is the use of high-performing LC200N blade steel, famously used by NASA in ball-bearings as a substitute for 52100 in their aerospace equipment. This steel is a nitrogen-enriched tool steel that offers edge retention that can rival many of today’s modern super steels, a big leap over the H1 steel that Spyderco has traditionally used in their Salt knives. LC200N also sports exceptional toughness and extreme corrosion resistance, making it ideal for use in the Salt Series.

Lots Of Specials! – Here’s a Breakdown on the Great Deals

Ok, we have a heck of a lot of specials going on at the same time. It can get confusing. Which ones are really cheap and which ones are just everyday sale items. I’m here to give you the inside scoop. First, let me point out that the reason for these lists is that we have so many items – the list is really enormous and so many of them are really great deals. We just want to help everyone get to what they are looking for and it’s not always easy. For instance: We just posted the “80 Items up to 80% Off- greatest sale ever” promotion. That’s a pretty big claim. Well, these items are hand picked as good items that we just happen to have too many on the shelf. We are willing to make just a bit on them to lighten up our inventory level for the end of the year. We are all in a buying mode right now and, as I say repeatedly, you have to make hay while the sun shines.

Then we have the flat rate shipping through today. Well, this is just a great deal.

We are running the Medford Sale that gives you some really solidly built knives at a reasonable price. Medford likes to price their product way Continue Reading
