Spyderco x Abel Native 5 Fishing Knife

Jan 16, 2019

Category: Gear

As further proof that an everyday carry knife is an indispensable and handy tool for just about every activity, Spyderco has just announced a team-up with Abel, the renowned fishing brand, unveiling what they’re calling the “world’s best fishing knife.”

Based on Spyderco’s Native 5, this folding blade is the culmination of a whopping two years of research and development by both brands — and all that effort certainly shows. Equipped with an exceptionally corrosion-resistant LC200N blade steel, this knife will stay sharp as a razor through multiple uses and won’t rust with exposure to moisture, making it excellent for dressing your catches. It also features aerospace-grade aluminum alloy handle scales that are hand-polished and anodized in Abel’s California workshop and available in your choice of one of three fish-inspired hand-painted finishes: Bonefish, Native Brown Trout, and Native Rainbow Trout. The whole package is finished off with a sturdy back lock and pocket clip, and each one comes with a lifetime warranty. This angler-ready blade is available now for $495.

Purchase: $495
