Spyderco Native Folding Knife
Engineered for the human hand, the Spyderco Native Folding Knife’s design maximizes cutting ability while minimized discomfort and fatigue. This model is all about combining performance and comfort. Since the portion of the knife most in contact with the user is the handle, that became key while the model was in initial development of the drawing table.
The handle pattern features two separate finger choiles. 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 Texture molded into the FRN handle form varying levels of steps minimizing forward or backward sliding.
Carved out of the locking lever is a David Boye Dent insuring the lock remains safely engaged even when gripping the handle forcefully. A section of non-sharpened serrations line the blade’s spine yield an additional slip resistant point for the thumb. The blade itself is hollow-ground CPM-S30V steel with a weight reducing wedge ground from the spine. A black steel tip-up clip can be placed ambidextrously on both sides of the handle via a barrel-shaped screw that doubles as a lanyard.

Got this knife to carry for tactical reasons and i have since removed the clip (not hard to remove and put back on) and carry it in my pocket all the time! It is now 3 to 4 years old and is holding up well to all the punishment i can dish out. It is easy to open and close with one hand and feels solid with no play with the blade locked open. The black on the blade is holding up well too for all the cutting and prying (i know i am not supposed to pry with a blade....But it happens anyway) it holds a sharp edge well too and isn’t one of those knifes that is really hard to get a good edge on.... My only grip would be that i wish that they used black metal pieces for the parts that are visible in the picture above and that they screw piece for the clip was not just painted black because the paint does scratch off over time... Other than that grip above this is an awesome knife and i carry it all the time (other than boarding an airplane...It goes checked) and one of the best parts is that it is made here in the great usa...You will be pleased!
