Spyderco® describes this item as follows:

Engineered for the human hand, the Native's ergonomic design maximizes cutting ability while minimizing 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 on the drawing table. We've created a handle pattern with two separate finger choils. 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 Texturing 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 swedge 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.

Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A. Earth.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Handle Material, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Weight
I am not a Spyderco fan. I think about all "Spydies" are ugly. Functional, yes. Extremely overpriced, yes. Competitive, no. This knife, however, is the exception. This is a beautiful knife. The overall knife shape, the grind of the blade, the position of the thump opening in the blade, ALL beautiful! Too large for an every day carry knife in my opinion. I like a gentle men's pocket knife and this one, of course, does not even come close. ATTN. Spyderco: Why not downsize this exact knife to a smaller, lighter, more beautiful EDC or gentlemen's knife? Smaller, lighter, adjustable blade pin, liner lock, smaller high polished titanium pocket clip, thin slab material of maybe carbon fiber, keep weight very light at no more than two and one half ounces and THEN see if you have a winner?

Cons: None
Solid & Lightweight
This is an EDC for me...the knife is the perfect blend of lightweight materials and solid construction for a perfect little knife. The blade is razor sharp and everything fits together seamlessly, when the knife is open or closed there are no jagged edges on the frame the and no play in the blade. I have some high end Spydies and this one meets the same corners were cut.
