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.

Cons: Handle Material, None
Really Good Knife
I needed a good quality knife that was affordable. I was looking for a semi-tactical looking knife that I could carry. I found it in this knife. The only thing I see to improve is the handle material. I don't know what it is made of but seems kind of light and brittle. I still would recommend buying this knife. It's very sharp and it arrived very quickly. I would buy more knives from knifecenter.com.

FANTASTIC
This us my every day carry, and I bought it to replace an identical knife that I lost last month. Waited until I was sure the other one was "really" lost. Best all purpose knife I've owned in 62 years and that includes Case, Schrade, victorinox, Kershaw and other really good knives. To be clear I love them all and they all are good for some tasks, but this is my favorite all around. Btw it's a knife, not a prybar or screwdriver.

Disappointing
When I purchased my first Spyderco Native, I didn't know what I was buying. I knew it had a good reputation, it felt great in my hand, it was easy to open, it looked cool and it was super sharp. What I didn't know was how awesome it was and all the stuff it would cut through. That was way back in 1998-9. I don't remember the blade material (GIN-1, I think) but it was sharp and sturdy enough to cut through everything from paper to wheel well plastics and some metals. In 12 years I never needed to resharpen it or do anything more than keep it clean. I got so cocky with it I somehow thought I could dislodge a manhole cover with it. I was only mostly wrong. I ended up breaking the tip off of the blade (approx.a quarter inch), but other wise stillworked awesomely. Well,due to the slight defect, I decided to get another sight unseen from KnifeCenter. Unfortunately, the blade material is different (CPMS30V) and is nowhere near the strength of my last knife. Within a couple of weeks I had already lost the point of the blade as well as having chips in the blade. And I wasn't even using it as rough as my previous blade. I was severely and utterly disappointed in what used to be my favorite knife of all time. I would not recommend this knife now unless the change the blade material back to a hard metal.
