Native, Black FRN Handle, Plain .
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

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

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
