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 Bowie 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. The Plain Edge variation is pictured below.
