Everything good that has been said about the Native is true.
I have been carrying one for a while and I just ordered another. As much as I love my Sifu and Boa, I would have to pick the Native as winner of the all-around utility competition.
Here is my mini-review:
The blade shape can do just about anything well and is wide enough not to be fragile. The handle gives me a grip that I trust not to slip even when applying my full strength. Opening is smooth. The lock is positive and strong. The clip provides a tip-up carry, which seems to be unusual in knives this size.
Because the actual edge is less than 2.5" the Native should be legal just about anywhere. The plain-edge version is my preferred "airport knife".
With the reversible clip the Native is fully ambidextrous. I sometimes reconfigure mine for carry in my left front pocket if I'm not wearing the waist pack that usually rides in front of that pocket.
My two most common utility knives, Native and Boa, both have blades made of 440V. They take a wicked edge and seem to hold it exceptionally well. Neither has shown any sign of staining, despite being sweated on most of the time.
So far 440V is my favorite knife steel, although the D-2 Enhanced Sifu may eventually change my mind.
All-in-all I think the Native combines capabilities of a medium-sized knife (3"-4") with the social, legal, and practical advantages of a small knife (under 2.5"). You can't go wrong carrying one.
