    I spoke in humor, but you are correct. The only likely change would be a higher hollow using a platen to further concave the bevel.
    My 's:
    Native, Manix 2 (BD1,154CM,S30V,M4,XHP,S110V,Cruwear), Delica 4 (White,Red,Brown,Blue,BRG,G-10), Spyderhawk, D'fly (H1,G-10,SB), Police3, Volpe, Military (S30V,XHP,D2,M390,BG42,440V,Cruwear), Superleafs, Forager, D2 Para, Kopas, Kiwis, Caly (JR's,3,3.5), Para2 (XHP,204P), Stretch (SS,FRN's,CF), Rescues, Dyad Jr, Pingos, Southard, AIR, Jess Horns, Forum N5, Lil Matriarch, Barong, Superhawk, Chinook II, ATR, SPY-DK, Captain, Ti UKPK, Mules

    Krein did a few Native Regrinds, and they were extremely thin!

    I got my XHP Native today, pretty cool

    That was quick -- I didn't learn of this until day before yesterday when I got a KC email about it. Thanks for the real-life pic. The spydie bug looks brown in the KC ad copy and maybe in their pics as well, but black in your pic? ...and to me the brown FRN looks darker than the Delica brown.

    I haven't been much of a Native fan but couldn't resist the feature-loaded forum Native, and it grows on you. The forum knife is heavy and rugged, one of its good points, but a bit heavy for its size, hence the need for these light weight Native1 models ... and the upcoming light weight Native5. But with the, to me, beautiful brown FRN and new to me CTS-XHP I couldn't wait and pulled the trigger last night.

    I had to go to the spydiewiki to try to disambiguate all these models

    http://spydiewiki.com/index.php?title=C41_Native

    I'm guessing that the Native1 lock is more like that of the Delica, and Sal says the light weight Native5 lock is going to be like that of the regular Native5... but I couldn't wait -- had to have the bird in the hand.

    The logo is a normal, dark etched color. I don't have a brown FRN Endura/Delica anymore, but going off memory I'd say this Native is darker.

    I'd encourage you, Roman, but I know you have some other priorities right now.

    It won't measure up to your S110V anyway, so don't worry about it.

    Just got my KC exclusive native(brown frn, cts-xhp blade) today! Just like the pictures posted above! As I am technologically challenged, by choice you will have to look at the picture posted by Wire-edge Roger! What a beauty and must-have for a native lover! Sorry bh49!!!

    I couldn't resist buying it on the rebound after deciding not to get the CF Manix2-XL (I think)
