Native Chief™ Orange G-10 CTS XHP Exclusive
This Exclusive version of the Native Chief™ was produced for Cutlery Shoppe (CutleryShoppe.com) and is only offered through their sales channels.
The first distinguishing feature of this elite knife is its blade, which is precision machined from CTS® XHP—an air-hardening, high-carbon, high-chromium alloy that can be described as either a high-hardness 440C stainless steel or a corrosion-resistant D2 tool steel. As a blade material, it offers superior edge retention and surface finish and can be sharpened to a very fine edge. It is also extremely resistant to corrosion.
In Cutlery Shoppe's signature style, the knife's handle sports high-visibility orange G-10 scales. The peel-ply-textured scales offer a secure, non-slip grip and, together with a stainless steel backspacer, support the knife's highly refined back lock mechanism. To allow a full range of carry options for both right and left-handed users, the handle also includes a four position hourglass clip and a large lanyard hole.
