Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C244 Native Chief

"Sized to literally split the difference between the iconic Endura® 4 and Delica® 4 Lightweights, the Endela proudly offers all the highly refined, time-tested features of each in a the perfect “in-between” format. Its full-flat-ground blade is crafted from VG-10 stainless steel and proudly sports a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for ambidextrous one-hand opening.

Available with either a PlainEdge™ or SpyderEdge™, the blade is supported by a sturdy back lock mechanism, skeletonized stainless steel liners, and injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. Spyderco’s trademark Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern ensures a non-slip grip and a four-position pocket clip offers a choice of tip-up or tip-down carry on both sides of the body." [2]
