Isn't the only "Native" with 440A steel the "BRK Native"?
This guy is selling "Natives" that are 440A steel, but have no "first generation" etc., markings on the blade.

I'm not sure, so I thought I would ask. Maybe they sanded it off or something.
Described as: "This is a Spyderco Native Model. It has a handle of ballistic nylon. Blade is 440A, serrated except for the tip. Measures 3 7/8" long closed. Belt clip on reverse. Made in USA".
