Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C101:

"The recipe for success: Start with an exceptionally strong lock, manufacture using precise tolerances and add a blade honed from exotic high-carbon stainless steel. The conclusion is the Manix 83mm. The C101 is an assembly of small seemingly inconsequential features that added together result in one of the strongest knives from Spyderco to date. Outstanding ergonomics are the result of the positioning between the fore-finger choil and the backlock and the relationship between the blade’s weight, the lock’s shape and the spring’s shape. These little things result in the smoothest possible opening/closing and reliable and comfortable cutting. Nested in the handle are skeletonized dual steel liners increasing rigidity and strength without the burden of unneeded weight. The blade is made from Crucible’s CPM-S30V steel and comes double flat-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above the enlarged 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. Jimping keeps the thumb in safe and controlled contact with the blade’s spine. A three-screw pocket clip adjusts for ambidextrously carry, tip-up or tip-down."[1]

Variations
