The C108 Bi-Fold was originally going to be produced outside the U.S.A. and was announced for late 2006. Due to some complicated legal issues (it's considered an automatic knife) the Bi-Fold was discontinued in early 2007, before even being produced.

The Bi-Fold was awarded the Blade Magazine "Most innovative imported knife of 2006" award.

Spyderco still considers producing the Bi-Fold in the U.S.A. and distributing it through autorized auto dealers.
