Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

"Full of innovation, his recent alliance with Spyderco results in the Perrin PPT folder. P.P.T. refers to the folder’s three designers; Fred Perrin, Philippe Perotti and Sacha Thiel.

The lock is a crossbreed annexing components of both Michael Walker’s LinerLock® and Chris Reeve’s Reeve Integral Lock. It functions as a frame-lock but a black G-10 scale overlaying the lock makes it appear closer to a LinerLock. The black G-10 handle scales are milled with corrugated creases for skid-free and ergonomic handling. Its full-flat ground CPM-S30V steel blade is a modified-Wharncliffe profile with a finger choil and spine jimping and a tapered spine-swedge. Screw together construction makes cleaning and adjustments simple. Left/right deep-carry pocket clip and handle lanyard open the door for endless attachment options"[1]
