Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C154 Squeak:

"Produced in Maniago, the Squeak SLIPIT is a Spyderco non-locking one-hand open, clip carry folder called a SLIPIT. It's designed for legally-restricted carry in locales where locking folders are prohibited.


The blade is ground full-flat and made from Austrian Bohler-Uddeholm's N690Co steel. N690C0 is high-carbon steel with added cobalt for structural uniformity resulting in enhanced edge retention and sharpening receptivity. Textured jimping is machined from the blade's spine and choil for increased slip resistance.


The Squeak's blade is held in the open position when cutting by a notched-joint at the knife's pivot. When closing the blade, the notch generates resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknife and performs the additional function of smoothing the motion of the blade opening. Increasing control and comfort Spyderco designers add a deep finger choil, naturally jogging the index finger into a position on the underside of the blade directly below the thumb. Positioning the index finger in this choil blocks the blade from accidental closing when cutting and provides a grip position that allows the user to choke-up closer to the cutting edge for greater dexterity.


The handle is FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) and engineered for user comfort whether in the hand, with ergonomic handle texturing, or in the pocket with a reversible tip-up deep pocket wire clip."

Additional info for the Pink C154PPN:

"Spyderco is very proud to support Guardians of the Ribbon/Pink Heals Tour and the "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" programs by donating a portion of the sales of our pink-handled knives. Founded in 2007 by retired firefighter Dave Graybill, this amazing charity focuses on providing direct care to women battling all forms of cancer. The Pink Heals Movement, best known for its fleet of pink fire trucks and police cars, tours the U.S. visiting women and children cancer patients, determining their most critical needs, and coordinating local resources to meet those needs. Pink Heals also recruits the support of tax-based services and community leaders to ensure continued support of women battling cancer by the donations staying local to the community it was raised in. Most importantly, Pink Heals applies 100% of all the donations they receive to direct care for the women it serves, providing immediate, tangible support to those who need it most. All the charity’s operating expenses are paid for by sales of pink shirts bearing their organizational logo. These shirts are also the foundation of the "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" campaign—a national campaign intended to increase the focus on women as one of the world’s most precious resources.


Spyderco is honored to support the Guardians of the Ribbon/Pink Heals Tour and the women it serves. To learn more about its extraordinary programs and how you can help support their efforts, please visit http://pinkfiretrucks.org/."
