Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C172 Domino:

"Designed by Eric Glesser, the Domino is the second Spyderco knife to feature a Kit Carson-inspired flipper opener. Its full-flat-ground blade is machined from premium CTS™ XHP steel and rides on specially designed ball bearing washers for an ultra-smooth opening action. The handle features a solid titanium scale on one side and a titanium liner and black Cubic Check Carbon Fiber Laminate scale on the other. The titanium scale houses a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a steel interface that serves double duty as an overtravel stop. For ease and versatility of carry, the Domino also includes a black, four-position pocket clip."
