Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C175 ClipiTool Bottle Opener & Screwdriver:

"Spyderco’s ClipiTools™ are a special breed of tool that combine a high-performance cutting edge with the added convenience and functionality of other tools—all in a pocket-friendly, clip-carried package that keeps them instantly accessible. ClipiTools feature precision all-stainless-steel construction with superior fit, finish, and attention to detail. They all feature a non-locking primary blade with broad, full-flat-ground profile for superior cutting performance. A forefinger choil (finger groove) at the base of the blade protects against accidental closure during use and ensures a secure, easily controlled grip.

The ClipiTool Bottle Opener and Screwdriver features a convenient folding bottle opener that also doubles as a flat-blade screwdriver. Both it and the tool’s knife blade include Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ for easy two-handed opening without fear of breaking a fingernail."

Questions with an answer: Q: Why is this a Variant and not a Main model in the collector's club? A: While not for certain, it's assumed that even though this is an entirely new SKU, Spyderco has chosen to make the C169 ClipiTool the Main model while the other two ClipiTools (C175 and C176) are considered Variants, despite them having their own SKU numbers.
