Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C186 Slysz Bowie:

"Marcin Slysz is a Polish custom knifemaker with a well-earned reputation for impeccable craftsmanship. His second collaborative design with Spyderco, the Slysz Bowie™ is a titanium-handled folding knife with a high-performance stainless steel blade and a Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism.


The knife’s Bowie-style blade features a long, straight clip point with a radiused spine. It is precision ground from Carpenter® CTS® XHP powder metallurgy stainless steel—a state-of-the-art alloy that combines the enviable performance characteristics of D2 with a higher degree of corrosion resistance. The blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and includes a section of “jimping” (grooves) on the thumb ramp for enhanced control during use. For easy one-handed operation, it also includes Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™.


The handle of the Slysz Bowie is constructed from two solid titanium scales, one of which forms the basis for its sturdy R.I.L. mechanism. Unlike most knives of its type that have flat scales, the scales of the Slysz Bowie are gently radiused across their entire width to offer much better ergonomics. They are also stonewashed to a dull battleship gray that enhances their grip texture and provides greater control during use. The butt end of the handle features a unique G-10 spacer with two sections of strategically placed jimping to further enhance the knife’s grip texture and aesthetic appeal. It’s also home to a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that supports left or right-side tip-up carry and rides low in the pocket for maximum discretion."
