Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C194 Myrtle:

"Designed by talented Belgian knifemaker Filip De Leeuw, the Myrtle combines distinctive styling, exceptional craftsmanship, and remarkable versatility to yield a truly unique folding knife. Its most unusual feature is its distinctive blade profile, which combines the extreme cutting performance of a broad, leaf-shaped blade with the enhanced utility and dexterity of a slightly hooked point. This shape allows the user to cut with power near the base of the blade and scalpel-like precision with the hawkbill-style tip.

Crafted from premium CPM® S30V® powder metallurgy stainless steel, the Myrtle’s blade features a full-flat grind and a PlainEdge™ cutting edge that offer outstanding edge geometry. It also includes a generously sized Trademark Round Hole™ that proclaims its identity as a Spyderco knife and provides a purchase for quick, positive one-handed opening.

The Myrtle’s handle construction pairs a solid titanium scale on the reverse side with a skeletonized titanium liner, a titanium bolster, and a solid marbled carbon fiber scale on the front side. The reverse-side scale provides a foundation for a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism and is also home to a wide hourglass pocket clip that keeps the knife immediately accessible via convenient right-side, tip-up carry. The clip’s design also allows it to serve a secondary purpose as an overtravel stop for the R.I.L. mechanism and, like the handle’s other metal components, features a handsome, non-reflective stonewash finish."
