Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C217 Caribbean

"One of the latest and most stylish additions to Spyderco’s growing Salt Series of knives, the Caribbean is unique in several ways. Its full-flat-ground, leaf-shaped blade is precision machined from LC200N-a nitrogen-beased martensitic steel that holds and edge extremely well and is completely rustproof. Available with either a PLainEdge or fully serrated SpyderEdge, the blade is housed in a vibrantly colored handle featuring scales crafted from layered black and yellow G-10. The intricately machined patteren on the scales not only creates a non-slip texture, it reveals the contrasting colors of the layers to create a stunning striped design. Skeletonized stainless steel liners nested within the scales anchor the knife’s high-strength Compression Lock mechanism, while a reversible titanium hourglass clip offers convenient left or right-side tip-up carry."
