Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C222 Alcyone:

"Alcyone is a brilliant multiple star system in the constellation of Taurus named for one of the daughters of Atlas and Pleione. Like its namesake, this knife shines brightly above its peers, offering all the defining qualities of a Spyderco folder in an affordable, pocket friendly package. Its full-flat-ground blade is precision machined from American-made CTS® BD1 stainless steel and features a minimal ricasso for a long, exceptionally capable working edge. The blade is paired with an ergonomic handle design that includes full skeletonized stainless steel liners, lightweight open-backed construction, and high-traction checked G-10 scales. A sturdy, easily operated LinerLock mechanism, four-position pocket clip, and oversized lanyard hole complete the package and make the Alcyone one of the best values in the folding knife market."
