Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C238 Paysan

"The Paysan is an exquisitely crafted folding knife based on the custom creation of renowned knifemaker Peter Rassenti. French for “peasant” or “farmer,” the Paysan (pronounced pie-zaan) is, paradoxically, an incredibly sophisticated design.

Its uniquely shaped, saber-ground blade is crafted from 4mm-thick (.157-inch) CPM® S90V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The blade pivots on ball-bearing washers for an ultra-smooth action and is housed in a one-piece handle machined from solid titanium—to include its high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism.

A stainless steel interface in the lock yields a long service life and also functions as an overtravel stop. To keep the Paysan poised for instant access, it includes an hourglass pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry." [1]
