The C250 Bombshell is part of Spyderco's Collaboration model series and based on a custom design by Michael Burch. It is Spyderco's second Flash Batch design, which is similar to a Sprintrun, but instead of utilizing a pre-existing model, uses a never before produced model that will not be produced in that exact configuration again.

Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C250 Bombshell:

"Based on knifemaker Michael Burch’s wildly popular custom folder, the Spyderco Bombshell faithfully translates his unique design into a production knife. The heart of this heavy-duty folding knife is its thick CPM® 20CV® stainless steel blade, which features a drop-point profile, a hollow grind, and a no-nonsense stonewashed finish. Its stout handle is crafted with full, skeletonized titanium liners, radiused olive drab G-10 scales and a matching G-10 backspacer. The liners form the backbone of the Bobshell’s high-strength LinerLock mechanism and a pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry ensures quick access.

To make this remarkable knife even more unique, it is a Flash Batch, which means it will be produced only once in this exact form. To make them even more collectible, Flash Batches are individually serialized with a laser-engraved number on every blade."
