C252 Astute:

"Our incredibly popular line of Value Folders takes a new turn with the Astute. Although it shares the same basic construction and materials as its brethren, it features a sleeker, more stylish design that is amazingly pocket friendly.

The long, gently curved cutting edge and full-flat grind of its 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade give it impressive cutting power and point utility. Its ergonomic, open-backed handle features full stainless steel liners for strength and textured G-10 scales to ensure a secure, non-slip grip.

The sturdy LinerLock mechanism locks the blade securely when in use and a four-position pocket clip and lined lanyard hole allow all possible carry preferences. Simply put, the Astute sets a new standard in affordable Spyderco style."[1]
