Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C256 Pochi:

"Japanese knifemaker Kazuyuki Sakurai specializes in intricate, handcrafted folding knives, many of which are inspired by the shapes of animals. Some of his most popular designs are the dog-shaped knives in his “Pochi” (poh-chee) series, which draws its name from the most common Japanese dog name, roughly the equivalent of “Spot.”

His first Spyderco collaboration faithfully translates this novel design into a unique production folder with a hollow-ground CPM S45VN™ blade, a bead-blasted titanium handle, a Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.), and a blue-anodized folding “tail,” titanium pocket clip, and pivot-pin accent."[1]
