Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

Predates the online catalog. From the 1997 Product Guide:

The exotic yet functional bladeware of this veteran knife artist is sought by discriminating knife collectors worldwide. In his recent collaborative effort with Spyderco, Jot Singh Khalsa creates a novel piece with superior comfort and ergonomic control. The geometrically shaped scales are formed of black Micarta and house full stainless steel liners with a textured Linerlock. The blade enjoys incomparably fluid action and lends itself well to general cutting tasks. The Spyderco Trademark Round Hole in the blade is very pronounced, creating a "hump" along the spine that gives this tool the feel of a cross-guard. Despite its robust design, the Spyderco/Khalsa collaboration is light enough for everyday carry. Overall, this unique piece reflects Khalsa's dedication to exceptional beauty and Spyderco's commitment to unmatched functionality.
