Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C95G:

"Start with an exceedingly strong lock, manufacture using precise tolerance measurements, and add a blade honed from the superior blade steel. Welcome the Manix. The backlock is substantial, positioned mid-spine for smooth opening and closing of the blade. By skeletonizing the dual steel liners (which are nested into the G-10 handle) rigidity and strength are increased without adding unnecessary thickness or weight. Outstanding ergos result from a fore-finder choil allowing you to choke up on the blade for better manipulation over the cutting edge. Smooth open and closing action is due to the relationship between the blade's weight, the lock's shape and the spring's shape. All a result of implementing precise, close manufacturing tolerances. Made from premium S30V steel, the blade is double flat-ground with aggressive thumb serrations notched above the 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. This keeps the thumb gripped on the blade spine enhancing cutting performance. Available in a PlainEdge or CombinationEdge. Carries ambidextrously with a steel clip that positions the knife for tip up/down carry."[1]
