History, mentionings from the forums etc.

Some information from Sal Glesser posted on the BladeForums:

The 201 was narrow, no flairs at the bottom, 40 degrees angle only, 2 brass safety guards. We realized early on that it was too narrow and added flanges on the front half for greater support which was the 202.[1]

The blue base 202 was only sold in Hawaii. It was an marketing experiment. Sold with blue stones. I believe we made about 500 of them.[2]

Information from the Spyderco catalog

Model #202

The 'Tri-Angle' Ceramic Sharpener is a unique combination of an abrasive called HIGH ALUMINA CERAMIC and a base holder which positions these abrasives at the proper angles to simplify sharpening of knives and shears.

The Alumina Ceramic is very hard (next to diamond on the hardness scale) and will not wear out. It can be used to file any type of metal. We hope you enjoy your 'Tri-Angle' and it brings you many years of excellent service. [3]
