Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C212 Magnitude:

"Designed by acclaimed custom knifemaker Peter Carey, the aptly named Magnitude is a highly refined LinerLock folding knife that offers impressive cutting performance and a full spectrum of one-hand opening options. In addition to a Kit Carson-inspired index-finger flipper, its blade also features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift one-handed opening with either hand. Hollow ground from high-performance CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel, the dramatically profiled blade features a long, sweeping PlainEdge™ cutting edge, a full-thickness spine, and a stylish swedge (unsharpened bevel) that collectively offer an amazing balance of cutting performance and strength.

The Magnitude’s equally impressive handle combines full skeletonized titanium liners, painstakingly machined solid twill carbon fiber scales, and a scalloped brown G-10 backspacer to create an extremely strong, ergonomic structure that is also visually stunning. The knife’s distinctive pivot pin assembly is encircled by an inlaid brown G-10 accent and embellished with meticulously machined details. It also houses a pair of precision ball-bearing washers that give the blade an ultra-smooth, low-friction action. A custom-designed clip configured for right-side tip-up carry completes the package and ensures the Magnitude is always poised and ready when you are."
