Here is the information from Spyderco knives:
Spyderco’s SLIPIT line continues expanding as global necessity and preference for non-locking folders grows. Locking folders continue gaining pariah status, we’ve recognized this trend and started creating designs that are a synthesis of modern and traditional. SLIPITS are reliable non-locking folders which are socially friendly and internationally accepted for slip in your pocket urban carry. Our new Rescue Penknife’s blade is held open by a notched-joint at the knife’s pivot. When closing the blade the notch produces resistance, functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknives. To achieve heightened safety, control and comfort, a deep finger choil positions the index finger on the bottom of the blade directly under the thumb. This lets you choke-up nearer the cutting edge with comfort and dexterity. The handle is safety orange G-10 with a tension-wire clip that carries deeply in the pocket, tipup and either left or right-handed. The CPMS30V hollow-ground blade is a Sheepfoot shape available SpyderEdged.
