The design of the Spyderco Pochi is inspired by the shape of a dog. Japanese knifemaker, Kazuyuki Sakurai, expresses affectionate playfulness in the jaunty, yet functional craftsmanship of the knife. The hollow ground CPM-S-45VN blade resembles a dog's head and retreats elegantly into the titanium handle via the R.I.L. When the knife is unfolded, it has the appearance of a little dog. With titanium clip (tip-up).
