The unmatched function of AXIS combined with the simplicity of a molded Valox handle with 420J stainless steel liners and a reversible steel carry-clip - It's a new species of knife. Safe. Reliable. Smooth. Affordable. Grip in two blade styles and two knife sizes. Griptilian performance is keenly unleashed with a simple thumb rotation, either right or left-handed, you choose. The hand settles naturally over the palm swelled shape and its textured skin. The BK1 coating provides excellent corrosion protection, which exceeds the ASTM-117 spec for saltwater while possessing higher scratch resistance.
