Much like the complete line of Tom Clarke’s Knives, Titanium blades are drastically lighter and are not susceptible to corrosion. Because there is no danger of rust it is not necessary to coat these blades. Titanium blades are not designed for prying because they could easily chip. There optimal use would be for diving or for those who require or desire a lighter knife design.
The handles were designed in a way that when you form a grip the foreign debris is pushed out allowing a secure grip of skin against the material. There are no wraps or acute angles where mud or debris could accumulate which could interfere with a secure solid grip. If foreign debris is not able to escape from a handle, often seen with wraps or a divot inlay, a smooth and slippery surface will result and error is likely. The grips are also available in a low profile thickness; this is your personal choice for the carry usage you desire.
