The Griptilian features Sand colored Noryl GTX Handle Scales (which are very strong and very lightweight). Double 410 stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The blade is 154-CM stainless (plain) with BK1 Black Blade Coating. The pocket clip can be reversed for right or left handed people. The AXIS lock system makes the knife easy to open and easy to close (it operates identically for right and left handers).
