The Camillus PRISTINE 6.75″ Folding Knife features a G10/Stainless steel handle and VG10 Steel blade. We chose this material combination for the handle because it allows for handling that you wouldn’t get on other modern knives” one of distinct firmness. VG10 is also considered a super steel” because it is designed to maintain sharpness and durability above all else” making it a great choice for knife blades. To ensure the blade’s strength measures up to the VG10’s base attributes and compliments the robust handle” the steel is also bonded with Carbonitride Titanium. This grants enhanced resistance to rust and corrosion” and makes the blade up to 10x harder than untreated steel so the blade can stay sharp for even longer.
