AUS-8 Steel

AUS-8 is a Japanese medium-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel. One word says it all, "balance." It offers exceptional balance between toughness, edge sharpness, and corrosion resistance. Balance provides lasting value. AUS-8 ranks among the hardest, toughest, and most rust-resistant knife alloys. It's a trusted favorite that enthusiasts prefer time and again.

Carbonitride Titanium

Carbonitride Titanium is one of the hardest surface treatments containing titanium. Harder than carbide. Harder than chrome. Our proprietary process creates a permanent molecular bond with the blade surface. Will not flake, blister, chip, or peel. A complex crystalline structure forms which protects the blade surface against wear, staining, and damage.

Pros: Blade Material, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Type, Overall Quality
Not Safe
My review is that i'm surprised whoever owns the "Camillus" name is not involved in a lawsuit because someone mangled their hand when the lock failed. I'm %95 certain that my example would close on itself if I tried to stab a car or something stupid like that. It's actually not a bad knife for $35 apart from that but it's pointless to carry a beefy linerlock like this if you have to handle it like a slipjoint. The steel is noticeably better than SAK or Buck 420HC.

Great if modified.
This has been my EDC/work knife for the past 6 years. It's the best pocket knife I ever had. It's the thickest blade I've seen on a cheap knife. I have successfully used it as a pry bar, screwdriver, chisel, gasket scraper, electrical jumper, and even cut stuff. I do have to hone it daily, but that's more to do with my lifestyle. I hated the button slider thing at first, but after getting used to it, it's quicker than a spring loaded knife. As for the liner lock issue, it's a big one. It would go all the way to the other side and allow the blade to slip past it. I have rigged it up a few different way, but the best and final one was to just take it apart and remove the plastic washer/spacer on the other side so there's no way for the blade to slide past it. This also requires trimming the pivot hardware a little, but the rest of the handle hardware just gets extra torque. Nothing can make it close in on itself either, the liner has to be pushed out of the way. This has been shown off before by throwing being thrown backwards into wood and concrete. Now, I have changed the geometry a lot, mainly because I get bored with a stone in my hand sometimes, so mine feels nothing like it did from the factory. Mine has literally seen hell and back, and it's still here able to shave hair, with not a sign of a bend. I did lose 1/8" off the tip, but that was when it was being used to jump across the starter solenoid on an old Ford, you can't even tell after I reshaped it. Never thought about complaining about handle materials or feel, so those must be good to me. I think that's all. Belt clip sucks, but they all do....Funny story. I worked on this old car one time, finished it up, customer paid and left. A while later my knife wasn't there when I reached for it. I spent all day looking for it. A couple months later, car comes back for an oil change. It was right there under the hood. I was so happy to have it back, and haven't been without it since.
