AUS-8A is a stainless steel with a relatively low carbon content, making it rust resistant and easy to sharpen.
Zytel is used for several different high strength, abrasion, and impact resistant thermoplastic polyamide formulations of the family more commonly known as nylon. It is used for folding knife handles because of its stiffness, strength, heat resistance, and chemical resistance.
