D2 is a semi-stainless tool steel that exhibits excellent characteristics as a blade steel. This air-hardened steel is more corrosion resistant than other high carbon steels due to its high chromium content and offers a good mix of toughness, wear resistance, and edge holding ability.
This material is used in making knife handles. It consists of a film based mixture containing phenolic resins glued together with a variety of papers and fabrics. It has pleasant tactile properties. Micarta is durable and moisture resistant and also has dielectric properties.
PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating provides excellent resistance from wear and corrosion. The coating material is vaporized at a high temperature and then coated on the blade in the process of condensation. Anti-reflective blades with black PVD coating are especially popular in tactical knives.
