This Delta model has a titanium handle. The Kansept Delta is a truly unique knife. Not many knives can claim that they have three openers. The Delta has a front flipper with dedicated gimping, a regular flipper, and dual thumb studs. If you can't reliably open your knife with all those options, we don't know what to tell you. When open, the knife is a rugged, hard use knife that will serve you very well.
