    Today I ordered the DZ-5126-VG. I looks like a great knive at a great price. I am not familiar with the handle material. Can you give me some information regarding Velutex?

    Thank You,

    Hi Joe,

    Velutexª is a textured coating originally developed for the aerospace industry to be used on aircraft surfaces requiring a non-skid surface. For example hand-holds on helicopters, skids, flooring, and many uses outside of the aviation market as well.

    As a result of this it has excellent adhesion to aluminum, it was a natural choice for use on our aluminum handled knives.

    Like any coating, even anodizing, it is NOT imune to scratching, however it does have a good level of scratch resistance.
