When it comes to a quality, long-lasting knife blade that will hold it’s an edge for a long time, then it doesn’t get much better than titanium. The truth is that outdoorsmen prefer a knife that is both lightweight and durable.

While titanium makes an excellent handle for hunting and outdoor knives, it’s seldom used in the blade. This is because a titanium knife blade can be challenging to hone and sharpen once the edge becomes dull. Still, titanium blades do have a few advantages over steel and blades composed od other materials.

Titanium doesn’t rust or corrode like steel and is very durable and lightweight. The durability of the metal is almost a catch-22. While the blade will remain sharp after many uses, it will eventually dull and need to be honed by a professional service with special equipment or replaced entirely.
