This is my latest Swiza knife and no surprise it is another ALLBLACK model. This is the D01 Moss with yellowish tone to the handle scales. There is something extra with the PVD or coated models,
the contrast between the handle scale colors and the black coated functions and liners gives an extra eye factor. It also gives further abilities for the stainless steel and over-all quality. The color on this is not easy to picture for the camera. It came
out ok and it is a brave color that is beautiful to look at. Tweezers are included on this model as well. All the way from the beginning when I started collecting, researching and to study Swiss knives I have looked for colors and variations. Colors are very
nice and important I feel for the interest. Stainless steel contains Chromium and elements that makes the stainless steel alloy corrosion resistant. In contact with oxygen the chromium oxide will prevent rust and corrosion. The PVD coating will increase the
corrosion resistance because it will seal the surface. If the coating get scratches and eventually wear off the stainless steel will be exposed and continue to be protected anyhow. The coating as I mentioned before will be for the appearance, corrosion resistance
and wear resistance.
