Wood looks great but is harder to pin or epoxy in place. Aluminum tends to make the user sensitive to temperature extremes. Space Age-materials similar to polymers are excellent for keeping the knife durable, low priced and lightweight. The handles materials, or scales, should be textured to improve the grip and hold it in the pocket until needed. Knife makers began using Torx screws to secure the pocket clip, often offering the tip up or tip down option.
