The Nautilus was designed with one vision in mind: effortless flipping. The Nautilus is the epitome of peak performance, featuring a precision bushing system, lightweight channel-liner handle system, and a striking DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) finished blade. The DLC coat not only offers an enhanced blade appearance, but also improves its hardness, durability, and resistance to wear and tear.
