Blade of .135" thick - Crucible AIRDI-150 D2 tool steel
Blade Finish: Satin
Handle: Color Anodized Titanium
Lock: .125" Hardened Titanium Frame Lock
Carry Method: Stainless Steel Pocket Clip
It seems well made and solid.

Thanks for the info, im considering this blade. I do not have any cammilus blades but have stuck with Spyderco. i like the large blade and Ti frame. for the bucks it seems like a great buy.

As it happens, I just had the chance to handle the bowie type maxx 5.5 this weekend.
It was passing through from the USA to a friend of mine and stopped by my place. :D
The lock is an integral linerlock and the action is smooth and without play. It must be one of the biggest folders out there, yet the handle is very slim and itt seems like it won't be as uncomfortable to carry as the size suggests.
Anyway, it's nicely made and very impressively big. :)
I suggest getting one right after you acquire an ATR. :p

This knife kicks major butt. Currently the best "megafolder" out there by far. And it is deceptively comfortable to carry due to the slimness. Although you're still talking about >6.5" closed length; for me that limits its position in the carry rotation, but there are definitely days I carry it.

A superb design, well-proportioned, light, perfectly balanced. I have only two criticisms: not lefty-friendly, and the D2 steel can be a bear to re-sharpen, if you let it get too dull. In normal use, the edge lasts a real long time. The lock on mine, and on others I've heard, was a little hard to release initially, but frequent usage quickly tuned it up fine. It's a frame lock, not a liner-lock, so the harder you hold it, the better it locks. It feels like a fixed blade in practical use.
My favorite non-Spyderco production knife. Go get one NOW. You won't regret it.
