How about we investigate the highlights:
It has a “titanium covering on hardened steel cutting edge” that Wiss says is 3 times harder than treated steel, for longer life and “a top of the line look.”

What sort of hardened steel is it produced using? They were going for a “top of the line look?” That’s not how I would portray what I see. folding pocket knife usage
Proceeding onward… the blade has a Tanto-style sharp edge, with a penetrating tip and a halfway serrated front line. Wiss says this gives greatest utility.
It highlights double thumb studs and spring-helped edge opening system. What’s more, a coordinated edge secure holds it decidedly position. Umm… that is not a casing lock. (At any rate not contrasted with blades with fundamental edge bolt outlines.)
