1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Cons: None
EDC all day everyday
I own the Eskabar, the D'Eskabar, and now 2 Eskabar's with the serrated combo edge. I carry one or two of them daily. The BK14 has a powder coat finish. The D2 version has no finish and the BK14SG has a slick flat black finish.The BK14 doesn't rattle in the sheath. The other two models do. Retention levels vary from sheath to sheath but the coating seems to have some affect on retention. All of them came to me razor sharp. The available coatings seem to be on par with the Ka-Bar Neck Knife, which I took into the ocean without any resulting rust. Great value for anyone wanting a EDC knife. Buy the scales if you have bigger hands.

best all around knife
I own the Becker necker and the eskabar, both great quality knives. I've always liked the iszula handles so I bought the eskabar with the g-10 handles. What a difference those make I own more expensive knives that don't perform like the these two. Plus made in the U.S.A can't be beat. Also knife center great to deal with only place I get my knives.

Good knife
Great base to a small personal emergency kit. Wrapped rubber ranger bands around the sheath, and put inside it a small compass, an LED flashlight, sail needles, bankline, chlorine pills. Weighs almos nothing around the neck, so can be used even during sleeping hours. Just love it!
