1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.

Great multi purpose field knife!
Some folks down grade Ontario knives because of fit, finish, etc Allegedly the heat treatment is poor. But I am here to tell you this is a very nice knife. It is big enough to use for heavy camp chores (wood processing, shelter construction, etc.) yet small enough for food processing, fuzz sticks, some fine carving and cutting. In short it has the excellent blade profile of all the RAT knives: a decent point, great belly for slicing, and a good straight edge for general cutting and chopping. I like the full flat grind this blade as well. Mine showed up with a very sharp, evenly ground edge. The tan micarta scales are a bit blocky, but are well fitted to the tang. I can sand them down a bit later if I like, but I had no trouble chopping all the branches off of an 8"diameter saw palmetto, and then chopping it down to get it out of my yard. The finish was a bit uneven on this knife, but I didn't buy it to be pretty. It showed very little wear after chopping up that palmetto. However, like all finishes, it will wear. I will probably strip it, and force a patina on the blade anyway. I am not in the military anymore, so I am not too worried about light discipline. The edge sliced easily through paper right out of the box and still did after chopping up a palmetto and processing some meat and vegetables for lunch. I don't think there is any problem with the heat treatment on this blade. It is made with 1095 steel, so it will rust if neglected. However, I love how easy it is to sharpen, and it's edge retention is good enough for me. The sheath is sturdy and has a small pocket for a whetstone, fire starter, etc. It has two adjustable straps for retention instead of the single non-adjustable strap earlier RATs had. It isn't a kydex sheath, but this helps keep the cost down. There are numerous aftermarket sheaths available. I paid just under $80 for mine and for the money, this is an excellent value. If you want a good heavy duty field knife, that is made in the U.S.A., then I think this will serve you well.

Exactly what is expected!
Great product (what else would I expect from Ontario)! Didn't expect that sheath... nice bonus. Everything looked great. Have not had a chance to use the knife yet but have no doubts of how it will perform. Very satisfied w/ the knife and KnifeCenter!
