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.

My husband loves it!
I got my husband this knife as a gift that he been wanting for a long time, and when it got home he was beyond excited. It's pretty cute how excited he was. Just the look upon his face. This knife is totally reliable! He use this knife for everything to be honest.. I've always thought it's going to end up being full but I was wrong. Still very sharp! I recommend this knife for those men's who are into weapons and collection! You GOT to get one!

Pros: Materials, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Living up to it's history...
Usage: Practically everything with it.. light wood work, camping, unboxing stuff, etc... Satisfactory: Very High!!! A bit pricey, but once you own it.. you don't really need other fixed blade. Great weight (Heavy) that helps in cut, handle material resin is non-slip, nice finish on blade a razor sharp out of box. I like leather sheath, but a secured scabbard would be preferred. I truly feel this bowie knife lives up to it's claim as a dependent.
