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, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

The Ka-Bar will last a lifetime
I love it! I've been using mine as a tool and hiking/camping knife for 25 years, and it's still going strong. I'll have to write it into my will, because I think it's going to outlast me!
