Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
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.

Made in America!
Made in USA! Buy it for that alone! Full tang means it is nearly indestructible. Mine still goes. Bought it b/c of that and the stacked leather looks and smells so great. Powder coating will eventually get w n t, but that's what it is for! A little oil and some time on a stone keeps this thing SO reliable for any job. Agree with a little snow seal or beeswax on leather only makes it look even better. I'm getting 2 more to store away for my 2 sons. It's not often anymore such a quality piece is made outside of China. Well done.

One of the best knives I own
When I found this product I was Just looking for a quality Texas legal Every Day Carry knife. For around $40 this knife can't be beat! For a knife designed to cut through aircraft, it cuts wood very well. Popular misconception is that the saw is for wood, it is actually for cuting through aluminum. The stacked leather handle is comfortable, and the blade is great steel. Mine was made in 2011. Great for backpacking, youth, camping, hand to hand combat, or just about anything. You would be stupid not to buy this knife.
