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.

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: Blade Sharpness, Finish
not a bad knife
I'm starting to collect knives so it just kinda sits around but its ever thing I thot it would be just a raw old school army knife its heavy duty the blade needed honded and smoothed out win I first got it and that took some time but that just means it will hold a sharp edge thru lots of abuse and just needs leather treatment on the Handel but that's what I liked about it you can make it what you want I hate ordering a knife and its not all you thot it wold be this knife is ever thing they say it is and you make it the way you want it to look like the sheath is nice too not just some cheep knilon crap most knifes come with enemy more I have no regrets about this one im happy I ordered this knife

Cons: Finish, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard
A good but basic knife; seems well made but will rust! Perfect for what I need as a good basic knife. There were no instructions how to look after blade or handle.
