OKC 5160 Bushcraft is a truck, not an SUV.
First, 5160 is an alloy steel, 1095 a simple carbon steel. They are close in performance but 5160 at 54 Rc gets my cigar for toughness and ease of sharpening. In my experience, both are good field use blade steels. 5160 alloy costs more to make a blade. 1095 is a cheaper knife steel to make a blade, but still with good performance at higher rockwell. 5160 has both chromium for better hardening and silicon for toughness. Take your choice. Secondly, the only reason I did not rate this knife a 5 was because I had to finish the wood grip slabs before use. A light sanding and then applied Ballistol, with their new disposable cloths (great product, bio-degradable) and I was good to go. I also used an extra leather OKC pilots survival sheath to replace the nylon one (used Ballistol on leather).
