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.
Kydex Sheath

Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
Go to survival knife
This blade is heavy, but I like the solid feel. It handles battoning like a champ. Easy to sharpen. I like the kydex sheath, but it does ride high on the hip. I am getting used to it, but sometimes it gets in the way. Easy to add and remove to your belt, though. Tried the built in firestarter, but is pretty awkward to use with the indentation on the back. I would much rather use the back of the knife... but of course, it is enameled. I thought about stripping off the baked on black enamel, but you know, it really is tough and stands up to normal abuse much more than I thought it would. Didn't have the heart.

Cons: None
Topps Got This One Right, FOR SURE
This knife is AWESOME. Everything about it is solid. You can tell that a true Bushcraftsman made this knife. I haven't used the indentation for bow-and-drill fire starting yet, but that's a nice feature. The blade came with a certification from Topps with a promise to sharpen the knife if you sent it in to them (which I thought was very cool). The Kydex sheath is pretty good, but I think as 'Bushcraft' as this knife is, it deserves something more natural, like a leather sheath. It's nice having the ferro-rod too. It carves well and batons well. This is a meaty blade with some serious attitude. Truly, a piece of craftiness from Topps.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Fine knife
The quality of construction and attention to detail are top notch .The weight to size ratio is a bit off .Had it came with a 6 to 8 inch blade it would be almost perfect. That being said ,if I had to hit the backcountry for an extended period with only one knife this one would be at the top of the list. If you are considering a Buck punk forget it and get this one instead The overall quality is equal to custom jobs costing 2 or 3 times as much. The fire rod and striker notch seems to be an after thought , but I carry my firemakings seperately anyway. I removed the rod and holder from the sheath entirely
