1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
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 (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Materials
Cons: None
Excellent knife
A classic not for nothing.it's super light for the size, came razor sharp and pointy and with excellent finish, solid construction. Sheath is ok, leather seems fine despite what people are saying.It's not the best at bushcraft but can be used to do it as well even if it's not it's prime use so I consider it a plus for that matter.only con maybe is the handle is a bit big and has not the best ergonomy but i still can firmly hold it so it's why it's not perfect 5/5.

Awesome blade poor sheath
Perfect blade couldn’t ask for anything better to get the job done, however the sheath is cheap leather and I can tell that it’ll be a problem in the future
