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

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
first Ka bar
my first ka bar knife and I chose the tanto. So far Iove it, and i love the length of the blade. The handle is nice and feels good in my grip. It's a fighting knife and its gonna be used for self defense purposes and cutting soft materials only. I want to baby the edges and keep it clean and sharp much as I can. The sheath isn't too bad, I like kydex style but everyone has their preferences

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Very sharp. Excellent balance. Mean looking!
Solid. Sharp. Great balance. It is a tad longer than I prefer but that could be an advantage if I ever had to use it for self defense. Bought it for carrying on a boar hunt for safety and a tool for whatever I may need it for. It is a perfect stabbing slicing machine. Sheath is very nice but an inch or so longer than it needs to be. Got nothing to complain about. Havn't used it much yet other than cutting veggies and meat on a cutting board to see how it cuts. Cuts nice.
