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.
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.

Not so great
Hello,Came not sharp at all ! A real spoon. It's a problem for OKC in general they need to adress it, I won't buy again until they don't sort it out.I sharpened it with several wet stones but I don't like the angle of the blade and the result is not so great. Don't bother using the stone thay came with it, it's absolute crap and I cound not find a proper way to use it or have info about it.However the knife is very pointy, it's a good point.Blade is very solid and there is a good overall construction. A but heavy for the size...Handle is not the best quality but ergonomy is enough for me.Sheath is massive sh*t, there are screws inside ! It's damaging the blade leaving marks.Plus it's really hard to put it inside the sheath, it's like the blade is too big for the scabbard and you are forcing to put it... Not well designed, almost need 2 hands.The price is low and it does the job of cutting into soft airplane metal (what it's also designed for), but it has many flaws that could be easily corrected. With all that I think it should be 30-20% cheaper.
