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.

The swamps.
Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great performing blade
I use it for around the campsite. Also I sharpened the blade's edge to a razor sharpness with a Spyderco sharpener and the blade literally shaves the hair off of my forearm. That's the reason I've always preferred 1095 carbon blades: they're very easy to sharpen. And I like my survival knife to have a metal pummel.

Not Bad
Had one of the original 80's ones...and have this one. It's not bad. Not my first choice as an 'only' survival knife, but great to have around camp. Would buy again.
