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.

Classic working knife
Up front I bought this knife because it appeared in the movie Red Dawn '84. I have always wanted one and after the passing of Powers Boothe a month ago I finally purchased one. It's a solid knife that I'm sure would serve me well if I ever had to bail out behind enemy lines. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that the rivets that hold the sharpening stone pouch onto the main sheath scratch up the blade on withdrawal or insertion. Nobody wants their blade scratched when inserting or withdrawing.
