Ontario 6155 Journeyman Fixed Blade Knife 4" 1095 Carbon Steel Sheepsfoot Blade, Leather Handle, Leather Sheath
ON6155: 6155 Journeyman Fixed Blade
Ontario Knife Company
Modeled after the 499 Air Force Survival Knife, the Journeyman is built for those who wander the terrain instead of the skies. It features the same stacked leather handle, straight crossguard, and hex bolt end cap but is outfitted with a sheepsfoot blade with a slight amount of belly for a wide variety of uses. The spine has a milled area that is great for scraping, scaling and batoning and the black phosphate finish is meant to protect the steel, not look pretty. It has a very tough, rugged feel, as you'd expect but it's the wide blade, thin handle look that draws us to this knife. It is built to last and built to perform, you'll hardly ever pause when reaching for the Journeyman, no matter the cutting task at hand.

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.
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.
This product is USA born and raised.
