Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
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.

Cons: Finish, None
Tougj and efficient
Right size and balance. Sharp and ready to go. Put this to work on the first day, fire pit duty. Was worried about the sandpaper textured finish but splitting a few small logs smoothed it right out. Still covers the blade for protection. Handle is big and firm. I may round a couple spots but I'll give my hand a few weeks to get a feel for it. Sheath is good but I think I want a kydex version for easier access.

Cons: Materials, Blade Sharpness, None
Good one
So far, I have only used the knife around the house. My only complaint is it did not come very sharp. But 2 minutes on the Sharpmaker brought the edge right out. .
