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.
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.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
My Favorite Knife
Despite a sheath that leaves much to be desired, this knife is a beast in the bush. It eats chores and asks for seconds. Very well balanced, quality high carbon, and perfectly sized for that "one tool" option -- doing both heavy lifting and surgical work equally well. Enormous value for the prices being asked, I recommend this knife very highly. If quick, easy access from the sheath is a top priority for you, you may want to shop around for an aftermarket kydex or leather sheath, because this knife does not come with a great sheath.

Worth the $90.00 but that's about it
If you are looking for a mid-priced field knife for chopping and utility use nand are on a budget this may be for you. The good is the sheath, quality of build, handle material and blade material. This is a tough knife that will take abuse and due to the finish of the blade not subject to rust with basic care. The bad; the blade..... 1095 is a great steel for this kind of knife, unfortunately these knifes are not heat treated very well. They do not pass the file test and thus don't hold an edge well. You can get it fairly sharp but with a little cutting or chopping the lose the edge quickly and require reshapining or reforming the edge. I've tried a convex edge and many angles of edges with varying results, but none met my satisfaction. The 1095 carbon steel is just too soft without a good heat treatment. The softer the tougher blade, but this is just too soft!
