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.
Wood Handles
Wood Handles
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.

Solid Value
5 Stars for this $25 knife package. The edge was even but not shaving sharp out of the box. The Chinese 1095 quickly took a shaving sharp edge and is a hard edge. This is a hollow grind that looks similar in shape to the Scandi grind of the Condor Bushlore and was even on both sides. The final edge was at about 20 degrees. The walnut scales on mine were good but shrunk slightly from their original fitting. They were comfortable "as is". I sanded mine to round edges to my tastes. The sheath is a good design, leather, and should last a while. None of this for $25 should be expected to be an heirloom. It is a very strong and good knife, holds an edge, and will provide a budget minded purchaser great value and utility. Half the price of a Condor knife which is half the price of other quality options, this is a good knife to learn with and practice skills. So, 5 Stars for this price class of knife.

Great Bushcrafting & EDC Knife
I love the convenience of a good horizontal carry fixed blade knife, so I had to check out this one. Even though the measurements are clearly noted in the description, it's longer than I originally though. However, it's not so long that it's combersome or awkward to wear horizontally. The edge of the blade came sharp enough to shave the hair off my arm, it's evenly beveled, pointy and very sturdy. The blade is much thicker than the photo leads one to believe, which is a good thing. After several aggressive cutting and chopping tests on a dried tree branch, it held its edge just fine, which I would expect from 1095 carbon steel. It's even stamped "1095 HIGH CARBON STEEL on the backside. The scales are symmetrical, very nicely finished, without cracking or chipping and are tightly secured to the tang with smoothly peened, solid brass pins. The hollow brass lanyard hole is nicely done, as well. Also, it feels good and secure in my hands with plenty of room to grip. The sheath is made with a good quality, pliable leather, has a decent leather welt and is securely stitched and riveted. Although I don't believe I'll use them, the hollow rivets are a nice addition that would aid in lashing it to something. The two leather straps for horizontal carry attach together with hook & loop rather than the typical snaps, but they are strong, so I don't see a problem. It also has a vertical carry leather belt loop on the back. Horizontally, it wears securely on my belt in several positions. The snap closure that secures the knife in the sheath snaps together good and tight. Considering the overall quality of the materials used and workmanship in relation to the price, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this knife to anyone.
