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.

Excellent, but!
I am extremely thrilled to own this knife. The history, the quality, the reputation, the build, all top notch. Made in America. But, I feel obligated to point out one issue, which is not a deal breaker for me, but needs to be pointed out: The sheath is made in Mexico. In all sincerity, this makes me question KA-BAR. I do not expect this sheath to have the life I would like to see in a sheath. One made in the USA. This was obviously a cost cutting measure. But in all sincerity, I would spend the extra bucks for one made in the USA. To me, this fact cheapens the entire enchilada. I hope KA-BAR rethinks this policy of having the sheath made in Mexico.
