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.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Great Customer Service
There were some shipping issues that were mostly my fault, but the people at Knife Center were great at dealing with it and keeping me informed. What I did finally get is a well balanced, sturdy, sharp, utility knife that can take whatever I need out of it while looking mean. It's hard to beat a KA-BAR.
