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

Cons: None
Perfect emergency backpack knife for the wife
Great quality, great materials, really can't best this classic fixed blade. I have the full-sized KA-BAR. Got this smaller, easier to handle version for her smaller hands.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
A bit smaller than expected but a great little knife. Perfect for backup to a full size combat knife and the sheath is very secure, you really dont have to worry about the knife falling out.
