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.

History Proven Classic
If you ever go outside, you'd be hard pressed to find a more proven blade. Most people are familiar with this design going back to WWII. This iteration is put together using more modern materials in both handle, and sheath material. There was a period a few years back where it seemed Ka Bars were being manufactured on antiquated equipment, lacked good quality control, and had terrible edge geometry. Not so with the latest batch ! The demo model was sharp, and when the retailer let me check my purchase before leaving the store, it too was nice and sharp fresh from the box/factory. I paid a little more going through the traditional brick-and-mortar store because knives are my weakness, and I suffer from "GOTTA-HAVE-IT-NOW" syndrome. But the value for the dollar is there regardless. The sheath carries nice and flat, adding to the overall value.

Solid knife at a reasonable price
I stow this next to my bed in case of intruders and carry it on camping trips as an all purpose, heavy-duty knife. The knife is top quality and comes out of the box as sharp as you would like, capable of cutting paper like the proverbial hot knife through butter. The sturdiness of the knife, high functioning grip, serrations, and solid scabbard make it a good buy for someone wanting a workhorse of a knife.

Hand-held Toolkit
For me,this knife is like a multi-tool. Few years ago, someone gave me a used, infomercial-quality "survival" knife. I didn't care at first, but I found myself using it on a regular basis around the house. I do know about high-quality kitchen knives, but this is my first real "knife" knife. It's designed for combat, with most of the weight in the handle so u can maneuver the big blade. Not great for chopping wood. Point is needle fine. Serrations cut thru .5in branches in 4-6 strokes. Sheath is secure but not stubborn, good for hammering. Guard is flimsy, tang is not "full".
