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.
Nylon Sheath
Nylon Sheath
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Materials, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
not what it seems
So on the visual side it looks likea big heavy heavy blade. its not,its actually very light for its size. The handle sucks its like gripping a baseball bats fat end. its a full flat grind so its very thick on the spine about 6mm so you can split wood very very easy and get a razors edge on it but you need to re-profile it a lot with a file its uneven and blunt from factory. if you like me have a medium to small hands you should go for the models with the double rubber hilt its smaller overall. sheath sucks but all their sheaths suck. Ontario's weigh less then you expect but perform very well so its great blades for backpacking it actually tends to come with you and not collect dust.

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
This is a massive knife, looks great but feels even better. I've used it to slice meat and will use it when going outdoors. Not too crazy about the sheath but it's ok. LOVE the knife though.

Excellent Knife!
I have had the spec plus survival for over 12 years and used it for almost everything. Hiking, camping, survival. I have made campfires build camps chopped down entire trees with it and it always got the job done. The only thing now, because all the powder coating wore off it rusts pretty fast when it gets wet. 1095 Carbon steel is very strong, holds its edge pretty good and is easy to sharpen. But if you are going to be in wet conditions for longer periods without any means of drying of greasing the knife you should consider something else. Some people take a towel with grease with them when they use High Carbon knives.
