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.

Review For Ontario Survival Machete
First, The Ontario Survival Machete is everything that the Woodsman's Pal is not and this is why I made the purchase. I bought it for the following criteria: Self-Defense,batoning firewood, light trail clearing, some pruning and loping off heads of large fish. The edge is literally shaving sharp and its angle is around 35 degrees for utility use. I may take it to 30 degrees as an U-Tube reviewer suggested. The weight and size are perfect for Florida woods. There's a sweet spot between weight, length and momentum and the SM has it down perfectly. Florida woods are extremely thick so a long machete will get caught in the over-head limbs. The weight/momentum of the swing easily cuts limbs and fish heads usually with one swing. (I live on Tampa Bay and catch large fish) This SM will accompany me camping, hunting and to any type of wilderness building project that comes up. The saw back is an nn-issue with me. I may use it to obtain kindling for fire making though. The sheath is of good design and offers out-standing security but not speed. Placing it and out of the sheath all day might be a strain. Maybe it needs to loosen up. I might make a plastic holster for it and use its hardware for belt attachment. It is still a very good sheath. The end of the knife is perfect for prying--which you can not do with an expensive knife. I do not foresee this breaking from any activity! The handle is very well designed even though I have small to medium hands. One with large hands will be thankful as well. The blade steel is TOUGH and durable as with all Ontario products. This Survival Machete is made for war and I do not see it breaking or having any problems. The finish seems to be durable and "military" by nature. The safety strap is more than adequate but I may replace it with a double strand of para-cord...yes, if pulled correctly...2 strands will go through the handle's eyelet. .

Pros: None
Cons: None
Heavy but does not split as well as my Schrade SCH10, which is why I got it. A friend said the saw back ruined the knife.
