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.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.

Ontario tak 1
I Purchased The Limited Edition That Has Been Discontinued But They Are Both Identical except The Metal Used. Either Way The Tak 1 Is Awesome! The ergonomics Are Just Right And I Feels A Lot Lighter Than Other Ranger Series Knives I've Owned Which Is A Big Plus For Me As Weight Is Always An Issue On My Backpacking Trips. I Highly Recommend This Knife. Sorry About The Caps My Phone Is Acting Wonky.

Good tough knife.
This is a very stout knife. Mine needed a little TLC on the Micarta, This took about five minutes and some sandpaper. The edge was a little uneven, but smoothed out fine when I sharpened it. The steel is very good. It took a very keen edge, and after some batoning, whittling and food prep, it was still very sharp. This is a good size for general field/bushcraft use, though it is little heavy. The heft allows it to take much more abuse then its thinner brethren however. I love the handle shape and blade angle on this pattern. If you extend your arm out straight you notice the point is still out straight, rather than pulling up. This helps keep my hand from being fatigued during use despite this knife's heft. The sheath is not great, but I picked up a nice leather pouch type for it. The brown leather and tan Micarta look great together. 1095 is great steel. Just oil it from time to time. For the money, I don't think you can beat it.

Great Knife
This is an awesome knife. I had heard good things about this brand and was looking for a good bush-craft/survival knife. this is a hard use knife i have had no problems using it for even the toughest jobs. It easily splits wood and will cut larger tree limbs when using a baton. This is one tough and solid knife.
