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.

Cons: None
Very hefty without overkill
I've owned more than 2 dozen TOPS models, and this is one of my favorites. It's definitely a large knife, with great heft and balance, plus very ergonomic handle. The edge geometry is perfect for a 1/4" thick blade, with the width allowing a very sharp grind. Workmanship top-notch, as always from TOPS. I wish there was a lanyard hole, given the weight of it, but a few turns of friction tape in the middle of the handle gives enough extra grip for most tasks, and I can always tape a lanyard on when needed. Very happy with it.
