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, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Steel Handles

Pros: None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
I expected far better out of a small version of a marine corps fighting knife. the handle is far too small to get a decent grip and the point at the back top edge digs into the palm. It's as if they designed it simply to look cool and not be useful. There is no cross guard so there is nothing to stop your fingers from sliding onto the blade in a strong thrust. On top of all this the sheath has the same dulling issues as the Eskabar sheath. The glass fibers dull the knife quickly and this was a known issue on the eskabar and they repeated the stupid error on this sheath. Since it is known the glass fibers abrade the metal they could have simply made the sheath grind on it in a way that sharpened it rather than dulled it. Come on Kabar, you can do better

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
I was very disappointed with this product. This knife should only retail for about 12 bucks. The sheath is cheap and the handle is to short.
