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

Absolutely Beautiful!!
My son-in-law just got out of the marines and I wanted to give him something special... I heard him talk about how the Marines trained him with a K-Bar but never issued them a knife...which is crazy and another story all together... Anyway I got him this knife for Christmas and I was blown away but the quality...

They don't get much better .
This is one of the best heavy use utility knives you can buy . The edge is excellent , if you dull it the edge re-sharpens easily . The leather handle is not uncomfortable and gives you a good gripping surface to work with . All in all an excellent choice for camping , yard work survival or any other use you can think of . The knife will not disappoint you.
