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

quality blade
You can tell this is a quality made product. The knife itself is well made and feels heavier than I would have guessed, but that's just because it's a solid well made design, it has a leather sheath which I particularly like, outdoors in the winter some handles can become very cold or slippery, but the leather gives you grip and resists the cold.. It comes with a leather sheath, I have seen other knife sheaths but this one was much of a much higher quality, the stitching was excellent and the overall design was more rugged. Overall I think the blade is excellent, although it would have been useful to know the angle of the blade, I suspect it's 20 degrees and I know there are ways of finding it out, but still would have been useful to know beforehand, also the blade while it was sharp, it could use a higher grit sharpener to get it to it's full potential. Came in a box with a little hologram of authenticity, which made me smile : )
