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.

Ka-Bar 1271 Fighter Review
Great knife. Quality is evident in the construction, great grip, fit and finish and it came very sharp. Blade thickness is just right.I wish the sheath used a strap to secure the knife over the quillion or hand guard instead of the 2 straps that secure the grip. Overall a very good knife for the money.

no welds at all,,
i dont know who thinks that ka-bars have any kind of welds on them,,they are wrong if you watch the video ka-bar has of their factory operations youll see the blade and the tang ARE A SINGLE PIECE the guard is press fitted on during the handle fitting process and pinned on butt cap which is all done under extreme force my frnds dad was a marine in vietnam and his ka-bar was made the same way they are made today except his scabbard is aluminum with a built in sharpener its a knife made for the army navy marines cant get any better then that ,,only warning i give is do not try n baton with it
