An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's 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.

Form over function
So I was looking for a solid & reliable all purpose tool that could handle light chopping, hammering, & prying for both around the shop & around the house. The Ontario SP8 came highly recommended, but I've never had good experiences with saw back knives. So I decided to give this beast a try. As other reviews on other sites have stated, the sheath on this thing is pretty lousy. Drawing the tool from the sheath can be done in a pretty fluid motion- putting it back in is a different story. The big straps are supposed to enable the tool to be carried vertically on a MOLLE vest- I haven't tried that yet. On a tool bag, the single button used to secured the sheath constantly fails, so I just looped some 550 cord through the eyelets instead. As far as the tool goes, it can be used to hammer, although a bit easier on the broad sides. I have used it to chop through small nails & 2x4's- the blade shows no signs of damage. However, I wouldn't recommend trying to fell a tree with this thing. Prying also works pretty well. You probably won't be able to pry open a car door with it, but it does a respectable job of prying a car door apart. Now for what really kills this tool - the grip. Somewhere along the line, Ka-bar decided this tool had to look like a skeleton key. Mission accomplished. However, that leaves the user with a 1/4" steel shank with this huge swelling @ the pommel that gets really uncomfortable & awkward to hold let alone use. "That can be fixed with 550 cord or tape" you might say. No it can't, because the combination of the long sheath & horrible pommel only leave you less than 2" of grip to work with. My solution? I cut off the spine pommel & cut 1/2 the belly pommel off with a dip in it so it resembles the Condor Golok handle- I taped that up so NOW I have a reasonable all based covered beater tool. Then there's the price. An MSRP of about $100? Who are the kidding? $50 tops would be reasonable.
