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 Short Tanto - excellent knife!
The Ka-Bar Tanto exceeded my expectations. It has a VERY sharp edge and has held that edge despite a few camping trips where it was used for everything from shaving tinder to batoning kindling. Despite the treatment, it's good as new. Kydex sheath is well worth the few extra's well designed and has great retention of the knife. It's a high quality, made in USA, knife for an outstanding price. Well worth 3 times as much and holds and edge better than my +$100 knives. Size is perfect for a take everywhere knife. Perfect for my flight bag on the wilderness flying trips. Best knife I've ever purchased for what I needs and uses. Who says you can't get a quality US-made knife for a good price anymore?

Good LBV Knife
I was looking for a Plan Jane fixed blade field knife that would not break the bank but was something of quality along with reliability. I wanted another KA-BAR and when I saw the Short Version Tanto blade I liked the way it looked right a way but then when I saw the cost I had to get it. I was not disappointed when it arrived. Except for the Sheath, It is a solid black plastic. It would be nice if it came in sand brown, OD green or foliage anything but reflective black. It is not a cut down machete Hollywood style knife so if that is what you’re looking for you will be disappointed. If you want a good solid fixed blade field knife this is it.
