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 (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Nylon Sheath
Nylon Sheath
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong

A tank of a knife
The shipping was super fast- I received my two knives in under 4 days- yes, I bought two of these, one for myself and one for a good friend. Upon opening it, I was honestly surprised at how hefty this knife turned out to be. I already owned the machete from this ZK line, and this tanto was no lightweight even next to it. It was razor sharp right out of the box, and even the little side-knife that came with it was very sharp. For the price, you get two knives, a very useful and heavy duty sheath with pouch, cords and extra scales- it's a very good deal indeed. My only complaint is that since a tanto is a stabbing weapon, this knife should have a more pronounced guard to prevent hand from slipping forward especially if the hilt is wet. As it is currently it actually makes a much better chopper than stabber.

A Beast of a Battle Blade
This knife's robust build has to be felt to understand what it is capable of. Bigger geometry than as it looks in pictures! Very strong - unique serrations that can withstand heavy chopping but also shred rope with great ease. Changing to the black handles slabs (supplied) takes it to a serious covert ops look. Easy to sharpen. Good stabbing penetration. Tip can bore a nice hole to make the Ojibwa survival bird snare. Good product. Great price at Knife Center!
