1095 Carbon Steel
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.

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Material
Cons: None
Loved it... You will too.
I bought one of these machetes about 10 years ago. I cannot say how many situations it was useful for. Its weight is heavy toward the tip, meaning you can to some good chopping with it. Eventually I got to the point where I left the camp axe at home. You can baton through anything. With a machete proper technique is critical - no death grip. If you see reviews of these breaking this is why, Improper operation. Remember this tool is made of a higher carbon steel than most. You really can count on this tool to last a long time if you learn to use it and maintain it. This leads me to why I'm getting a new one. On my last campout I let a friend use it, (I actually chop my firewood with this) he tried to do the same and somehow it broke. I would recommend this tool to anyone, and get a good sheath, i like the leather ones with a pocket for a stone.
