Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
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, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Former Marine
i own a few of these kabar style knives. I like the feel of the handle and weight. I also like that the blade isnt powder coated.This knife has a retro look. Blade isnt razor sharpe yet it cuts just fine after all it is a combat utility knife. You want to shave get a razor. Great knife and knifecenter has allways come threw with there products and custermer service. Sheath is middle of the road. I order a leather sheath with USMC stamped that fits Ontario usmc combat knife P4.
