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 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.

Cons: None
My Favorite Knife
Initially bought for a general purpose knife to be used in deer camp. From skinning to butchering to cooking and even a few things I never intended, the edge always held up. This is the one knife I recommend as standard equipment to anyone who asks. Thee only thing That I would improve is the sharpening stone, it is a little small and to coarse of grit to get a fine edge.
