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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Materials, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Finish, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard
A good but basic knife; seems well made but will rust! Perfect for what I need as a good basic knife. There were no instructions how to look after blade or handle.

Made in America!
Made in USA! Buy it for that alone! Full tang means it is nearly indestructible. Mine still goes. Bought it b/c of that and the stacked leather looks and smells so great. Powder coating will eventually get w n t, but that's what it is for! A little oil and some time on a stone keeps this thing SO reliable for any job. Agree with a little snow seal or beeswax on leather only makes it look even better. I'm getting 2 more to store away for my 2 sons. It's not often anymore such a quality piece is made outside of China. Well done.
