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.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

Cons: None
Almost perfect
I purchased this as a collectible but when it arrived, I realized that this thick slab of steel concealed a clever design which makes it perfect for the outdoors. The chisel ground tip is perfect for digging and prying while the blade thickness will allow it to handle most camp chopping duties easily. The saw back though has only limited utility. Thankfully, the serrations end about 2 inches firm the tip which leaves ample space for batoning. The sheath is solid and secure but possibly too secure as drawing this tool from the sheath will more of a violent pull rather than a smooth one. The only remaining question is whether or not this beast should get off the display case and get out where she belongs.
