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: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Very useful, seems to be great quality
So far I have not had the chance to use the Spax for any serious work. However, I do think it is very well made and will be very useful for what it is meant for. I did take it to a 2x scrap of lumber. With little effort it took large chunks of wood out with each hack. And by hack, I mean I let the tool do the work, I wasn't using any elbow grease. The spike penetrated the lumber easily as well. I'd highly recommend the Spax if you think you will ever need it. I also think its a great tool to have, just for the "what if" scenario. The only Con: the standard scabbard is just ok. It has a swivel loop for a belt, but nothing to tie down or strap to anything else and loop is large (understandably so, but will probably rattle around on a regular belt.)
