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 (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

great knife, here's my mod
I am a long-term Knife Center fan. There are just too many fakes on Amazon. But I trust this place. I was gifted my Ka-Bar and pulled out a dremel and took off the top ear of the hand guard. Completely changed the handling of this knife. I do not chop firewood with a knife, so I expect this knife to outlive me.

Cons: None
You won't regret it if you buy it
I haven't used it heavily, but It's lasted me 18 years. I bought it in 2002 when I joined the Marines. It was in the field with me. I've taken it camping. It's been stored in various climates buried in gear. It has seen years where I've taken care of it and years where I haven't. It's still going very, very strong. The sheath is old fashioned tech but it's kept right up with the knife and in the end that's what I want. How do I list cons for a knife that's lasted me 18 years and is still as good as this one is? 100% on everything on longevity alone.
