TOOL STEEL SERIES - 1095 High Carbon Tool Steel is also referred to as, “Cutlery Spring Steel”, and is well known for its use in manufacturing commercial saw blades. This extreme high carbon steel hones to a razor sharp edge (better than any stainless steel), retains its edge (better than most stainless steels), and is easier to sharpen, (compared to stainless steel). This steel is often used to manufacture car springs, rail road spikes, and hand tools. SILVER STAG 1095 blades are heat treated to a 58 Rockwell Hardness. Traditional jewelling is applied to the blades. This process involves taking a wire mesh bit and pressing down on the blade with a drill press to create swirls on the blade. The indented swirl pattern on the blade surface helps the blade retain oil for corrosion protection. You can’t go wrong using one of our Tool Steel designs for extreme field work.
Note: The following Tool Steel Series models include a very high-quality leather Pouch or Hand-laced Snap sheath. In general, blades under 4” include a Pouch sheath that has both vertical and horizontal belt carry options and lanyard tie that secures the knife to the sheath. Select models with blades over 4” include an upgraded hand-laced snap sheath.
Regardless of blade length, a few of the following have both sheath design options, and you will have the opportunity to specify the sheath design you would like by selecting Pouch or Snap from the drop down box on the item page before adding the knife to the cart.
