    A bargain. This is the only model BR have made in 1095 for many years and they say they won't be repeating it. Good roomy handle and excellent blade shape. I rate mine (exactly the same) very highly.

    Yes. Rusts along with the best of them. Very similar behaviour to a Svord so you do need to look after them a bit.
    The BR heat treatment of 1095 is very good. I can do a complete deer without touching it with a steel. Either KSF or DLT have the Phoenix3 on special at the moment (the BR market didn't like the 1095). Good deal, but not as good a deal as the one above.

    Of the carbon steels used by BR 1095 is the worst for rusting, then A2. V3 is quite rust resistant. 4V is in between A2 and 3V.

    The stainless steels they use are very good. CPM 154 is nicely balanced for rust resistance, ease of sharpening and toughness. Elmax is a stainless that I have never seen blemish and holds an edge like crazy. Bit harder to sharpen and not as tough though (toughness is its resistance to breaking and chipping). CPMS35VN is a damned good stainless and nicely balanced.

    You pay your money and make your choice.

    I usually have a rag lightly impregnated with ballistol in a zip lock in my kit. Should cover it?

    I used to generously drop gun oil into my leather sheath of a lovely little Finnish carbon steel knife I used to carry. A quick wipe before use and it was fine. Wipe afterwards w the same oilly tissue or whatever before sliding it back into sheath. Worked a treat back in the day
