As a present, I'm looking at getting my BIL a new knife. He spends a lot of time outdoors and am looking at the usual suspects like Swamp Rat, Fallkniven, Glock's field knife, the BK2, ESEE, etc. My plan includes a custom leather sheath from some place like Hedgehog Leather Works or Sagewood. http://www.hedgehogleatherworks.com/ http://www.sagewoodgear.com/BK2_Sheaths_s/1815.htm I know Carbon sharpens "easier" and stainless is more rust "resistance" and a little TLC can go a long way but I'm reading alot how SR101 rusts like "crazy". I even read one post where a guy claimed he bought a knife and in the time is shipped across country the guy's fingerprints rusted the blade. Has anyone ever had a knife actually surface rust or even pit although you cared for it properly?
