1095 steel

Recommended Posts

I have a karbar that's made from 1095 carbon steel, I don't know much about knives. Would I need to oil the blade to keep it rust free? I usually sharp the blade once every other month, but never wiped with oil.

I Googled 1095 steel for grins. It is a high carbon steel commonly used for higher end knives. It is not a stainless alloy. I would think WD or Remington gun oil would work fine.
