While 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for - especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user's responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor on the blade.

handly little knife. Very useful spear blade shape. Excellent Esee fit and finish as usual. The handle feels short even with optional micarta scales installed. I do wish the handle was a bit longer and the knife made of stainless steel. 1095 while a very good carbon steel, rusts incredibly quickly. I would really like to see this in stainless steel.
I wasn't quite sure how I would like the candiru until I held it in my hand. As soon as I opened it up, I was in love with this wicked little blade. I bought both the candiru and the izula, and the candiru has been used far more often. It is a great neck knife, and the G10 handle scales make the knife very comfortable to work with. I absolutely would recommend this knife as a companion blade for a large knife, or just as an edc blade.
