I'm looking for a 6 inch, give or take, fixed blade. The esee 6 is really close to what I'm looking for, and I here a lot of good things about them and 1095 steel, but the thought of rust keeps me from pulling the trigger. All my knifes are stainless except for my GSO 4.1 in 3v. So far it seems like it will hold pretty well. I've never had any knive in 1095. Any imput would be great. Should I just get the esee 6, other good options I should look at that are in that size range.
