The ESEE-5 is shipped with a black Kydex sheath and a Clip Plate (allows for belt carry by attaching directly to the Kydex sheath. Includes mounting hardware.)

Feedback from a SERE instructor after testing a production model of the ESEE-5 (taken from ESEE Knives's website):

Just got back and I am impressed. The knife is everything that we're looking for. Tough, durable, practical, affordable, and useful. I can't tell you how many fires that I started with the help of the ESEE-5 and it was a great trip to try out a knife. The weather was unseasonably cold, mostly in the teens but sometimes in the negatives. My friend and I were starting a fire for some cold students and he was bashing his (manufacturer's name removed) through some sections of a downed tree it broke right at the handle, like most bolt knives and (manufacturer's name removed) seem to do. I don't know if it was the cold weather, the perfect angle, or something else but it was a brand new (manufacturer's name removed) and it broke right in half. At the same time I was beating the daylights out of the ESEE-5 hoping to bend, break, or at the very least damage the paint job. I failed to do any of these things and my friend became more and more interested in the ESEE-5 as I found more and more things that I like about it. I'll get some pictures and a few videos this next trip and send them to you ASAP. Thanks again for the great knife!

("Bolt" Knives are knives built with reduced tangs to accommodate handles. Usually these knives have a pommel cap that is threaded or riveted in place. These reduced tang knives will not accept a lot of prying. Examples of this are standard issue pilot's survival knives.)

Note: Our knives are made from high carbon 1095 steel. And 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.

Cons: None
ESSE 5 Plain Edge
I only knew him for references, but to have it in my hands I realized its strength, weight that provides security, and the obvious appearance of powerful tool. Prepared for the worst situations and hostile areas of the world. I am the owner of magnificent knives from Germany, Sweden and Spain, the best of the best. But I had not seen anything like my new ESSE 5 ..., he will be my friend when I'm in trouble in some remote part of the world. My military experience, Marine Corps (Here called: Infantería de Marina), in my country, Spain.

Pros: Overall Quality, None
Cons: Weight
Fine knife
the coating means no fire steel striking ... the rounded pommel would serve better purpose considering not everyone has the chance to escape from a helicopter ...

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Finish, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Superior knife.
By far the best all around knife I have ever owned. In a conversation, I was asked, "If you were only allowed ONE knife to be taken into the bush for an undetermined time limit, what would it be?" Without a second thought it would be the ESEE-5. It is meant to be used and abuse! You can feel the quality and toughness the moment it is in your hand.
