ESEE Knives
 
Since 1997 Randall's Adventure & Training has designed no-nonsense, affordable field knives specifically targeted to military, law enforcement, and the special operations community. Many of their knives now serve in combat zones around the globe. The knives have a "no questions asked" lifetime warranty. ESEE Knives is also setting the standard for many local, state and federal law enforcement officers when it comes to high performance, compact sheath knives with multiple carry options. The NTOA scored the 3-inch fixed blade a 4.77 out of a possible 5. In addition to knives, ESEE also offers survival, land navigation, tracking and other training courses along with free survival information. 

This is the model that started it all. After designing the RAT-3 for Ontario Knife Company, it was the first design they brought over when ESEE Knives (Formerly RAT Cutlery) was formed. These 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 such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH. The ESEE-3 is still a favorite amongst law enforcement and military teams due to its light weight, thin profile and various sheath options.

ESEE-3s are shipped with a sheath instruction sheet (below) and Survival Business Card.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.

Cons: None
Everything I expected
This ESEE 3 got it's first chance to prove itself on a recent camping trip, and it proved itself worthy. I'm not easy to please, but I couldn't find anything the knife couldn't do. Sharp out of the box, great fit and finish, and very comfortable to carry. I will be adding another ESEE very shortly.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
ESEE quality at a great price
This ESEE 3 is my first ESEE product, and it hasn't disappointed me. I needed a dedicated camp knife, but also one that could step up to serious duties if needed. So far, it has performed beautifully. Everything about the knife has impressed me - from the overall quality of workmanship, to the quality of materials. If there is a con, it would be the sheath design, but it is still better than more expensive brands. Buy with confidence, and the Knife Center is outstanding in all respects. Happy camper.
