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.

Esee 3 Knife
I use mine for everything short of hardcore shelter building, though I have tried it once to see the practical results. Hey, gotta know your gear. It worked but it was a small lean-to shelter cut from aspen and pinon.In short, it is durable and fits my hand well. I've broken ice for boiling water, skinned small and big game. Love it.

Fantastic – Get It!
I live in the northern forests/mountains & go regularly to the Amazon on research. Purchased this knife for small back-up with machete on my next jungle trip. I am impressed! It feels great in the hand with superb fit & finish; lovely lines. Not only beautiful, it will be a first-class bush tool. I prefer a clip point but not sharpened; this has a nice drop. They was out of the Mil model but seeing this version in hand I like it better – love the green! Will carry for years...KnifeCentre gave first rate support. Thank you Nick!!!!

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
Knife is very well made and strong. Only rated knife at a 4 because I haven't used it yet. I was Army infantry and this imo would be a good knife for feild work. Sheath is one of the best I have ever used and can be belt or vest carried in different positions. Very sharp out of box. Will be using for hunting and camping.
