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. 

The ESEE-4 is one of the most popular ESEE knives ever made. With its 0.1875" blade thickness, it's the perfect blend between toughness and cutting efficiency all in a small package. If you can only choose one, then the ESEE-4 is the do-all workhorse of the ESEE line. 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-4 is still a favorite amongst law enforcement and military teams due to its light weight, thin profile and various sheath options.

ESEE-4s are shipped with a sheath instruction sheet (below) and Survival Business Card.

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.
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.

The best choice in 4" blade.
I have been long time looking for a good 4" full tag blade.There are a lot of excellent models, but, in IMHO the ESEE RAT 4 the perfect K.I.S.S knife/Sheath. Is not a "fancy" knife, is a tool to use it...

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Handle Material
After a lot of research, I decided my first "hard use" knife would be an Esee4. I am very impressed with the overall quality and out of the box sharpness of my Esee. This was my first time ordering from KnifeCenter and I was very pleased with the service. I will recommend Esee and KnifeCenter in the future.

Solid knife for a great price
So far I'm really enjoying this knife. The heft is solid and the blade profile makes it a top choice for numerous applications. The layout of the sheath lends itself to well to multiple carry options. I lashed some paracord through the rivet holes and carry it horizontally across the belt. This keeps the profile low and the blade is available to either hand. The handle may feel a little cramped for those with large or fleshy hands, but it fits me like a glove. The micarta handles are just a touch slick for my tastes. I'm thinking of getting them golfball stippled with scalloped edges to enhance grip. Overall, I think this is a winner.
