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.

Excellent knife!
I bought this knife as a retirement gift for a colleague because I wanted to send him off with the best! This knife does not disappoint, it looks great and performs even better. Excellent as a bushcraft or tactical/combat knife. I will be buying one for myself as well!

Great Knife
I spent a long time researching, reading reviews, and being pretty picky when looking for a mid-sized fixed blade to take backpacking. This knife consistently stood out when I made comparisons against MANY knives. I'm very glad I got this ESEE, I will for sure get another in the future. I was a little worried about the molded plastic sheath compared to the kydex, but it was surprising well made. I may make a kydex sheath of my own for fun but I really do not feel like it is necessary. I have medium sized fingers but wide hands and the handle fits perfectly.
