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-5 was designed by military SERE instructors as a hard-use downed pilot’s survival knife. With its 0.25" blade thickness, it's a big fixed blade that's tough, durable and practical. 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 handles have orange G10 scales that are durable and water resistant. The knife also features spine jimping, full tang construction, lanyard hole, and a glass breaker. The knife comes with a Kydex sheath, clip plate, paracord lanyard, and cord lock.

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.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

Pros: Overall Quality
Cons: None
Heavy blade
You probably have many knives if you are interested in this one. Some seem too nice to work them. I do a lot of outdoor forestry - hacking through grapevines that chock my beloved oak trees; battoning the irregularities off a new walking stick, or making kindling. I needed a heavy knife for these tasks, but that could also do fine cutting and not have a leather sheath when the weather is bad. This fits my needs without being a machete. I can wear it on my belt and still sit down in the gator or in my truck. It hasn't chipped yet and the coating seems pretty durable. This is one of my knives to use enough to get dirty. The steel is excellent. People that over-research a steel often don't work their knives. Personally, I find a harder (more expensive) steel more difficult to sharpen.

Cons: None
Perfect product
This in my opinion is the best camping knife I've ever had. Sheath is perfectly made, fits snugly with no rattling. Very sharp and is indestructible. I regret all the knives I went through to find this one.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Weight, Handle Material, Finish
I bought this knife as a gift for my son. You can tell the quality just by picking up the knife. Heavy duty for sure! American made with lifetime warranty should serve my son well in his lifetime of outdoor adventures. After seeing and holding the knife I am a bit jealous and will be ordering one for myself.
