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 Micarta 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.

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

Bulletproof knife
If I had to bug out and grab one item it would be this knife. It can easily work through fire wood, slice rope, or field dress game. If it’s your only tool in the woods or the main knife in your set, you can’t go wrong. One of my favorite knives in my set.

This Thing is a Monster
The ESEE-5 is a beast. It's the knife you use if you need a knife to cut up other knives. The only caveats I would give is that it is coated 1095 steel, so you have to keep the blade oiled or it will rust and you can't use the back edge for striking ferro. Keep in mind that this is a 1/4" thick hard-use knife; it isn't a lightweight. That being said, you will not find a tougher knife on the market- I don't hesitate to use this knife for batoning, or gripping near the bottom to cut down saplings with it, like a small machete. I would agree with another reviewer that you may want to carry this along with another smaller knife, to round out your uses. I like small (<3") S30V blades for this function.

Goodness Gracious
The website was easy to navigate and when I asked if they could send stickers with my purchase because I didn't see any on there to buy, they sent me a couple! This is the most bada** knife I've ever owned. It's a beefy, well constructed knife that I would trust with my life in an apocalypse. I would recommend it to anyone, including girl-scouts.
