ESEE Knives ESEE-PINCH James Gibson Pinch Fixed Neck Knife 1.3" 1095 Black Oxide Stonewashed Blade, Rare Earth Magnet Molded Sheath
RCPINCH: ESEE-PINCH James Gibson Pinch
The Gibson Pinch is one if not the most anticipated offering ever to come from ESEE Knives because it's a design that just works. Custom knifemaker James Gibson always has a knife dangling around his neck, especially out in the bush, to accompany his working fixed blade. However, around a campsite you'll be surprised how often you lend a knife out, leaving you without a cutting edge. Enter the Pinch backup neck knife to save the day.
This svelte skeletonized design measures under 3.5" overall, yet it packs a 1.3" Wharncliffe cutting edge for a surprising amount of cutting power. It's made of 1095 high carbon steel with a black oxide stonewashed finish that is subtle and hard-wearing. The best part of the knife, by far, is the "Earth Magnet" sheath. It uses a rare earth magnet to provide the retention which enables the knife to easily fit and stay positioned in the sheath with great retention yet it is still easy to get to and draw in a pinch. We love the ergonomics and ease of use of this design, it's no wonder so many were eagerly awaiting its arrival.

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.
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.
