ESEE Knives ESEE-PR4-BO Patrick Rollins Camp-Lore PR4 Fixed 4.19" 1095 Black Stonewashed Plain Blade, Micarta Handles, Leather Sheath
RCPR4BO: ESEE-PR4-BO Patrick Rollins Camp-Lore PR4
The Camp-Lore Series was developed to answer the demand for traditional, basic, bushcraft knives. The designers of this knife series come from unique backgrounds and experiences, with each considered to be one of the best in their field. All of the Camp-Lore knives are simple, traditional, fixed blade designs that have been field-proven for years. Keeping with that simplistic approach, ESEE builds the Camp-Lore line in the USA utilizing 1095 carbon steel blades and removable Micarta handles. Each Camp-Lore knife comes with a USA made traditional pouch sheath using leather supplied by one of the oldest tanneries in North America.
When it comes to wilderness chores, sometimes simple and straightforward is the best approach. The ESEE Camp-Lore PR4 is Patrick Rollins' take on Horace Kephart's classic design. The original prototype was made by James Gibson and tested extensively by Patrick during survival classes, off-trail backpacking, hiking, and camping. The Rowen built production PR4 features a 4.19" blade with a 4.75" handle, 0.125" thick 1095 high carbon steel blade, 90-degree spine for striking a Ferro rod and a leather drop sheath. It may not be pretty but it is designed to work, like all the other ESEE Knives.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
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.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
