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. 

This is the model that started it all. After designing the RAT-3 for Ontario Knife Company, it was the first design they brought over when ESEE Knives (Formerly RAT Cutlery) was formed. 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-3 is still a favorite amongst law enforcement and military teams due to its light weight, thin profile and various sheath options.

ESEE-3s are shipped with a sheath instruction sheet (below) and Survival Business Card.

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.
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.

Pros: Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
Thank You Knifecenter for Another Successful International Shipment
Firstly a round of applause for the Knifecenter Staff for another successful international shipment. The blade arrived with a strong smell of anti rust coating. The blade sharpness is not as sharp as a Spyderco out of the box, a little run on stone may help. The sheath system may be a bit overrated. Molle Lock fitting holes not accurately positioned. Not saying its a bad product, I really love the design. I will add further comments after I abuse it on the field.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
I have this knife and love it. The fit and finish is outstanding! Very Sharp from the factory and the sheath offers a lot of versatility. The warranty? Unbeatable. I use this knife for camping and as an E.D.C. (though usually in my bag)(check your local laws) and for food prep. The Glass breaker pommel IS worth having in an emergency! This knife is a great on person/in car/BOB/emergency extraction tool to have, light, compact, well balanced, versatile and tough, just know that as with all things it has limits. I like the serrations and there easy enough to sharpen but I have experienced no real advantage in having them, (although I haven't really had an opportunity to get out and really beat on the knife). This is the ONLY knife I even touch when camping and that's not on purpose. This knife is WELL worth the cost. I believe you will not be disappointed.
