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.

Excellent product!!
Great EDC knife. I shopped around for a while looking for a rugged versatile EDC that I could trust, and one that would be easily concealed as well as very sharp with good blade material. I use this blade for EVERYTHING! Uses range from opening boxes, light to medium utility, cutting zip cords, rope, even light prying to occasionally food preparation as well as self-defense. I like the option of a sharpened back blade, as well as a partially serrated main blade. Nice as I use the back blade for cutting duct tape, cord and opening boxes, keeping the main blade and serrated for other uses! Shaving sharp on arrival, super impressed with the versatility of the sheath. The form, fit and finish is exceptional, love this knife. Shipping was quick, very happy with purchase and service.

Great Tactical Knife
Purchased primairly as a tactical knife. The knife is a perfect size for almost anything -camping, cutting chores, etc. Like all Rat (or ESEE ) Knives, it is a great knife for the money. Would make excellent X-mas gifts at this price. Also like the sheath - simple and secure.
