ESEE Knives
 
The ESEE-5 is shipped with a black Kydex sheath and a Clip Plate (allows for belt carry by attaching directly to the Kydex sheath. Includes mounting hardware.)

Feedback from a SERE instructor after testing a production model of the ESEE-5 (taken from ESEE Knives's website):

Just got back and I am impressed. The knife is everything that we're looking for. Tough, durable, practical, affordable, and useful. I can't tell you how many fires that I started with the help of the ESEE-5 and it was a great trip to try out a knife. The weather was unseasonably cold, mostly in the teens but sometimes in the negatives. My friend and I were starting a fire for some cold students and he was bashing his (manufacturer's name removed) through some sections of a downed tree it broke right at the handle, like most bolt knives and (manufacturer's name removed) seem to do. I don't know if it was the cold weather, the perfect angle, or something else but it was a brand new (manufacturer's name removed) and it broke right in half. At the same time I was beating the daylights out of the ESEE-5 hoping to bend, break, or at the very least damage the paint job. I failed to do any of these things and my friend became more and more interested in the ESEE-5 as I found more and more things that I like about it. I'll get some pictures and a few videos this next trip and send them to you ASAP. Thanks again for the great knife!

("Bolt" Knives are knives built with reduced tangs to accommodate handles. Usually these knives have a pommel cap that is threaded or riveted in place. These reduced tang knives will not accept a lot of prying. Examples of this are standard issue pilot's survival knives.)

Note: Our 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.

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

Top Bushcraft Knife
If you want to have one knife with you to cover a maximum amount of tasks, this might be the knife for you. Fits in the hand like a glove, well balanced and heavy. A good chopper. Nice thick full tang. Small enough for fine tasks and carving. You could even field dress a Deer with it if pressed. Quality fit and finish and a extremely tough finish coating. Nice Sheath. Buy It!

Best knife purchase yet
I have been looking at this knife for quite sometime. I absolutely love the olive on the blade and the micarta handles are superior quality. I am an avid camper/hiker and use my blades harshly, and this blade has surpassed any expectations I had. The .25" blade gives me the confidence that it can withstand anything and it's paired with a great kydex sheath. The knife may be a bit on the heavier side for minimalists, but it's worth the extra weight, trust me.

SHTF knife
I finally bought an ESEE knife and im glad I did. My first words after handling it was ,this knife is built like a small tank.Its built for the long haul. The knife weighs a full pound but I believe every ounce of its weight is worth carrying. I own a lot of knives ,most are survival types. If I had to pick one knife to carry that would have to last me the rest of my life in a SHTF survival scenario, this is the knife I would choose without a doubt with no hesitation. Thanks again knife center for the excellent service.
