RCBRKR1OD: Olive Drab Zancudo Frame Lock Folder
BRK Designed by ESEE

Zancudo is Spanish for Mosquito but besides its compacts size, we cannot think of another similarity between this knife and the buzzing pest. The Zancudo was designed by the survival experts over at ESEE Knives, Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, and was produced by Blue Ridge Knives. It's an amazingly slim, well-built folder that you won't have a problem carrying and using every day. The frame lock mechanism and FRN handle, with the solid, full-length steel liners, provide serious strength to this small folder. The pocket clip is reversible but only set up for right-hand carry and the knife weighs in at exactly three ounces. It's a folder we're very excited about here at the KnifeCenter because it gets almost everything right in a folding knife at a price point you're sure to be pleased with.

Great Pocket Knife!
So I've had this knife on me everyday for the past two months. Now, I'm not going to tell you that I put it through the ringer by trying to baton, pry, and impale pieces of glass or metal...that's just not what this blade is made for. This is however designed to be a GREAT all around e.d.c blade. I've opened boxes, cut fruit, para-cord, and many other items that needed a nice clean cut. All in all, this is a great all around blade for a REALLY decent price. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

So much potential
So much potential, I am looking forward to more from Esee folders. This comes close to a ZT, the frame lock is very substantial and is skelatonized where one entire side is the liner lock and hand grip. Clip is great and the knife is well made and tight. The action is a lot of fun, and the best part of this knife is a real nice looking stonewash steel matching the blade and steel part of handle. Kind of gives it a used look and is great with the OD green. I bought this a week ago from KC and haven't put it down. I prefer the size much better then the ZT knives, this knife is very unassuming for every day carry and general knife stuff. I sharpened the blade and dry shaved my arm nicely and have two cuts on my hand from playing so much, you know how it goes when you get a new toy. They name this after a mosquito and I am proof it has a stinger, blade gets very sharp. Nice finger indent as well, keeps you hand off the blade. However, I am a little disappointed in how thin the blade is and the OD handle material is not grabby at all, I'm thinking about rubbing some pine tar on it. If they make 100% stainless option I would go for that in a heart beat. I also hope they make 100% serrated someday. I don't see this as an every day user, but it comes soo close. If they just beef up the blade and get a better option for handle material. the other cons would be the liner lock is a little to far down so collapsing the blade can chip your finger nail, there is no reason for this other then not enough thought put into that, I'm sure future models with add this feature. The thumb button is a little small and just a little hard to get a perfect flip every time, they can fix that in future models as well. This is a fun knife full of potential, but keep in mind it is 30 bucks compared to 200 you will be paying for a ZT or 60 for a delica 4. I think I'd go to a Delica for everyday carry, but I have to tell you this Esee is an impressive knife and I'm real glad I bought the stonewash blade. This knife is on the verge of being in the class of super knives. Bigger thicker blade with a thumb push with a metal frame and 100% serrated option and this would be the next great super knife that everybody is talking about.
