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. 

The Candiru is the most compact knife that ESEE offers yet it is still a ferocious cutter. It, like the Izula, is designed for neck carry or to be a secondary backup knife should the need arise. 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.

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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Efficient little cutter.
These knives have an excellent heat-treatment as well as fit and finish. This knife has proven, to me, to be a tough little slicer and does so efficiently. Wether paracord wrap or micarta, these little knives handle well.

Super knife
I dived into the Pacific last week and caught a sperm whale with my Candiru. Managed to drag it to shore, and with my Candiru, i sliced it open. The knife sliced through the belly fat and abdomen with the greatest ease. The Candiru was also perfect for carving out figurines from the whales teeth which I sold to tourists. Highly recommend this knife.

Tiny tiny tiny
Fits in a pocket, fits in your hand, twice the knife of the similar sized Becker remora much more comfy handle, and a much beefier a blade, I haven't had a chance to use it a lot, but it can take some abuse, it you like me to baton 2" logs this is the blade for you! Sheath leaves a little to be desired
