About ESEE Knives

Randall's Adventure & Training® has been in business since 1997, training military, law enforcement, and civilians in the art of jungle survival. During our survival training ventures, we recognized the need for a better knife for our jungle school. Machete's were too thin and flexible and sheath knives were too small and lacked cutting efficiency. Our problem was solved when we designed the RTAK, a large sheath knife that offered the cutting efficiency of a machete with the hard work features of a sheath knife. We commissioned Newt Livesay of Wicked Knife Co. to build the first models of this knife. To our surprise, the RTAK became very popular and we soon had more orders than Newt had shop time.

In 2002 Randall's Adventure & Training (RAT) licensed Ontario Knife Co to build the RTAK on a 5-year contract term. During that time frame, Randall's Adventure & Training designed additional knives that were also built by Ontario, and secured government NSN numbers on two of the designs.   

After our Ontario contract ended in April, 2007, Randall's Adventure & Training decided to produce a higher quality line of knives outside of the mass production capabilities of Ontario. The new ESEE Line (Formerly RAT Cutlery) is considered "mid-tech" in the sense of quality and manufacturing procedures. This means you will notice upgrades to sheathing, fit, finish and detail on ESEE knives. Most important, ESEE is now in a position to respond quickly to new product development and upgrades to existing lines. All of our designs fit the bill of desirable field cutlery when it comes to toughness, comfort, and cutting efficiency.

Throughout our time in the cutlery industry, our philosophy has always been geared towards customer service and having our product perform to the user's expectations. Whether you're a one-time knife buyer or a purchasing manager for a large distributor, we want EVERY customer to have a satisfying experience - all the way from the initial order to the use of our knives. If you experience any problems, we want to know about it. We also appreciate any positive feedback you may have to offer. Feel free to contact us about any issue, negative or positive.

Randall's Adventure & Training® Knife Design History

Randall's Adventure & Training ® has been designing, marketing and selling survival and military styled knives since 1997. One of their first designs was the RTAK which was built for them by Newt Livesay's Wicked Knife Company long before Ontario Knife Company produced the design. In fact, Ontario Knife Company used a Newt Livesay knife to build the first Ontario prototype. Read about the RTAK here: Page 1 and page 2. We also produced and sold the RAT skinning / survival knife made by John Greco (read TK article), and the RAT Laser Strike knife made by TOPS (Photo left of US Army SERE class using the Laser Strike knife). The RAT Laser Strike was the cover story of the September 2001 issue of Tactical Knives magazine. You can also read about the initial design phases and see a prototype  of the RAT Laser Strike project in the October 2000 issue of American Survival Guide magazine. 

Randall's Adventure & Training designed the following knives: RAT skinner, RAT Laser Strike, RTAK, RTAK II, TAK, RAT-7, RAT-5, RAT-3, Model 1 (Folder), RC-3, RC-4, RC-5, RC-6, Izula, Junglas, Lite Machete and the sheath systems for the RC-3, RC-4 and RC-6.
