Features of the ESEE 5

ESEE 5: blade

The knife stands out with its 6.5-mm thick blade. As a result of this, the ESEE 5 is a very robust and a reliable companion outdoors. The blade is not much bigger than the ESEE 4's, but the ESEE 5 is much heavier with its 435 grams compared to the ESEE 4's 210 grams. Because of this, the knife is especially well suited for heavy-duty chopping tasks on your adventures in the wild!

The blades of ESEE 5 knives are made of 1095-carbon steel. This type of steel is not stainless. Fortunately, the blade is protected by an extremely durable powder coating. The wonderful usage qualities of the steel guarantee a lifetime of fun.

ESEE Model 5: handle

The ergonomics are excellent. The handle is enhanced with a curve for your index finger. The handle is quite large, so this knife is also suitable for large hands. The top of the blade is enhanced with ridges for your thumb. These give you even more control over the knife. The back of the knife has a large hole for a lanyard. The tip functions as a glass breaker.

The handle contains a 'bow drill divot'. You use this bow drill divot to create a fire by quickly turning a wooden stick with the help of a bow on a wooden surface keeping slightly flammable material close. It is the most basic way of making a fire, but it works surprisingly well. In any case, we can confidently say that with the Model 5 you will be ready for anything.

ESEE Model 5 sheaths: choose the one you like best

The sheath is not included. That's because there are many options to choose from. . For the accessories, too, it's important to choose the products that suit your intended use. Of course, the different versions share the quality and multi-functionality of all ESEE Knives products.

ESEE: easy to maintain, sharp and strong

ESEE knives excel at what they were designed to do; help you survive in the jungle. That means these knives are strong, easy to maintain and able to hold an edge. The knife meets the requirements of outdoor enthusiasts thanks to the use of 1095-carbon steel for the blade. This steel is easy to sharpen and maintain, it retains its sharpness for a long time, and it's also incredibly strong and robust. So, if you ever find yourself in the woods, with little to no supplies available, a knife from ESEE can be a lifesaver. The only thing the knife regularly needs is to remove any corrosion that might have formed. However, ESEE has a solution: many models have an extra protection against corrosion thanks to a special powder coating.

ESEE: craftsmanship

The knives by ESEE owe their strong, robust character to ESEE's skilled manufacturing process. Heat treatment is an extremely important step to achieve the final properties of the blade. ESEE knives has truly perfect this process. As a result, you'll have to try very hard if you wanted to break the steel. If you try hard enough, of course any knife can break. ESEE knives are definitely strong enough to handle both heavy-duty use and everyday use.
