ESEE 3: the compact survival knife, made for everyday life
The ESEE 3 is an incredibly decent survival knife. In terms of size it is one of the smaller ESEE survival knives. However, in most cases the 9 cm blade the ESEE 3 offers will be enough. The main advantage is that, as a result, it is also easier to take with you and lighter in terms of weight. As a result the ESEE 3 has been popular amongst hikers for years. But also amongst professional users who don’t want to carry too much weight the ESEE 3 is very popular.
The numerous options for the ESEE 3
The ESEE Model 3 can be carried in many different ways. There are various colours of sheaths and you can also order a belt clip or MOLLE-back. ESEE delivers all knives individually, without sheath, to make sure you can comprise a set yourself. There are, of course, also sets available in a standard configuration as set by ESEE.
Proven materials for a proven survival knife
The ESEE 3 is made from 1095 carbon steel. Not stainless, but it can handle quite a lot. Perhaps just as important: 1095 is easy to sharpen. As such you will be able to end up with a razor-sharp knife in the field by only using limited means. ESEE has chosen micarta or G10 for the handles. Both are incredibly stable and feel great in hand. Another advantage of Micarta is that it slightly expands in wet circumstances to give you even more grip.
