The Esee Izula’s are named after an aggressive ant from the Peruvian jungle. It symbolizes the knife should not be underestimated because of its size! The Izula is a very versatile fixed knife. It can easily be stowed in a bag or can be worn like a necking knife. Despite its size it provides really good grip. The knife has a hole on the back which gives extra grip when you put your pinky through it. Of course you can also make a handle out of paracord to create better grip. ESEE also makes real grip parts should you like that better. Then the knife obviously becomes a bit bigger.
The blade is made out of 1095 carbon steel which ESEE uses a lot. It has sublime cutting properties and can be sharpened easily. Esee has added a black powder coating to the carbon steel blade which helps a lot against corrosion. We do advise to store the knife dry and grease/oil it before putting it away. Just to be sure!
The Izula comes with a zytel sheath which really holds the knife tightly. The sheath comes with a sturdy steel clip and allows you to attach it to your belt.

This is a really great little knife which will be accompanying me on many a bushcraft trip. It was better than I expected from the reviews I've seen, The handle is great for my rather large hand and the blade is razor-sharp, in fact I cut myself slightly testing the edge! Fits securely into the sheath too.
