The blade of the Izula is made of 1095 carbon steel. This is a very strong type of steel, which is easy to sharpen. This steel is a bit more sensitive to rust, but in practice this will not really bother you, as the blade is finished with a high quality powder coating. It remains wise to keep this knife dry and possibly oil it a bit at times.
The included plastic sheath, as all ESEE Knives sheaths, is fantastically designed. The knife is well clamped and will not spontaneously fall out.

An iconic barebone neck knife - usable size for small bushcraft work and general EDC usage. Tried the paracord handle but in the end, reverted back to the naked handle as I prefer the feel of the grip. It goes without saying that you do need to take care of the edge after use to prevent rusting.
