The ESEE Model 6 is a solid survival knife with a blade made from 1095 carbon steel. The extremely sustainable powder coating on the blade protects it from the increased corrosion sensitivity of the carbon steel. The wonderful usage qualities of the steel guarantee a lifetime of pleasure. The full tang blade is enhanced with a micarta handle. The handle feels slightly coarse which is great for grip and comfort. The ESEE Model 6 is a large and solid knife that can withstand extremely heavy use. The model 6 weighs 335 grams. That is quite heavy for a knife. But if that is not an objection then you have a very solid knife.
The ergonomics are excellent. The handle is enhanced with a curve for your index finger. The blade length is very specious. Also suitable for large hands. If you place your index finger in the curve at the base of the blade, your thumb will automatically fall on the ridges that are added to the top of the blade. As such you can control the knife a little better. The back of the knife has a large hole for a lanyard. The back of the blade runs throughout the handle. Although it is not a real glass breaker, given the heavy version, this knife can break through a thick layer of glass.
This ESEE 6 includes a nice Zytel sheath, with belt clip. You can assemble this yourself in a way that suits you best.
