The ESEE Model 6 is one of the most popular survival knives. This ESEE Model 6 HM is a modified version of that classic. The blade is the same as the regular ESEE 6, but the handle has changed considerably .At the request of bush crafters and hunters, the grip was made rounder. The finger groove also disappeared. As such the knife is great for detailed tasks.
The blade of the ESEE 6HM is made from 1095 carbon steel. A type of steel that 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 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 6 is large enough to give your hands enough room without it becoming a colossal knife.
The ESEE Model 6HM includes a black leather sheath.

Typical Esse quality. Shaving sharp, the handle modification lends the Esse 6 to more of a bushcraft knife than its predecessor. Works fantastically well in the woods.
