Full description

The ESEE RB3 is a very nice bushcrafting knife from the Camp-Lore series, designed by Rueben Bolieu. This knife is ideal for lighter tasks and fine wood-cutting. The micarta handle lies great in your hand, even when you have larger hands. It offers plenty of grip and helps to use the razor-sharp blade with exceptional precision. This blade is full-tang (which means it runs through the whole handle) and is made of 1095 carbon steel. Unlike many other carbon steel ESEE knives, this does not have a coating but has a stonewashed finish. This gives the steel a cool look, but makes it more susceptible to rust. Drying it thoroughly after use and the occasional drop of oil will work miracles for this knife. ESEE decided not to coat the knife so to allow users to create their own patina on the blade

.

The back of the blade has no finish which makes using a firesteel child's play. This underlines how the design of the knife is focused around use. The blade is sharpened in a traditional scandi-grind. A razor-sharp and thin cut is the result. Because the edge is so thin it cuts like no other. Fine carvings and feather sticking is remarkably easy. However, you do have to be careful with the thin edge. ESEE says the following about this:

This knife has a Scandinavian ground edge making it more fragile than a normal cutting edge. It is designed for carving and general bush craft use. NOT batoning or heavy duty cutting.

The ESEE RB3 comes with a right-handed leather belt sheath. Maximum belt width: 5.8 cm.
