The ESEE Model 4 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 G10 handle. The handle feels slightly coarse which is great for grip and comfort. The ESEE 4 is large enough to give your hands enough room without it becoming a colossal knife.
The handle is enhanced with a curve for your index finger. This knife feels so amazing in hand it makes you wonder why other knives sometimes need an entire row of curves. The heel of the blade also has one of these curves. If you put your index finger in that curve you can place your thumb on the blade. The ridges on top are in just the right place for your thumb. As a result you will have a lot of control over the knife which is great, for instance, when preparing food.
The knife comes with a flexible sheath. The knife perfectly fits inside the zytel holder which can be mounted as desired on the included MOLLE-compatible mounting system or the plate with the steel belt clip. You can attach it on both sides so the whole can be made to size.
