The ESEE-5 is a brilliant knife for your survival kit and has the bombproof build quality that we really like. This bad boy is designed to take some serious abuse and is packed with features. If you could handle this you would buy it, instantly, as you will know that is one serious piece of kit designed for serious use. It is designed by US Air Force SERE instructors and should be what every survival knife aspires to.
It is a great size and is just the sort of product you would happily add to any Survival Kit or Go Bag and similarly use as a general propose knife for camp duties and general use. This really conforms to our ideal that if a knife is brilliant for one use you can be 99.9% sure it is going to be brilliant at just about anything you set it to.

ESEE (Randall's Adventure & Training - RAT) have been in the business of training the Military, Law Enforcement and Civilians in Survival for many years now and when there was nothing on the market that really fulfilled their requirements the natural progression is to design your own. This they did and they have come out with what is what we believe to be the best range of Survival knives on the market today.
Please bear in mind that ESEE knives are made from Carbon Steel which is the perfect balance for edge holding and toughness but does need a little maintaining, we recommend simply cleaning it after use and giving it a wipe with our V80 VCI Inhibitor Cloth (available in Store) to keep your knife in tip top conditions.

What a bruiser! This knife feels like you could pry off a tank track. Definitely the strongest knife i've ever seen.
