ESEE Izula II Survival Knife - Choice of Models
The ESEE Izula II is a cracking survival knife, made by ESEE, formally the RAT Cutlery Company, the Izula is a very well designed and constructed knife. It is made in the USA and they extensively test their products in all manor of different environments.
They are the Randall's Adventure & Training (RAT) School of Survival and teach a vast range of subjects in all different Worldwide environments so when these guys design a knife I think they know what they want and need!!
The Izula II is slightly longer than the Izula and it is 6.75" overall with a 2.6" drop point blade. It also comes pre-fitted with Micarta handles
It is forged from one piece 1095 high carbon steel with a textured powder coated finish. It has a skeletonized handle that is fitted with removeable Micarta handles.
The is a black injection moulded sheath with lashing holes and it also includes survival information card.
Blown away by this knife! It fits the hand so naturally and comfortably without finger or grip adjustment! I already own and love the Esee 4 and 5 but this small knife is truly amazing. To call it a 'back-up' knife would be insulting as this is more like a big knife in a small, beautifully designed and highly versatile form. Can't recommend it highly enough! IMHO - the best designed and made knife of this type and size out there, and with a lifetime guarantee as always with Esee!!
I have hundreds of knives but only "a preferred one each size"; the Izula 2 is one of them. I use it every day for everything (also hard tasks -for this reason i glued the handle-); it is a tank. The "1095" is really a great steel (perfectly heat treated by ESEE) with amazing performances (just make a patina on it, re-sharp and go). This is my thinking after 5 months of use; -love it-.
Thank you B.S. Staff for the great service
When I first received this knife I was a bit disappointed as didn't expect it to be so small but once I got to using it I realised how great it is. For its size this knife is unbelievable, sharp straight out of box and and a tuff little blade as are all esee knives can't fault it at all. And thanks to andy for being so helpful when I emailed about my order, great service
