ESEE Knives 5SKOOD Model 5 OD Green 1095HC ComboEdge Blade, Gray Micarta Handles, Knife Only-No Sheath. Feedback from a SERE instructor after testing an ESEE-5: Just got back and I am impressed. The knife is everything that we're looking for. Tough, durable, practical, affordable, and useful. I can't tell you how many fires that I started with the help of the ESEE-5 and it was a great trip to try out a knife. The weather was unseasonably cold, mostly in the teens but sometimes in the negatives. My friend and I were starting a fire for some cold students and he was bashing his (manufacturer's name removed) through some sections of a downed tree it broke right at the handle, like most bolt knives and (manufacturer's name removed) seem to do. I don't know if it was the cold weather, the perfect angle, or something else but it was a brand new (manufacturer's name removed) and it broke right in half. At the same time I was beating the daylights out of the ESEE-5 hoping to bend, break, or at the very least damage the paint job. I failed to do any of these things and my friend became more and more interested in the ESEE-5 as I found more and more things that I like about it. I'll get some pictures and a few videos this next trip and send them to you ASAP. Thanks again for the great knife!

("Bolt" Knives are knives built with reduced tangs to accommodate handles. Usually these knives have a pommel cap that is threaded or riveted in place. These reduced tang knives will not accept a lot of prying. Examples of this are standard issue pilot's survival knives.)

ESEE knives are made from high carbon 1095 steel. And while 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for, especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user's responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. ESEE Knives suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH.

ESEE knives. What else can I say. Along with the ESEE 5 I also have the ESEE Junglas. For backcountry hikes and wilderness survival both of these knives are great. The 5 is extremely stout far more than many other knives I have tested and still very sharp. This knife handles all camp chores with ease, clears branches, and can still be used to cut your steak at dinner.

One of my favorite knives in my collection. If I had to bug out and grab one item it would be this knife. It can easily work through fire wood, slice rope, or field dress game. You simply you cannot go wrong.

This is a thick, brute monster of a knife that can do everything. It can be used quite well for tactical purposes, as well as field and survival applications. This is quite possibly the best all around all purpose "Real Deal" knife. Spend the extra on this thing, as it will last you years and years.

Another AMAZING knife by ESEE! The 5 is a beast and you'll know it the first time you hold it in your hand. The 5 right now is my primary hiking blade, rides tip-up on my pack shoulder strap and is there ready and waiting to be used and abused. I seriously have not had such a beast of a blade before as my hiking knife and it does all I ask and then some. Like all the ESEE knives your gonna love this blade.
