1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Fit the spacer
I fit the micarta handle spacer, worked out very nicely, i used a belt sander, you could do it by hand but it will take some fiddling. If you dont mind doing the fillting this is a very nice knife in many ways, you do need the micarta scales or the G10, not enough to hold on to otherwise. Consider the D2 blade and fix it up the same, what a great value. Stay sharp, Acid

Cons: Handle Material, None
Great knife, optional scales do not fit, missed the true value mark
Potentially the greatest value in it s class, bar none, the fact that the optional ESSEE micarta scales do not fit, not even close craters the review completely. sad but true. They did not deisign the sheath to allow for the Izula 2 scales, only the little dinky standard partial Izula scales, and they do not fit as stated. I dont blame ESSEE for not allowing the bigger Izula 2 scales as would make sense, it would easily over take the value of the Izula 2 with scales, which trumps this colaborative nife as is. Rhyms with abortive, also which makes senss in this case. Best, Acid

Kadar/ ESEE Eskabar
This knife is excellent! I was using a folder as my edc, but wanted to switch to a fixed blade. I looked at the ESEE Izula, Izula 2, and the becker necker bk11. I finally found this one, and it is perfect. I did buy the handle slabs for it, because I have large hands, but I am very pleased with every inch of this blade. I am proud to own it, and you will not regret buying one.
