ESEE Knives
Since 1997 Randall's Adventure & Training has designed no-nonsense, affordable field knives specifically targeted to military, law enforcement, and the special operations community. Many of our knives now serve in combat zones around the globe. Our knives have a "no questions asked" lifetime warranty. ESEE Knives is also setting the standard for many local, state and federal law enforcement officers when it comes to high performance, compact sheath knives with multiple carry options. The NTOA scored our 3-inch fixed blade a 4.77 out of a possible 5. In addition to our knives, we also offer survival, land navigation, tracking and other training courses along with free survival information. 

These 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. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH.

ESEE-3s are shipped with a sheath instruction sheet (below) and Survival Business Card.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's 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.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material, None
Cons: Weight
excellent feel, easy to put a smooth sharp edge on.
Knife is solid, arrived razor sharp. The sheath is good but not comfortable to wear on your belt. The upgraded sheath that allows the handle top to ride at or below the belt line I think is a good carry option. I'm impressed with it's quality. The handle is great.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
A workhorse
Tough, sharp, durable, well finished "mid-tech" design. For a relatively small fixed blade it is incredibly versatile. Take care of it and it will take care of you.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Impressive fit and finish
After considering some larger and heavier blades, this ESEE-3 turned out to be a great compromise with respect to size vs weight. The molded sheath fits the knife perfectly with no rattle. I choose to use the large Tek-Lok system with this sheath, which attaches with two screws only on this particular sheath. Nevertheless, the sheath is very securely attached with just those two screws. Right out of the box, I was very impressed with the fit and finish of the micarta handle scales, as well as the coated blade. The etching on the blade is clean and clear. The knife came from the factory extremely sharp, slicing paper effortlessly. Esee is quite transparent about the need to maintain the blade with a rust inhibitor. But, I feel that this small bit of maintenance is far out weighed by all of this knife's strengths. Great combination of features for a knife in this size range.
