The ESEE-5 is shipped with a black Kydex sheath and a Clip Plate (allows for belt carry by attaching directly to the Kydex sheath. Includes mounting hardware.)

Feedback from a SERE instructor after testing a production model of the ESEE-5 (taken from ESEE Knives's website):

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.)

Note: Our 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.

Great knife, new sheath cures all
Tested this knife all day in the fields with the new Gods Speed Dangler sheath, fixed the carry problem completely. The knife is wonderful to carry this way, the weight just went away, a very useful robust knife if you use them daily as we do here. Does not get hung up in and out of vehicles, especially the tractors, that was a big problem, gone away completely. Great knife, even better and more rounded out with the GS up graded dangler sheath, a great combo. Acid
