ESEE Knives
ESEE Kandiru knife with black blade, skeletonized handle and Cordura sheath. Optional bolt-on handle scales sold separately.

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 on the blade.

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.

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Not even sharpened
When I buy a knife, even a very small one, I expect it to be at least well sharpened, out of the box. This was not the case with the Candiru. It isn't even able to cut a thin rope. I had to rub the blade against it several times. It took just one try to my Opinel n. 6 to cut it, just like that.

Fantastic utility blade
I'm a teacher at a local survival skills school here in Idaho. We teach law enforcement training and wilderness survival classes. I bought this knife to carry along with a larger fixed blade that I keep on my belt and it has performed admirably. The 1095 steel takes a razor edge with little work and holds it well, some people claim the edge retention is poor but with the heat treatment this has its works great. For everything from shaving sticks for fire tender to gutting grouse up in the high mountains this knife holds its own, and I know I'll be carrying it for a long time. Nice work again ESEE.

Fun every day knife
I normally like fixed knives better than folders but a person can't normally walk around with a fixed blade without making the general public feel uncomfortable like it's something more than just a tool. This guy fits nicely in your pocket. I just shove the whole sheath into my pocket and it doesn't seem weird. I know some people dumped on the sheath but I don't think it's bad. I also bought the grey handles with the black blade. Basically it makes for a good look and feel without drawing too much "look at me" attention in the public. When needed it's easy to access. It fits good in the hand and it can be very sharp. Yes it is small but it's basically a fixed blade version of a EDC folder. It's tough and just simple fun. Not my only knife but I enjoy switching my EDC up with this guy from time to time for all of those random moments in life.
