The ESEE 5 with Orange powder coat blade and OD Green canvas micarta scales fixed blade was designed by an Air Force SERE Instructor with the goal of being one of the best knives for aircraft survival, escape and evasion. The 5 has many of the great features such as the thick full tang 1095 tool steel blade. The plain edge blade has been sabre ground and then received an orange traction coating. Heavy jimping along the spine of the blade where the thumb rests helps to provide a better grip for more detailed jobs. Attached with allen screws to the beefy tang are OD green canvas micarta handle scales. A bow drill divot on the front of the micarta handle is incredibly useful for lighting fires. The pommel comes to a point that is capable of breaking glass. Each knife has been individually serialized on the pommel. The knife snaps snugly into a black kydex sheath and includes a clip plate. A survival business card and instruction sheet has been packaged with the knife and helps to explain the many carry options of the knife.
