The ESEE 5S 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 ESEE 5 is made of "bomb-proof", 1/4" thick 1095 tool steel with a full tang construction, durable powder coat finish and Micarta handle scales. For emergency situations the ESEE 5 is every ounce of tool you need for survival.

Brand new, direct from ESEE Knives. Made in the USA.

New Version comes with the ESEE Logo on the blade as opposed to the "skull and knife-bones" RAT Logo & no logo on the handles.

Blade: The ESEE 5S is made from solid 1095 High Carbon Tool Steel that has been saber ground to deliver an excellent combination of durability and cutting performance. A small section of serrations on the edge rips through rope and fibrous materials with speed. 1095 is easy to get extremely sharp and is tough as nails but doesn't offer much in the way of corrosion resistance. Thankfully the knife is finished in a durable OD Green Powder Coat that enhances resistance corrosion while reducing the reflectivity of the blade and hiding general wear. Jimping along the spine of the blade provides added traction for both power cuts and detail work.

Handle: The handle of the knife consists of two beefy canvas Micarta scales bolted to the full tang construction with black oxide finished Allen bolts. Micarta offer superior traction even when wet exhibiting outstanding durability. The front scale sports a divot for bow drill fire making. The exposed tang at the pommel has a large hole for lanyard attachment, glass breaker point and serial number.

Sheath: Includes a custom molded Kydex sheath with reversible belt clip and screw-adjustable retention.

1095 High Carbon Tool Steel: Highly popular, simple carbon steel. Used extensively by both production and custom knife makers. Low abrasive wear due to low carbide content but very tough and easy to sharpen. Not corrosion resistant and will rust without proper care.
