The ESEE Candiru is one of the smallest fixed blade knives from ESEE designed as a compact yet robust neck knife for every day carry. The full tang construction is made of 1095 High Carbon Tool Steel with skeletonized handles for a compact and lightweight utility blade that has been finished in a vibrant Purple Powder Coating for enhanced corrosion resistance. Coming in right at 2 ounces the Candiru is a rock solid cutting tool that won't weight you down.

Brand new direct from ESEE Knives & Proudly Made in the USA.

New Version comes with the ESEE Logo as opposed to the "skull and knife-bones" RAT Logo.

The Blade: The Candiru is made from solid 1095 High Carbon Tool Steel that has been saber ground to provide plenty of strength while delivering the cutting performance you need in this compact tool. The knife is finished in a durable Purple Powder Coat that enhances resistance corrosion while reducing the reflectivity of the blade and hiding general wear. The color also stands out in wilderness environments making it easier to find if you drop it in the woods.

The Handle: The handle is an extension of the full tang construction on this fixed blade. The skeletonized tang reduces weight and gives added traction with or without a paracord wrap. The three finger grip provides a solid and secure grip while maintaining a minimal footprint.
