ESEE 5: an extremely robust survival knife

The survival knife for people love tackling the outdoors
The ESEE 5 was designed with a couple of experienced SERE operators working at an American air base. They were looking for a solid survival knife that would enable pilots to survive in the wild after going down with their plane. This knife was the ESEE 5. Constructed according to their specifications to be able to handle absolutely anything.
ESEE 4 vs ESEE 5
In terms of size you could say that the ESEE 5 is simply the big brother of the ESEE 4. That is, however, not really the case. You will hardly spot the differences when you see a picture of both knives, but the ESEE 5 is because of its blade thickness a lot more robust. The difference in weight already gives it away: the ESEE 4 weighs 210 grams, the ESEE 5 weighs 435 grams. A big difference. Bigger than the difference in length. Especially when you consider the fact that the ESEE 5 is even heavier than the ESEE 6, which is a lot longer.
