Full description

The ESEE JG5 is a remarkable outdoor knife, designed by James Gibson. For this knife he became inspired by the famous Nessmuk knife designed by outdoor writer George Washington Sears. A pioneer when it comes to ultra-light camping and hiking. Under the pseudonym Nessmuk he wrote stories and guides about canoe trips and other (for those days) innovative trips at the end of the nineteenth century. He used a specific type of knife: the Nessmuk. This ESEE Jg5 is the 21st century incarnation of it.

The ESEE JG5 is of course also made from 1095 carbon steel. The knife has been enhanced with a dark stonewashed finish. Also called blackwash. As a result traces of use will hardly be visible. The handle is made from micarta. This is a composite material of linen and synthetic resin. Incredibly strong, light-weight and feels amazing in hand. Because of the coarse cut-outs in the handle this knife feels amazing in hand.

The spine of the blade was sharpened at a right angle. As such using a firesteel is a piece of cake. The sparks will fly! The ergonomics are remarkably good. The knife fits perfectly inside your hand, even if you have relatively large hands. The grind of the blade makes it thin enough to also come in handy when preparing food. At the same time the large belly on the edge is perfect for gutting game.

You can carry the ESEE with you in the right-handed leather sheath.

A great take on the Nessmuk design which makes for an outstanding all rounder. Don't be put off by the scales, they are supremely comfortable. Esee quality, tried and tested style for a modern bushcraft knife.
