The ESEE Model 4 is a solid survival knife with a blade made from 440 carbon steel. The 440C-steel blade is stainless and so easy to maintain. The wonderful usage qualities of the steel guarantee a lifetime of pleasure. The blade has a stonewash finish. Compared to the usual black powder coating, the stonewash coating has a better effect on the cutting properties of the knife. The full tang blade is enhanced with a micarta handle. The handle feels slightly coarse which is great for grip and comfort. The ESEE 4 is large enough to give your hands enough room without it becoming a colossal knife.
The handle is enhanced with a curve for your index finger. This knife feels so amazing in hand it makes you wonder why other knives sometimes need an entire row of curves. The heel of the blade also has one of these curves. If you put your index finger in that curve you can place your thumb on the blade. The ridges on top are in just the right place for your thumb. As a result you will have a lot of control over the knife which is great, for instance, when preparing food.You can find an extensive expert review
