The ESEE Model 3 is a solid survival knife with a blade made from 1095 carbon steel. The extremely sustainable powder coating on the blade protects it from the increased corrosion sensitivity of the carbon steel. The wonderful usage qualities of the steel guarantee a lifetime of pleasure. The full tang blade is enhanced with a micarta handle. The handle feels slightly coarse which is great for grip and comfort. The ESEE 3 has reasonably modest dimensions so that it won't look too 'threatening'. With this size it can easily be used as an EDC knife. This is the 3S version, which means that a part of the edge is serrated.
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.
The knife comes with a flexible sheath. The knife perfectly fits inside the zytel sheath which can be mounted to your liking on the belt clip.
