The ESEE Model 6 is a large survival knife with a blade made from 1095 carbon steel. Within the ESEE range this is one of the largest survival knives with which you can also carry out 'normal' tasks. With its 16.5 cm blade you can also use it for light chopping tasks.
The blade is made from 1095-carbon steel. The most important quality of this type of steel is its toughness. It is almost unbreakable. Another advantage is that 1095 carbon steel is easy to sharpen. Even when out in the field, with limited means, you can still easily sharpen your knife. The only thing you need to take into account is the corrosion resistance: 1095 is not stainless. Fortunately ESEE enhanced it with a thick Traction Coating.
The full tang blade is enhanced with a G10 handle. A 3D micarta handle. This was an answer to questions of enthusiasts. The traditional ESEE scales are flat and angular. These 3D scales are a lot more ergonomic. Because of the grooves you still have a lot of grip over the knife. With these scales the ESEE 6 has become a lot more versatile, even coming close to the traditional bushcraft knives.
The knife comes with a top-quality kydex sheath. You can attach it any way you like on the included clip plate with steel belt clip. Because of the many mounting eyes you can also use other clips. Think of Tek-Loks or MOLLE clips (not included).
The great thing about the 3D scales is these versions fit in the same sheaths as the normal versions. Need an additional or replacement sheath? No worries, you can simply choose the normal version!
