A cool little tool!
Dave V.
I already own the ESEE 4, 6, and my wife has the Izula 2....(So, obviously I have a thing for ESEE knives). The Candiru arrived tonight, along with the micarta scales. I can't put this little guy down! GREAT edc/work knife! It's size makes it a star for easy carry/work. One thing I have noticed about ESEE knives, they DO come sharp, but a little time with a Spyderco sharpmaker, fresh out of the bag, makes these knives RAZOR sharp! GREAT little camping/utility/all around small carry blade!
