The locals in Peru call the meanest, nastiest ant of the jungle by the name "Isula". We know it as the Bullet Ant. The Bullet Ant is known to be independent, tough, light on its feet, and a real aggressive survivor - the IZULA knife is built the same way. This knife is designed to be the perfect lightweight survival kit or concealed carry knife (or UNconcealed if you prefer). It comes in two sizes, the Izula, and the Izula II with a longer handle and micarta scales. Both have the same blade, so sheaths for one will match the other. The Izula might just be the smallest survival fixed blade out there. It weighs next to nothing, so why not throw one in your pack? Two is one, one is none!

I carry this knife with me pretty much everywhere I legally can. It is a great work horse and the light weight nature doesn't fatigue you when you're having to put in a lot of effort. Sheath is great as well. Secures the knife perfectly. Highly recommend.
I bought this knife with the intentions of use for camping, hiking, and wilderness. I don’t do that often so threw it into one of my bugout bags because it’s so damn lightweight. And can take abuse!
I've had this knife for about three years. It was a gift from my father in law and it was the thing I didn't know I needed. I added the tan scales and it's my goto whenever I'm hiking or going outdoors. It's a great size and I like the sheath, it holds it quite well. It's just overall a great functional, sturdy knife.
I picked this Izula up because I wanted an affordable small fixed blade knife which could take some outdoor abuse if I needed and serve as a quickly accessible “get off me” blade. This little guy fits the bill perfectly. Super sharp out of the box and tough as nails. ESEEs have a great warranty behind them. These will need a little oil to keep the blade from forming rust. The handle is a bit short, filling 3/4 of my palm. Get the Izula II if you want that extra handle length. I’d recommend getting a set of handle scales unless you want to use it as a neck knife.
