The ESEE 4 is a dyed-in-the-wool survival knife. In fact, it might be the bar by which all survival knives are judged. Combining a stout blade stock and a tall flat grind, the knife can bust through your toughest batonning jobs and still slice a tomato without any trouble. As tough as it is, it's also compact and light enough to not bear you down on the trail. Whether you're a hunter, a camper, a bushcrafter, a prepper, or anything of the sort, an ESEE 4 is a worthy companion!
ESEE Knives are made in the USA and offer the most thorough warranty on the market. They're built for a lifetime!
It's size isn't too big or small, it's perfect for hiking, edc and even a hunting/survival knife if it comes to it. It's not as tough as 1095, but can still take a beating and has great retention. It rides a little high on a belt, but it could just be me. It's a knife that you could abuse, beat up, toss around, and it will still be fine if you sharpen it. If you some how break it, esee's warranty is the best around.
