Description

Description

This ESEE Izula II knife is black finished with tan canvas Micarta scales and a black sheath.

You're probably familiar with the original Izula knife, the Izula II is also designed to be the perfect lightweight survival kit or concealed carry knife. The difference between the Izula and the Izula II is the 1/2" longer handle and the full canvas micarta scales. The Izula II will also include a durable black injection molded carry sheath and can be purchased in the Izula System kit as well.

Too expensive compared to modern folders, but otherwise unique

By now this should be upgraded to D2, which cuts better and tarnishes less than 1095. 1095 is renowned for (1) toughness and (2) cheapness; but using 1095 here isn't really saving us any dough, and the toughness is probably wasted on such a short-bladed sheath knife.

That having been said, I bought this for the size, weight, and ergonomics and am not disappointed, I would buy it again in a heart beat. It's very easy to "deploy", just snap the plastic sheath off with your thumb on the spine - no tricks with thumbstuds, holes, or flippers. It has a great grip, and it will never close on your fingers or fail if used for home self defense. I can easily be carried in a rear pocket, it only rises slightly above the rim.

In terms of tarnishing/corrosion, I dab cooking oil along the edge and the black crinkle finish takes care of the rest of the blade.

The skeletonized, gripless Candiru is more appealing as a neck knife, but even with paracord the grip borders on uselessness - the handles twists too much in the hand - and the neck carry option is illegal outside the home in my jurisdiction (but on the other hand, folder size is unlimited).

In addition to keeping you possibly safer in a hotel room yes, this can be used for simple food prep on the road - cutting a sandwich in half, opening bags, cutting up a bbq chicken. However I save the Izula-II as a GOH (get out of hell) last ditch blade, and use a folding utility knife for such kitchen chores and opening cartons, to keep the Izula factory edge untouched. I've never been good at sharpening, but through trial and error I've discovered that factory edges generally cut as well as ApostleP custom hand sharpen 'n' polish, BUT just don't stay sharp as long.
Awesome edc fixed blade

Just as great as I expected. Fit and finish is great,ergonomics are perfect. I carry this daily on my belt and you forget itís there. The sheath that comes with the knife is great,but I also bought a Armatus architect sheath so I could carry IWB. Highly recommend their sheaths,they are wonderful. Overall this is an awesome little guy,and despite its size it can tackle most tasks.
