Amazing knife for the price
Dustin R.
I'm surprised these don't have any reviews already, they're solid knives. If you're looking for ESEE quality, this knife isn't *quite* there. But for around half the price of an ESEE-3 you can't go wrong.

Sheath rattles a little, throw half a cotton ball in the bottom and you're good. Fits snugly on the belt with the clip given, though I'm not sure it would hold on if snagged on a branch or brush. Small enough not to worry about it though, and for that matter it's just small enough to be a large neck knife.

Had to resharpen a little when I got it but only because I have higher standards. Nice out of the box though.

Feels good in the hands (I have slightly larger than medium hands), very similar to an ESEE-3. The choil isn't as deep as an ESEE's is though, so requires a slightly angled grip to not hold the blade with the pointer finger.

Overall great knife. If you're looking for quality steel in a cheap package you can't go wrong with this one. I've beat mine up a little bit batoning just to see how it would hold up and it did well. You'd be hard pressed to find a better deal in 1095.
