    Esee knife

    Looking forward to trying out this little guy on the next camp trip . I added the para cord wrap, no need to sharpen. Between this and a hatchet I should have my cutting tools pretty well set for hiking/camping.

    I have enough trouble keeping up with the number of gun manufacturers. With hundreds & hundreds of knife makers, forget about it. I love knives too. Fill me in, please.

    I have an Izula II that is my normal backpacking knife. Between that and my tomahawk, I can complete any task I have come across thus far in my adventures. Really great little knife, it should be up to the task.

    After using a huge Cold Steel Bushman knife , this is about the extreme opposite I figure. Having added a tomahawk to the pack, I figure a small blade chore knife makes more sense. I understand the esse doesn't work well as striker , but have one attached to the magnesium stick.
    I decided on the para after handling the same model with the scale grips installed. It just felt too bulky , will see how the para wrap works out.

    Interested to hear your report, mine has the scale grips on it. They are a bit bulky, but I find they fit my hand well.

    Nice knife...congrats on the cord wrap. Do you make other items with the paracord?

    Hard to beat an izula for the bush.

    You can take seat belt strap (anything similar) and make a loop threw the top slot and then sew the ends together to make a nice little belt sheath if you don't like carrying it around your neck, etc.

    It's a very versatile tool.

    Not saying they were huge or over sized, I just like a smaller handle when doing small chores with a knife.

    I just saw that Scrap Yard Knives is no longer listing the SCRAPIVORE which was also an excellent little knife that is very similar to your ESEE.
    The BUTT of the Scrapivore is a Pry Bar but, I can honestly say that in all my years...I have never needed a Pry Bar on a camping trip.

    I was looking at the scapivore and didn't realize they were no longer made. I got a deal on the esse so it's all good

    Whoops! I screwed up. QKShooter INFRACTION - giving out false information. 25 Points.

    I just checked and it is still listed $59 and some change - No Sheath. and I guess Shipping Costs also.

    Sorry about that folks.

    Pretty OSS to what I paid for mine. You get only a warning this time as it is your first offense
