    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    I love my Izula.
    Got it here:
    ESEE Izula
    However, the Spartan is an incredible piece.

    You won't be sorry with an ESEE. I have an Izula and it's one stout little fixed blade.

    Benchmade and kershaw blades are always good they have a wide variety of fixed and folders...stay away from gerber their quality has gone down crapper, bought my dad one for Christmas got it out of the package and it really feels like a 5 dollar knife...hope this helps

    Prices depend on what you want. They are offered in different colors, handle materials and with or without accessories. I believe that you can also purchase them bare, without sheaths, online.

    I have an Esee 3MIL and an Izula II. I gave around $100 for the 3MIL and I believe $70 for the Izula II.

    I carry the Izula II quite a bit for EDC. It has the same blade as the Izula but with a bit of a longer handle.

    Best warranty in the business. You break it, they replace it.
    Company is located in Alabama and also offers survival training, both foreign and domestic.
    Knives are made in Idaho in a family owned, family operated shop.


    If you want to go a little above 3", The Eskabar produced by Ka-Bar is a knife that combines the Izula's handle with the blade shape of the Becker BK11(Becker BK11). I believe that you can find them for around $30 online.
    Nice knives i dont supose you are aware of how much the esee-5 knives are i think im going to be picking up a new knife.

    I carry the Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement Serrated. It's an excellent knife and Chicago-legal at 2 5/16" blade length. KA-BAR Knives, Inc. - Knives > All Categories > TDI Law Enforcement Knife, Serrated - Hardcore Lives. Hardcore Knives.

    I bought mine here: KA-BAR Knives: KABAR TDI Law Enforcement Knife, Serrated, KA-1481

    It comes with a fitted sheath (the knife snap locks into place, so it won't fall out) and belt clip affixed to the sheath with allen screws. Overall it's a great design for concealment.
