    I got my Izula a couple days ago.

    Like I mentioned in another thread, I'm hoping this Izula will replace my Moto Blur as my EDC blade. The clip on that folder was giving some of my furniture heck.
    I ordered the survival kit so I would have the means to clip it to my belt and it seems to ride pretty good right above my right front pocket. Easy access and easy sheathing. I used some black paracord that I had to wrap it with. Time will tell... the only problem I foresee right now is when I appendix carry, so maybe I'll try above my rear pocket, too.
    Here it is alongside the Morakniv that was recommended. That's a very stout knife. I really like the full size grip. I have no idea what/where I'll use it yet, but it's here when I figure that out.

    The Izula is a heck of a little knife for the price. Hard to go wrong with one.

    The izula is on my Christmas list. I have a mora knit as well... I use it in the kitchen lol. Easy to sharpen, stood blade, perfect length for most kitchen tasks... And the handle is great when you are butchering wet chicken.

    The Izula and Izula II are great EDC sized fixed blades that are capable of pretty much anything relative to their size. I think ESEE makes a great product, all around, although I'm not a huge fan of their injection molded sheaths.

    I bought an Izula about a year before the Izula II came out, and quickly picked up the II shortly after it's release. Here is the my II and Candiru, which is also a great little fixed blade in it's own right...

    My izula II rides nicely right behind my hip. Be careful buying as China is now making copies that may not be as durable as the Esse knife.

    I am.
    I had to fiddle a little with the ends of the paracord wrap this morning as it is under a T shirt against my skin. The hot knifed ends were sharp and irritating me. All is good now though.

    Agreed! 2014-07-30 10.15.52.jpg One would be hard pressed not to like it and carry it always.

    A little feedback after wearing for a few days.
    I much prefer carrying it like someone mentioned. About 5:00 works very well, but because my belt is only single thickness back there it tends to slide and cant a little.
    The smaller handle and smaller blade are actually quite nice. I thought I would prefer the "largeness" of my Ken Onion, but the smaller size suits me well for my everyday tasks.
    Now the kicker, today I'll be out and about and realized when I slip one of my OWB rigs on, it will be very close to the knife. Reaching for one or the other shouldn't be a problem, but now accessing the knife exposes my pistol... Back to the drawing board I guess. I'd like to find a spot for it to call home, like my folder used to be in my back pocket, but obviously I can't have it interfering with handgun. Looks like I'll be moving it up by my front pocket again.

    I just got mine to add to the single sling of my maxpedition bag. I am very pleased with it and liked the sheath much better after I drew it about 30 times.
