    I've been contemplating switching to a fixed blade for daily carry and this knife is being considered for the job.

    I don't know about you but the ESEE 3 is nearly perfect for an all around knife and I use it for EDC IWB as your about to see in the next couple of posts. Hard to believe it coats the same as the ESEE 4, I guess they know it's a perfect all arounder too!

    I know I already posted a picture of my ESEE 4 in a Godspeed Tactical "scout Sheath" for horizontal middle of back carry, but I wanted to add it here (because it's awesome) before I posted a couple more ESEE pics.



    Here's my pair of ESEE knives, a 3 (neon green/black) and a 4 (black/black) wearing TKC G10 scales. I had a 5 model but it was so freaking big it was ridiculous and there are other knives better suited for the tasks I had intended it for. Oh yeah, I'm a paracord knot tying addict to go along with my gun, knife, and motorcycle obsessions.



    I haven't carried the ESEE 4 yet, but I have mentioned in many other threads about how I carry my ESEE 3 for EDC carry so I thought I would demonstrate how. It comes in a good quality kydex sheath with a metal clip, it also comes with a condura back panel which bolts to the kydex sheath. The condura can carry the blade horizontally, but I only use the kydex with clip. Also want to mention that while carrying this knife IWB it usually sits right behind my hip bone at 3:15 and my CCW handgun rides right behind it at 4 o'clock. I know it sounds like a lot of gear, but it stays totally hidden without printing and even while carrying both weapons it is totally comfortable, if your handgun doesn't weigh a whole lot (I carry a M&P Shield 9) it doesn't even drag your pants down as long as you have on a decent belt. With no further ado:

    Okay, although I love many knives, ESEE in particular, I recently got interested in Bark Rivers knife line up and I must say that they now carry the biggest part of my heart and I can promise you that I will own many many more! This is a Bravo 1 in 3V steel with Green and Gold Elder Burl scales. I wouldn't recommend it, but you can literally shave the hair off of your face, take my word, I was stupid enough to try it bud lucky enough to still look as pretty as I did before:)

    The last of my ever growing fixed blade collection isn't nearly as impressive as my last couple of posts. The top one I really like, it's a Buck skinner blade I got at Wal-Mart for $20, well spent IMO, decent stainless, sharp, easy to sharpen, comes I a cool low pro sheath, not to mention it looks cool. Although I'm paracord crazy I decided to leave this one really simple.
    The Tanto shaped blade below it is a cool little knife I got for, get this, $4 at Harbor Freight, it has awesome tool steel and was made in Russia. To be honest I'm a tad afraid to use it very hard, although the steel is great it isn't fill tang as far as I know and the grip is made out of zytel, so if that thing breaks with that huge sharp blade...well let's just say I like my fingers. Lastly, your probably wondering why I've included a huge tool steel punch in the photo. There are a couple of knife makers that make Shivs (Dawson maybe), and since I can't afford one right now I thought I would try my hand at making one with a grinder, stay tuned for the results of that endeavor.

    I definitely see an ESEE in my future.

    Thanks, I make the scales for my knives I have about a dozen different sets. The top set is Tulip wood and the middle set is Bocote. The bottom set on the modded -5 are made from a scrap that found in the wood bin and don't know what species it is. I also have scales made from Curley maple, Blood wood, Wenge, Bubinga, Walnut, Red heart, Cherry, Paduk, and I think that I have one set made from Purple heart.

    For me it's a toss up between the -3 and -4 all though I have more -4's. I EDC an izula as I don't feel the need to carry a larger knife in the city. Out in the woods it is a -3 or -4 for EDC and a -6 for camp chores.
