Esee 6 Review

Here comes the big boys and the ESEE 6 definitely is a big boy. The 11.75” fixed blade full tang constructed knife is suited more for the outdoors than EDC. Unless of course you like giving your officemates a shock every time you open a box. The ESEE 6 has a 6.50” long 0.19” thick blade that is perfect for most camping tasks and is strong enough to do much more. If your life depends on it, you would be glad to have an ESEE 6 strapped to your side or thigh than a puny 3” folder. Designed by Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, there is simply no doubt on ESEE 6’s strength and dependability. The ESEE 6 passed multiple rugged testing from various outdoorsmen and military personnel all over the world. Whether you are an avid outdoorsman, into law enforcement or military or maybe simply a collector of hardcore knives, you are sure to appreciate the ergonomics and design of the ESEE 6.

BLADE

The ESEE 6 comes with a 6.50” long 0.19” thick 1095 High Carbon Steel blade. It is a black powder coated blade that increases the protection of the knife from corrosion and rust. The 1095 is the best choice for knives of ESEE 6’s caliber. It is made to take and endure abuse that would simply shatter other blades but the 1095 will just keep on coming. It is not stainless steel and as such requires a certain amount of maintenance but with that aside, there is not much that can bring the 1095 down. The ESEE 6’s blade spine has a good amount of jimping to improve grip and control making it a lot safer than most knives of its size.

HANDLE

The ESEE 6 has a full tang construction, common for knives its size and purpose which means the blade material actually extends all the way to the pummel. The handle of the ESEE 6 has an ergonomic design that makes it easy to grip and control, vital for camping where you will need to get a secure grip on your knife. The handle has removable Micarta slabs but one can request for G-10 if they prefer.
