The ESEE-4 is a fixed blade outdoor, survival, bushcraft and tactical blade made of 1095 High Carbon Steel which holds an edge through the toughest of chores. The ESEE-4 is the longer, thicker "wilderness" model of the popular ESEE-3 tactical knife. With its 3/16" thick, full flat grind blade, rounded pommel, G-10 handles and light weight, this 7.4 oz knife can serve as a primary backpacking and wilderness survival knife, or fitted to your modular system for duty carry in a tactical environment. This is a survival knife in the truest sense of the word. It is an extremely versatile drop point blade with a 4.5" cutting edge, capable for all manor of outdoor tasks, including field dressing and preparation of medium to large-sized game animals. The blade edge is sharpened to approximately 20 degrees, and the overall length of the knife is 9.0"
Falling between the compact/tactical ESEE 3 and the larger ESEE 5 and ESEE 6 knives, the ESEE 4 is a perfect fit. Just like all ESEE Knives, the ESEE 4 is a no-nonsense knife that you can stake your life on when it comes to performance & durability. The people behind this knife developed it by experience & practical application... not theory. Regardless of your place in life, this knife will soon become your best friend as you experience its superb form & function.
The textured power coat is extremely durable, and will not wear off easily. The 3 5/8" G-10 handle slabs provide most all hand sizes a secure 4 finger grip. G-10 is made up of fiberglass soaked in resin then compressed and heated. The technique makes it resistant to liquids and allows it to remain stable under extreme temperature fluctuations.
Adding Sporting Field Handles to extend the length of the handle grip beyond the tactical style factory scales is easily achieved by installing our very popular custom G-10 handle scales; they are available in a wide variety of colors. This makes the knife much more comfortable for those with larger hands. Our custom scales bolt on easily, and will transform the function, feel, and appearance of your knife.
ESEE Knives' unique sheath system allows the user to carry the ESEE 4 in a molded plastic sheath securely on a MOLLE Platform in standard or inverted mode (when using the optional MOLLE back). The included paracord and cord lock can be used to fashion a belt loop by running the cord through the sheath attachment holes and securing with cord lock. The paracord can also be used to lash the sheath to a pack. When this knife is used with the optional MOLLE back, the elastic butt cover and Velcro retention strap add additional security measures for jumping from aircraft or other extreme activities that may cause the knife to come loose from the sheath. The sheath system is fully ambidextrous in any carry mode. It can also be belt carried, drop-leg carried or lashed to a pack. The sheath screws are made from stainless steel and no metal snaps are used on the knife retention since they have a tendency to jam with dirt and grime. Thus, this sheath package creates a compact package capable of survival uses, as well as military, law enforcement and rescue duty.

This ESEE Knife is made from high carbon 1095 steel. And while 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for - especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user's responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as Sentry Solutions MARINE TUF-CLOTH.This product is packaged in a heavy plastic bag
