This ESEE-4 is a fixed blade outdoor, survival, bushcraft and tactical blade made of 440C stainless steel making it ideal for harsh weather conditions and any environment that is damp or wet. 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, G10 handles and light weight, this 8 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 4.1" 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 and durability. The people behind this knife developed it by experience and practical application... not theory.
