ESEE Knives has taken the best features of bushcraft/survival knives and created the outstanding ESEE-6. The ESEE-6 has become a very popular choice for an all-around wilderness/outdoor knife, and for good reason. With it's 5.75" cutting edge and 3/16" thick 1095 steel blade, it is possibly the best balanced knife ever designed by ESEE Knives. The blade measures 1.56" from cutting edge to spine. The 3/4" finger choil area right behind the cutting edge makes the knife adept at delicate tasks such as carving, making fuzz sticks, or food preparation. The razer sharp cutting edge is sharpened to approximately 20 degrees, and will hold its edge exceptionally well. The blades textured power coat is exceedingly durable, and will not wear off easily. Although it is longer than the ESEE-5, it is lighter; weighing only 12 oz it makes a great carry knife without excessive weight. Like most other ESEE Knives, The ESEE-6 features a full flat grind, making it a great all-purpose cutting and precise slicing tool. Whether you are in the military, a survivalist or an outdoorsman, this knife will soon become your best friend as you experience its superb form and function.
While they are adaptable and may be used for all manner of tasks, the ESEE-3 and ESEE-5 models may be considered to be more "tactical" in design, and the ESEE-4 and ESEE-6 may be considered to be "wilderness" knives. The ESEE-6 features a flat/rounded pommel, rather than the pointed pommel that comes standard on the ESEE-3 and ESEE-5 series. Each knife comes with a lanyard hole in the pommel. With an overall length of 11.75" and a drop point blade style, the ESEE-6 is a great knife for batoning firewood, general woodcraft, or even cleaning of fish. Its design also lends itself very well to field dressing and preparation of large and very large-sized game animals. The ESEE-6 is ideal for situations where a larger knife is needed and is still compact enough to make carrying easy. It's a great knife for camp use and for most any bushcraft needs.
