Esee 5

ESEE-5 Outdoorsman Knife Review

Randall’s Adventure Training was established in 1997 by Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin as an outdoor survival training agency providing global training, gear, and logistical solutions to military and law enforcement agencies as well as civilians in remote environments.

Unlike many knife companies, ESEE does not release a new knife simply because it looks good on paper. Instead, they personally field test each new prototype before it makes it to the production stage.

Then, based upon feedback, they tweak the final design and the knife is placed into production. After that, the finished knife is field tested again stateside and during jungle survival outings in the Peruvian Amazon as well as by numerous users around the world who submit feedback on their experiences with ESEE knives.

So, when you buy an ESEE knife, you know that you are getting a knife that is specifically designed by experienced experts in outdoor survival. Such is the case with the ESSE-5 which is specifically designed to be a downed pilot’s survival knife.

However, it would obviously work very well for most anyone in a survival situation.

Click to view on Amazon.com!

The ESEE-5 survival knife features an 11 inch overall length with a gorgeous drop point blade shape measuring 51/4″ in length and is constructed using 1/4″ 1095 high carbon steel hardened to 55-57 Rockwell with a high, flat ground (their web site says it’s a saber grind but it is incorrect!), bevel, and a textured black or olive drab green powder coat finish.

Also, both colors are available with both serrated and non-serrated edges. In addition, it also features a very ergonomic, full-tang, grip shape with handle slabs made from canvas Micarta (Rucarta) and a built in glass breaker/bow drill pivot on the end and it includes a Kydex sheath w/clip plate.

In my opinion, this is one beautiful knife; very functional as well! While I am not entirely certain that a Drop Point is more appropriate than Clip Point for the purpose of outdoor survival, it is a stronger point.

Thus, in that respect, I guess it is better than a Clip Point. Regardless of the merits of either tip shape, the designers of the ESEE-5 must have had a flash of genius when designing this knife because every line is as about a perfect as is humanly possible!

For instance, the drop point blade shape is one of my favorites because it does so many different jobs well and, because the tip of the blade is situated out of the way when skinning game, you can see exactly what you are doing and thus, you have the greatest amount of control over the knife which is very important when you need to preserve the hides intact for later use.

Also, the serrations along the spine of the blade near the handle are very handy and they provide a non-slip surface for your thumb when applying extra pressure to the blade to make difficult cuts.

In addition, the tiny ricasso allows the long, straight, section of the edge to extend almost all of the way back to the single quillion formed by the Micarta grip which allows the user to apply the maximum amount of leverage when carving. Plus, the long, straight section of the edge is just long enough to be an effective slicing tool and it transitions into a beautiful sweep with the perfect angle near the tip for skinning game.

Turning our attention to the handle, it too is very nearly perfect. The choice of canvas Micarta (Rucarta) is both an obvious one and a good one since canvas Micarta provides an excellent gripping surface and it is impervious to heat, cold, abrasion, impact, and most chemicals. Thus, the handle slabs will easily last as long as the knife blade (if properly sharpened) and probably longer.

Also, the shape of the grip is obviously designed with knowledge of the anatomy of the human hand in mind since it incorporates a slight reverse taper with a noticeable downward curve at the end which causes it to very closely follow the dimensions of the user’s hand. In addition, the canvas Micarta slabs are affixed to the full tang in three different places for a secure fit and the tang extends out of the back of the Micarta slabs to form a glass breaker/bow drill pivot point.

Last, while 1095 high carbon steel is both a good choice and a common choice of steel for outdoor knives intended for hard use because it is good compromise between a hard steel and a tough steel, it’s not a stainless steel and thus, it is subject to corrosion.

Consequently, the ESEE-5’s blade is coated with a baked-on powder coat in your choice of black or olive drab green which prevents corrosion on all but the edge of the knife.

Also, the Rockwell hardness of 55-57 is an excellent hardness point for this steel and for survival knives in general because it is hard enough to hold and edge and yet, it is not so hard that it is brittle. So, while I would prefer it if the blade on this knife were made from a stainless steel such as AUS-8, the powder coating does reduce maintenance to a minimum.

Consequently, although I do believe that the ESEE-5 survival knife is one of the prettiest blade and handle shapes I have seen yet and, although I do believe that it would be an excellent choice for an outdoor survival knife (especially for its stated purpose of being a hard use knife for downed pilots).

I also believe that it is a little bit too short to serve as a sole survival knife (although a shorter knife is easier to carry in a plane) and thus, I would be more inclined to carry it if I were to mate it with a larger and longer knife to handle the light chopping jobs often necessary in a survival situation.

To Wrap It Up

The Esee 5 Fixed Blade Knife is a beautifully crafted knife with a finish you’ll rarely find in this price category. It is a huge leap forward from the previous models, with a much more ergonomic handle and a blade that can hold an edge much longer.

It is a massive survival knife that can work double duty as a defense knife. It also comes with some premium features such as a kydex sheath and six amazing color combos to choose from. It doesn’t shine bright as a bushcraft knife, but it is surely a trustworthy backup survival knife you can entrust your kids or grandkids with.

ESEE Knives® / Randall’s Adventure & Training® makes some tough knives. And the ESSE-5 is one of the toughest. It was designed by military SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape) instructors as a hard-use downed pilot’s survival knife. If you are looking for knife that won’t let you down when the chips are down, the ESEE-5 certainly fits the bill.

The ESEE-5 has an overall length of 11 inches with a versatile 5.25-inch drop point blade with a saber grind. This type of grind provides maximum edge strength and a strong point, although it sacrifices some cutting ability.

The blade is made of 0.25-inch thick 1095 carbon steel, hardened to HRC 55-57 and finished with your choice of a a textured black, OD or Venom Green powder-coat finish.

The blade is made of 1095 high carbon steel. 1095 carbon steel is a basic steel that contains approximately 0.95% carbon (hence the 95 in 1095) and 0.4% manganese as the main alloying elements. It’s reasonably tough, holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen. The US Marine Corps has specified 1095 carbon steel for its issue knives since WWII.

The major drawback to this type of steel is that it rusts fairly easily. However, with a little care you won’t ever have a problem. ESEE Knives suggests using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE® or TUF-CLOTH®.

The ESEE-5 is available with either a plain edge or partially serrated blade. I went with the partially serrated blade, as it offers the advantages the plain edge for precise push cuts and the advantages of the serrated edge for slicing cuts, especially through tougher materials, including rope and webbing.

The serrations on ESEE knives are among the best in the industry. They’re significantly more efficient and easily cut through rope, seat belts or other flexible materials They also slice very well and don’t get caught up in material like other most other designs. Plus, sharpening the ESEE serrations is a breeze. You just sharpen the edge the same as you would on a plain blade.

All ESEE knives feature full tang construction for strength. The handle slabs (scales) on the ESEE-5 are made of canvas Micarta®, a high-pressure laminate made from a cotton fabric and a phenolic resin. Not only is it extremely durable, it looks great and provides a superior gripping surface. The scales are attached with blackened stainless steel hex-socket screws in three locations.

The ESSE-5 has several cool and potentially lifesaving features. The handle on the ESEE-5 is equipped with a bow drill divot for use with a bow drill for fire starting in a wilderness survival situation. The ESEE-5 also features a glass-breaker pommel with a large lanyard hole. The glass breaker point is of a pyramidal design with four flats. It’s very effective.

If you are looking for a lightweight knife, the ESEE-5 isn’t for you. Weighing in at 16 ounces, it’s a heavy knife designed for extreme use. Some have even likened it to a sharpened pry bar, but that doesn‘t do it justice.

Although it’s a beast, the ESEE-5 is suitable for both heavy duty and detailed tasks. It has outstanding ergonomics and balance. Thumb jimping on the spine allows for precise blade control when needed.

The ESEE-5 has a custom high-quality Kydex® sheath with mounting grommets. The sheath secures the knife with no rattle. The sheath features an adjustable slide lock tension system that’s licensed from Blind Horse Knives. The sheath has a drainage hole at the bottom. A 550 paracord lanyard with cord lock is also included with the ESEE-5 sheath.

The ESEE-5 sheath comes with an ambidextrous clip plate. Mounting screws and washers are included. The spring steel clip allows for easy belt carry. The clip makes the knife quick to don and doff. It’s quite secure.

The sheath hole spacing on the ESEE-5 sheath also fits Blade-Tech® attachments, including the TEK-LOK™ and MOLLE LOK™. Optional accessories available from ESEE Knives for the ESEE-5 include a Cordura® nylon MOLLE back and a Cardura®  nylon sheath pouch. The sheath pouch can be used to hold a small survival kit, such as the ESEE  Mini Survival Kit.

The workmanship on the ESEE-5 received for evaluation was outstanding. The knife was absolutely flawless. The blade was exceptionally sharp right out of the box, another demonstration of ESEE Knives great attention to detail.
If you are looking for a heavy-duty, hard-use fixed-blade tactical or survival knife, you won’t find a better knife than the ESEE-5.

All ESEE knives are made for ESEE Knives by Rowen Manufacturing in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

The ESEE-5 has a MSRP from $188.00. Each knife is individually serial numbered. For a personal touch, ESEE Knives can laser engrave your department or team logo or badge. ESEE Knives has a license on file to engrave knives for employees and agents of the ATF and the USMS.

ESEE knives are covered by what’s undoubtably the best warranty in the industry. If you break an ESEE knife, they will replace it, no questions asked. The warranty is lifetime and transferable. No receipt or proof of purchase is required.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • Question: Does this knife come with all that is shown in the picture (nylon sheath, tin box, and cord)? One of the reviews states it comes with a Kydex sheath

    Answer: Comes with Kydex sheath and belt clip. Make sure it says that it comes with these items or you will only get the knife. The Molle attachment is extra.
  • Question: What is the blade thickness? I was considering the KA-BAR Becker 22 with the 1/4" blade but ran across this.

    Answer: What knife is better overall, the bk2 or the esee 5? I'm looking for anybody's opinion and everybody's opinion. I know the bk2 is cheaper but if they were both $80 which one would you choose or if they were the same price which is a better knife overall 4 camping, survival and utility? Please help everybody thank
  • Question: Is this a drop-point or a clip-point blade?

    Answer: It is a drop point blade. Very heavy and thick.
  • Question: Blade length ?

    Answer: Over all length 11" Blade length 5 1/4" Thinkness 1/4"
  • Question: I want to know what do you guys prefer... green blade or black?

    Answer: I have the green blade, didn’t know if I’d like it or not at first, but it’s a beast of a knife so color did not matter at all after my first use!
  • Question: Rc5pod-brk model 5 from "makais." others have esee in title, not in this one. anyone know if this is the esee 5 that is in the description?

    Answer: Yes i can confirm it is an ESEE 5
  • Question: What sharpening angle for esee knives?

    Answer: You asked what the sharpening angle was for ESEE knives. I don't know if all ESEE knives have the same sharpening angle and would guess that they don't. But for my ESEE 5, the sharpening angle is 20 degrees on both sides. I confirmed this by calling them today. I love this knife; it's a do-everything type. The size, thickness, and weight of the blade allows you to use it like an axe. i think it's one of ESSE's best fixed blades.
  • Question: Model rc5pd-brk means?

    Answer: RC5 is what it was called here is the current designations ESEE-5P-KO-E (Black Blade, Plain Edge, Knife Only, No Sheath) ESEE-5S-KO-E (Black Blade, Partially Serrated, Knife Only, No Sheath) ESEE-5P-KO-OD-E (OD Blade, Plain Edge, Knife Only, No Sheath) ESEE-5S-KO-OD-E (OD Blade, Partially Serrated, Knife Only, No Sheath) ESEE-5P-E (Black Blade, Plain Edge, Kydex Sheath) ESEE-5S-E (Black Blade, Partially Serrated, Kydex Sheath) ESEE-5P-OD-E (OD Blade, Plain Edge, Kydex Sheath) ESEE-5S-OD-E (OD Blade, Partially Serrated, Kydex Sheath) ESEE-5P-VG-E (Venom Green Blade, Plain Edge, Kydex Sheath)
  • Question: Does this come with Kyxdex sheath? Also whats the difference between this and he other black blade?

    Answer: Kydex fits great! Not sure what other knife you are referencing. Basically, your options are G10 vs Micarta handle , pick your color, Blade Serrated or Plain, pick your color...now they have other uncoated and stainless options, I believe - select models only maybe. These 1095's are the originals and what the reputation was built upon. This knife is as solid as it gets, and you can get them razor sharp, super easy to resharpen. I can't answer your question of the specific knife difference as it does not say what you are comparing to...if it does not say comes with sheath, definitely ask the seller for clarification. You probably know this, do not assume because it says nothing about the sheath that it comes with one. Plenty of knives do not, and it makes no sense to buy a knife with no sheath unless you have plans to have one custom made, or have a preferred maker in mind that can produce a sheath for this exact model because they already have it, and can guarantee fit. Read my review, too, it is all true. If you are going for serious hard use, bring a field strop/stone kit with you.

Decent

After putting this knife through the chores appropriate for its class, I feel that it fell short of my expectations. It managed to accomplish most of the tasks at an acceptable level. However, I think the BK2 - with upgraded sheath and scales - is a much better knife design and performs better for its class. I do think the ESEE-5 would be reliable in a survival situation, but I don't think it would be my preferred knife in this class. Given a choice between the ESEE-5 and the BK2, I would choose the BK2. The ESEE-5 is better out of the box and requires less aftermarket upgrades. Edge retention is a solid 7/10. Chopping is a 6/10 due in large part to the handle design and blade profile. Feathersticking is a 5/10. The coating has held up much better that the coating on the BK2. I'd give the coating a 7/10. Overall knife design and performance for its class 6.5/10.

Heavy, but you knew that right?

Heavy as others describe. I like it as a conversation piece, but honestly for the weight I will probably carry a small hatchet and a folder and accomplish more versatility for hiking and backpacking. It is a very well built knife though and happy to add to my collection.

Description

After our Ontario contract ended in April, 2007, we decided to produce a higher quality line of knives outside of the mass production capabilities of Ontario. The new ESEE Line (Formerly RAT Cutlery) is considered "mid-tech" in the sense of quality and manufacturing procedures. This means you will notice upgrades to sheathing, fit, finish and detail on ESEE knives. Most important, ESEE is now in a position to respond quickly to new product development and upgrades to existing lines. All of our designs fit the bill of desirable field cutlery when it comes to toughness, comfort, and cutting efficiency. Unlike a lot of manufacturers, ESEE doesn't just release a new knife because it looks cool on paper - we personally field test each new design prototype before is makes it to the production stage. Once we make the final design tweaks and the knife is put into production, we test the design again during field outings Stateside and jungle survival classes in the Peruvian Amazon. We also have users around the world that test our knives and submit feedback. When you buy a ESEE knife you know you're getting a knife designed by real users.
