Hi guys, I made a video review of the Silky Big Boy 2000 XL that I'd like to share with you guys and get your thoughts on. I personally feel in love with it. I've used several others: Bahco, Fiskars, and some other brands you can get at home improvement stores. Man this thing cuts through...
what is a good knife for a load carrier?
I am putting together a fighting load carrier (FLC) and am looking at mounting a knife on it. I have an SOG mini pentagon 2. It has a blade of around 3 inches. Which makes it nice and compact.
On the other hand, do you really need a knife on a load...
Updated this thread and title due to the addition of bragging posts regarding some awesome Esee items I ordered from Oldwarrior64's website "Paracord Gear Store LLC", kinda showing it off/bragging!
Ladies and gents, just a reminder that we have an Esee social group here on Survivalist...
Hello everyone, I just wanted to see what others prefer for their knives! This could be EDC, survival knife, anything.
My favorite EDC is my ESEE RAT at the moment. It has maintained its edge well and I have abused it plenty. This may change when my Emerson arrives soon.
As for a...

Before anyone freaks out about yet another esee question, hear me out. I know I am going to buy a jungalas and a candiru eventually. However I am stuck on choosing between the esee 4 and 5. I know this reeks of fanboyness but I really want to stick with esee! American made and a great warranty...
Now that I'm more experienced with my blades, I've been thinking about
what I'd really need in a survival knife. The thing that I'd see myself using it
for most would be for fire & shelter building.
When I've used my ESEE-6, I've looked at stuff I'd want to tackle
(like chopping down small...
Alright guys. This is a mega grey area. I have had every possible answer so I am crowd sourcing this one. Open carrying of knives in Florida. I have just got my beautiful ESEE-3 in the mail yesterday and am in love. The only problem is I can't find out if/when/where I can wear it (I know...
My ESEE is "all that". It's impressive. I've yet to sharpen it and have gone through yards of whittling wood.
Everything else I own sucks by comparison. The closest thing to it is my Mora Companion, but it's still no ESEE.
My Condor Rodan doesn't seem like such a great deal anymore...
It was about 1:00am. I couldn't sleep, so I got up and went to my back deck.
I grabbed a stick I found out back and spent about an hour and a half whittling.
I took my time to learn the intricacies of my knife. I got out a lot of stress and
created a pile of tinder about 1 square foot in area...
After months of saving $10 each paycheck I have the cash to grab a tool I have had my eye on for about two years now. I really want to grab an ESEE-3 with the dark linen micarta handle and green liner. It seems like the perfect size to keep in an e.d.c. bag yet capable enough to take into the...
A good knife is worth the money.
Quality doesn't have to cost a lot.
At least one knife in a collection should be a top notch high quality
piece and that one should be the one with the most uses.
ESEEs are all that and a bag of chips.
Moras are all that and a bag of chips.
Now that my Hellcat is pretty much done, I'm going to turn my attention to my ESEE-6 and
try to cram as much as I can into a survival kit for it without becoming gaudy or impractical.
On the way to me this week...

-ESEE MOLLE Back

Here are the next purchases I plan to make. Instead of buying 1 ESEE small blade,
I decided to buy 3 more knives in one shot. 1 small blade + 2 more 5"+ blades.
I'll save the high quality small knife purchase for my next round.
I'd appreciate any input in my budding collection.
I got my ESEE-6 today.
For anyone who's interested in one, Chestnut Knife Shop gave me the best
deal and I had it in 3 days for $126./shipped (and that's with the sheath).
I cut myself with it on purpose because I wanted to have that little baptism
of blood that some others have...
I've been bitten by the ESEE bug and I've created a 'support group'...
