Do any of you own an ESEE 5? Is it worth the money? Is edge retention good? Is the sheath well made? Is the warranty as good as they say?
I just got mine a few months ago. I've used mine out in Iraq for various things since. And I can say, yes, yes, yes. This blade is a monster. It's more of a knife shaped axe. This knife was designed by SERE instructors for survival, evasion, resistance, and evasion from a down planed. It weighs a whole pound, full tang, and a quarter inch thick. It's built to last. And the warranty alone is a good reason to buy the knife. They will replace the knife if it breaks for any reason, without question, for the life of the knife, no matter who the owner is.Do any of you own an ESEE 5? Is it worth the money?

Yes.Do any of you own an ESEE 5?
Yes. As long as you're purchasing it at MSRP or lower, yeah. You have to be careful about purchasing anything on E-bay, etc. A lot of "people" are charging more, etc.Is it worth the money?
Yes. ESEE Cutlery / Rowen Mfg. has struck an excellent balance between edge retention and ease of sharpening.Is edge retention good?
Yes. Built to last, just like the knife it secures.Is the sheath well made?
Yes. ESEE's warranty is one of the best in the business, if not the best, period.Is the warranty as good as they say?
