Expert review: ESEE model 4P-KO survival knife
Maarten van der Sluijs, a bushcraft specialist and outdoor enthusiast, was kind enough to test the ESEE model 4P-KO survival knife for us. The knife comes with a sheath and belt clip. Maarten grew up on the Veluwe where he was blessed with a piece of private forest. From childhood, he developed a close relationship with nature.
He has been collecting military items since he was a teenager. Maarten has also hosted numerous survival weekends. This hobby soon spread to include bushcraft. This is also where his interest in knives started. The collection started with a Fällkniven A1, but soon expanded.
His collection of sharpening and maintenance products grew proportional to his knife collection. Thanks to the piece of forest on the Veluwe, Maarten uses his knives almost every weekend. For the past two years, he has been comparing different knives and steels in search of the perfect steel, handle and type of edge.
Maarten on the ESEE model 4P-KO Maarten tested this knife extensively, based on several criteria. Making feather sticks, using the knife to baton, cut and carve: the ESEE has seen it all. Maarten's conclusion is clear: the ESEE model 4 is a knife that will last you a lifetime.
