ESEE Model 6 desert tan blade 6P-DE survival knife with black sheath + belt clip
The ESEE Model 6 is a solid survival knife with a blade made from 1095 carbon steel. The extremely sustainable powder coating on the blade protects it from the increased corrosion sensitivity of the carbon steel. The wonderful usage qualities of the steel guarantee a lifetime of pleasure. The full tang blade is enhanced with a micarta handle. The handle feels slightly coarse which is great for grip and comfort. The ESEE Model 6 is a large and solid knife that can withstand extremely heavy use. The model 6 weighs 335 grams. That is quite heavy for a knife. But if you don't mind the weight you know you will be left with an incredibly solid knife.
The ergonomics are excellent. The handle is enhanced with a curve for your index finger. The handle is quite large. Also suitable for large hands. If you place your index finger in the curve at the base of the blade, your thumb will automatically fall on the ridges that are added to the top of the blade. As such you have more control over the knife. The back of the knife has a large hole for a lanyard. The back of the blade runs throughout the handle. As such you can also use the knife as a hammer. It might not be a real glass breaker but because it is so heavy this knife can break through a thick layer of glass.
This edition of the ESEE Model 6 comes with a Zytel sheath. This includes a belt clip.

I wanted a large bushcraft knife and my researches led me to the ESEE 6. I was pleased to see Knives and Tools offered this model at a much lower price than competitors, so ordered one. It came within 48 hours, excellent service. The knife far exceeds my expectations. It is heavy enough to chop wood and balanced enough to carve. It was razor-sharp out of the box and remained so after some hard testing. The handle fits my large hand beautifully and the whole thing hangs comfortably in the fitted sheath. A top-quality large knife at an excellent price!
