The ESEE-5, conceived by military SERE instructors as a robust survival knife for downed pilots, boasts a substantial 0.25" blade thickness, embodying toughness, durability, and practicality. Crafted from high carbon 1095 steel, known for its excellence in hard-use cutlery, the ESEE-5 demands proper care to prevent rust and staining, particularly around the cutting edge and laser engraving. Users are advised to keep the blade adequately lubricated and cleaned, with dry film rust inhibitors like TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH recommended. The 3D machined G10 handles enhance the knife's ergonomic grip compared to slab Micarta scales. Noteworthy features include spine jimping, full tang construction, a lanyard hole, and a glass breaker. The knife is complemented by a Kydex sheath, clip plate, paracord lanyard, and cord lock.
