Realm Outfitter Commentary

The ESEE 5 is a knife that all your friends will envy. To be clear, if weight is a consideration, then the ESEE 5 is NOT for you. This is 1/4 inch steel. Yes, you read that correctly, 1/4 inch. That is armor plate thickness. Designed around the situations a downed pilot may find themselves in the ESEE 5 is a BEAST of a knife. It has a pointed pommel for breaking through the windshield. The weight of the blade makes it an effective machete, and batoning is a breeze since the steel is so thick. Be careful though, the blade geometry of the ESEE 5 comes to an edge razor enough for shaving and bush crafting, which I liked. The micarta handles has a bearing block/socket already carved out for the spindle of a fire bow. This is a great knife for storage in a vehicle, like a truck, bug-out vehicle, tank, etc… It would not be ideal for long hikes where weight matters more. The sheath is also a bit unique from other ESEE sheaths, as it has a locking mechanism, which is a nice feature. You don’t want that heavy knife falling out. Since this is 1095 carbon steel it comes with ESEE’s lifetime warranty and is heat treated with their proprietary method. If you are looking for a heavy knife, that can chop down a tree and make breakfast, you won’t regret purchasing the ESEE 5!

Care/Maintenance: ESEE carbon steel knives are made from 1095 steel. 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for – especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user’s responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH.
