ESEE 6P-B Plain Edge Fixed Blade Survival Knife ESEE (Randall’s Adventure & Training – RAT) knives are made from high 1095 carbon steel. This being a TOP choice for professional cutlery designed for harsh environments, it will rust and stain if not properly oiled an deposited – on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. If you are a fan of ESEE knives, then it must be familiar that these knives are usually small in their design. However, the brand has now broken this record by introducing its first large knife, which is the ESEE 6P-B survival tool with fixed blade and plain edge. It is not only the first big knife, but also perhaps the finest tool with supreme balance as well as fitting in hand.

In terms of functionality, this model is not a skinning, carving, or a fighting knife. In fact, it is actually a splitting, cleaving, digging, splitting, and hacking knife, ideal for cutting bamboo, opening boxes, and digging holes in mud walls. This survival knife, in this way, is a versatile tool. Right from chopping onions to splitting firewood and clearing camp area, there is nothing that it cannot do.

In terms of quality and value, purchasing an ESEE Knife is a decision where you can’t go wrong. Since 1997 ESEE company has designed affordable field knives specifically targeted to military, law enforcement, and the special operations community. They have built a solid reputation.

Pros:

  • The blade is built using high carbon 1095 steel, the first preference for having professional cutlery for hard or heavy use. While this is the plus point, it is essential to clean and lubricate it properly, so that it does not stain or rust.
  • The handle is made using Micarta and is removable. The grip works well with gloves or bare hands. The full tang feature makes the handle ideal for triggering fire or hammering. The tool also comes with molded, high quality plastic sheath and optional clip.
  • With an overall length of 11.75 inches, the 1095 steel blade of the ESEE 6P-B Fixed Blade Knife is 6.50 inches of perfection. The handle material is Grey Micarta Scale and carefully matches the shape and form of the blade, making for a great unison in craftsmanship. The entire package comes with a Black Molded Polymer sheath, not the worst, but definitely not living up to what the knife itself brings. It is a bit of a letdown considering the knife’s quality, but isn’t a game changer.

Cons:

  • I personally prefer the Fallkniven because of the VG-10 steel, the texture of the handle and because I like how it looks but you should think long and hard before you discard the ESEE 6.
