Reuben Bloieu from ESEE Knives and Jungle Training said; "Dont pee in the water was one of the first things he learned when it came to safety in the Amazon River back in 2007. Reason being, the dreaded candiru. The TV series River Monsters has dubbed the candiru as The Amazons Most Feared Fish. Legend says that if one were to pee in the river, the urine would attract this little creature causing it to swim up and get lodged in the urethra there by requiring surgery to have it removed.
This ESEE Candiru comes in a Black Textured Finish with a Black Molded Sheath and Clip Plate.Specifications
