I received mine a couple of days ago to put in my EDC bag, and it is a great little knife. The sheath takes some wearing in to loosen up a bit, but after a few hundreds times of clicking in and out, the retention is almost normal. Not a knife you have to worry about dropping out of the sheath. Like my other ESEE knives, it came sharp out of the box and well finished. Fits great in my size medium hands and should hold up to any light/medium cutting tasks you can throw at it. Overall ergonomics are good and balanced well, coming in slightly handle heavy which is fine. It is a great little knife and glad I picked one up.
A very nice knife and fits my XL hand perfectly for such a small (3" blade) knife. Is it perfect? Nearly, but I wish it was slightly lighter since I wanted it for a neck knife. My larger Mora companion and Kansbol are lighter. Also the sheath is very tight so extraction/insertion are difficult but doable. As others have said this knife deserves a kydex sheath (aftermarket?) No knife is perfect but this comes close for a 3" blade! I wish I could compare the model I bought (no hole) to the model with the carabiner hole if it would be lighter?? The sheaths are the same.
This is my second ESEE there my favorite knife brand the Xancudo came super Sharp and I love the cpm s35vn blade I also have a ESEE 3 with the 1095 HC blade it's an awesome knife also ESEE has the best warranty you can't go wrong with ESEE
Been using this incredible knife for a few months now, it's another knock out by ESEE. The S35VN is incredible and came razor sharp. The stonewash finish is one of the most gorgeous finishes I've ever seen. The knife handles like a bigger izula despite having a solid 3 inch blade, so it's honestly a perfect EDC as well as just a solid primary blade while out in the woods. 10/10, definitely worth it.
