5.0 out of 5 stars So far so great, March 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ESEE KNIVES MODEL 3 ORANGE G-10 ESEE 3P-OD KO Knife Only
I've just received this knife after much research and bought it with the ESEE 6 as a combo for camping/bushcraft. I've just messed around with the 3, feather sticks, small batoning and trap notches and it is great. Small, nimble and tough is how'd I'd describe it now. We'll see after some camping next week where I'll put it through some paces. I think this is a great size for an all around camp knife or daily at home knife. The 6 will be for bigger chores, processing wood, hacking, trail clearing, etc. However, just messing around with the 6 I could choke up on it and carve reasonably well. Who wants that big of a knife to prepare food for the campfire. I think the 3 is a sweet spot of size and shape, and weight. The sheath is slim and comfortable. I worry that the plastic belt clip may not endure, but seems of good quality plastic.
I bought the OD Green/G10 handle version and the scales came quite sticky out of the bag. I think that the epoxy used was not cured enough or didn't have enough catalyst or was in cold, damp while curing. Against my better judgement I followed others advice to 'clean' the scales with Goof Off, and thankfully that has taken the stickiness away without apparent harm to the scales.
