The 11 inches ESEE-5 is a full tang 1095 high carbon steel construction with an OD green powder coated flat ground 5.25 inches blade. This blade features jimping on the spine for increased thumb grip. The Handle is made out of tan Micarta canvas, and features a glass breaker on the pommel.

ESEE knives made from high carbon 1095 steel will rust and stain if not properly cared for, especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the users responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor on the blade. Use Lock Tite when assembling any hardware, such as attaching the clip plate to the sheath.
No Questions Asked Warranty on all 1095 carbon steel knives. If you break it, send it back and we will replace it. No sales receipt needed. Does not cover rust or normal wear and tear.

I've got a dozen or so other knives - this is the most expensive. And, of course, clearly the best.
I read all the Q&As and Reviews, here and on the other Esse5s here on Amazon, so was prepared to see a good product. Got tired of all the "Beast" comments. But - it really is a heavy duty knife! I've got other 5"ers but this one is twice as massive. The coating is perfect - like what they spray on a pickup truck bed, not a spray-on paint job. Looks like it will be around for 2 or 3 generations. The micarta handle is great. Some have written that it is rough on your hands, will take of skin. Not so. Unless you have baby soft skin hands and use it for an hour or so trying to cut down trees. Comfortable to my medium sized hands. I've made a dozen or so knives, focused on making sure the scales are comfortable - so I'm sure I'll not have to ever "Make or Buy" to replace these. The Sheath - also Top Notch. Has a little safety slide to prevent the knife being pulled out by someone who shouldn't. But the sheath is strong/tight enough that the knife wouldn't fall out if you jumped off a roof with the knife/sheath upside down.
Only word of caution - if you plan on getting a TechLok to use to attach to this sheath (so you can attach it to a belt or strap in a manner different than the provided steel spring clip allows) - the hTech-Lok holes won't line up with the holes in the Esse sheath. So, you'll have to drill a hole or two in something.
I would not classify this knife as being designed for 'self-protection'. It is perfectly balanced and comfortable - but still heavy. I don't think it's practical as a concealed every day carry for tactical purposes. But - it was clearly NOT DESIGNED exclusively for that. It is an all-round, functional, 'survival' knife. " ....If I could only have one...." type of knife - that will cut large branches, baton, feather, gut and skin and - yes - perform admirably in case of a need to defend yourself. Few want to carry 3 knives - so this is the one you would grab if you felt you had to do 'all of the above".
