    Default New Esee 6

    My new Esee 6 arrived with mollie back and pouch, From Knifeworks, great people, great service. The Esee 6 is very well made all gear bolt together and fits like a glove. Sheath comes with plate for belt carry. Knife is very secure in sheath and very sharp so far I really like it quality seems great. Anybody looking for a good quality American made knife check out Esee for sure. Will put it through its paces and review with pics later.

    I looked at the 6, but decided on the Laser Strike instead. Really, it was an impulse buy. I convexed the edge (which I find much easier to maintain). I also squared the back. Can't imagine a knife designed for field craft and especially fire making without having a squared, "sharp" back. I've played with it a bit, but I'm anxious for a little more woods time...perhaps after Easter. The LS is my first "big" knife. (It's only a little more than 5"). I find my BRKT Bravo 1 easier to use for feather sticks and push cuts-same for my Moras- but I think I'd be more inclined to treat the Esee a bit rougher. The 6 I looked at was beautiful, but was more knife than I wanted (now-). I'll be anxious to see your review.

    For me, the performance of the ESEE-6 (RC-6) was dramatically improved when I removed the drag-causing blade coating, installed comfortable G10 scales with palm swells (from TKC) and, put a convex edge (no V-grind shoulder to cause drag) on the blade. It is a fairly enjoyable knife to work with since these modifications some time back. Enjoy the new knife!
