I recently purchased an Esee 4hm for myself and my son, and we love them. They feel great in the hand, mine doesn’t really get used as I am not able, but it is a way I can share in what my son is doing. He batons,feather sticks,and anything else that comes up with it. The only it doesn’t do is strike a firesteel due to the protective coating. We consider it an excellent knife. Recently we have been talking about adding an Esee pr4, rb3, or a mora carbon garberg to the fold and can not make up our mind. We read on here, and watch videos trying to decide, and ran across a Dbk knives video of an Esee 5 and 4 on YouTube and were really shocked at the ending. Are we missing something here, we have found them to be excellent knives but we are not experts.Has anyone ever had a problem with one holding an edge after batonning,we have not, is it different wood? Please educate us and help us decide between these three. Thank you, as always, you’ll are great people. Btw ... This purchase would be used for light camp carving tasks, some light batonning, striking a firesteel, etc. Thanks again.
