New ESEE-4 Scales From The Knife Connection

One of the most asked questions about ESEE Knives is “Are there different scales available for purchase?” ESEE has decided not to offer replacement scales but The-Knife-Connection has decided to fill that gap. The free market works!

 

The scales extend the length of the handle and provide a "beak" for additional grip. Click to enlarge.

 

The scales aren’t just simple copies of the original scales. They actually add some functionality in the form of a slight palm swell and some additional length. Some people find the ESEE handles to be a bit short so these replacement scales will be a welcome upgrade for them.

 

The contours will be appreciated by many users. Click to enlarge.

 

The-Knife-Connection will be offering these scales in several colors of G-10. They are machined to ensure a consistent fit. They will eventually have scales for other ESEE Knives as well, like the Izula and ESEE-3. You can see more pictures and read more about the scales at the ESEE Forum on BladeForums.com.

Boker Plus Tom Krein Pocket Bowie

The much anticipated Boker Plus Tom Krein Pocket Bowie is finally finding it’s way to dealer shelves. This knife is the result of a collaboration between Boker and knife maker Tom Krein. Krein has a reputation for great handles and scary sharp edges. This Boker Plus Pocket Bowie looks like it lives up to that reputation.

It features a 2 1/2″ blade crafted from 440C steel. The overall length is 4 3/4″. This really is a Pocket Bowie. It wears black G-10 scales with white spacers on its nicely shaped handle. The Pocket Bowie comes with an excellent looking kydex sheath all for a street price that is under $30!

This is going to be one hot seller.

Patch Collecting: ESEE Izula Patch

The original ESEE Izula is a great knife and it has been a runaway success. It makes sense that such a great knife should also get a great patch!

This one is available exclusively from EM Gear.

Just Announced: The Izula-II from ESEE Knives

 

ESEE Knives introduced a new version of their excellent Izula. The Izula-II will have essentially the same blade as the original Izula but it will feature a handle that is 1/2″ longer. It will come with removeable, full coverage canvas micarta scales. I have found the micarta scales on the original Izula to be a must-have.

Artist renderings of the Izula-II. The product version may vary slightly.

The Izula II should be on dealer shelves in 6-8 weeks. You can read more about the Izula-II on the ESEE Knives Forum at Bladeforums.

Patch Collecting: RAT Pack Patch

The folks at ESEE Knives started the RAT Pack as a way to promote participation in their forum. It has grown into an excellent resource for survival related topics and a fun place to hang out. Having cool patches doesn’t hurt either.

The RAT Pack Patch is available to RAT Pack members from Double Barrel Sheaths.

ESEE Pack Kit – A Knife Based Survival Pouch

Adding a pouch to a knife sheath is nothing new. Leave it to the survival savvy minds at ESEE Knives to add a knife sheath to a pouch! The ESEE Pack Kit is basically a small, well thought out organizer bag that allows you to carry essential survival gear. The unique feature is that the sheaths that come with ESEE Knives can be integrated into the pouch.

The ESEE Pack Kit is the second generation of this concept. This new version incorporates several improvements that were suggested by ESEE Knife users and still manages to cost less than the original. It will come in two sizes and multiple colors. It can be carried via a shoulder strap, on your belt, or by attaching it to your MOLLE/PALs gear.

This looks like just the thing for a minimalist survival kit.

Bargain Bokers – VoxKnives Gnome and Rhino

Boker has slated a ton of excellent looking collaboration knives to be released in 2010. Two of the more interesting knives (at least to me) are the VoxKnives designed Gnome and Rhino. VoxKnives is run by Jesper Voxnaes in Denmark. Jesper has a very recognizable style and tends to create very utilitarian designs.

The Gnome is a small neck knife. It has a small 2 finger grip and comes with a kydex neck sheath. It would make a great little EDC (every day carry) knife or a back up to a larger knife. It features a 12C27 blade, full tang construction, and green canvas micarta scales with red spacers. I have seen street prices on these as low as $16!

The Rhino is larger than the Gnome but still a very compact knife. It is designed more as an outdoors knife than an EDC. It also features a 12C27 blade and full tang construction. The handle slabs are black micarta with red liners. Street price is $40-$45.

Both of these designs are now at retailers. I am not sure how Boker does it, but these are a great value.

The ESEE RAT Pack

ESEE Knives (formerly RAT Cutlery) maintains a forum on BladeForums that is an excellent source for survival information, product information, and fellowship with good people from across the world. Mike and Jeff (the owners of ESEE) formed the “RAT Pack” to encourage people to contribute meaningful content to the forum. RAT Pack members must have 25 meaningful posts in the forum and are eligible to take part in the many giveaways that are offered on the forum. Recently, my RAT Pack number was drawn in a random giveaway and I am now the proud owner of a brand new RC-3MIL!

Readers of Jerking the Trigger will know that I mention ESEE Knives fairly regularly on this blog. It is just this sort of generosity, community, and access to the owners that draws me to ESEE. They make straight forward, hard working knives that are functional and backed by the best warranty in the business (many claim this, but in ESEE’s case it is true).
