I'm looking for a good camping/survival knife, and am wondering what you all think of these two models? It will most likely just sit in my dresser until I die, and then be given away by my wife, but I've got $100 at Cabelas and I'm looking for a way to spend it Big Grin

If you get the ESEE, do not go to Cabelas. I bought mine at Knifeworks. Save the Cabelas $100 for something else.

I want to say Cabelas has them for $150 and they were $90 at Knifeworks.

I have an ESEE 3 and an Isula 2 for 5 years now, love them both, used on a ranch everyday, easy to sharpen, damn near indestructable, got both at knifeworks. Can’t go wrong with an ESEE.

I personally think the ESEE5 is too big and heavy for an all around camp/survival knife.
I'd go with an ESEE4 or even the LaserStrike over the 5 any day.

I have an ESEE 6 on a MOLLE attached to my pack. I use it for a lot of hacking.

I would pass on both.

There are better ways to blow 100 at cabelas.

If its a good outdoors knife you want, there are better options then both of those, especially if you add a few more dollars.
