Okay, to summarize, I should be okay with:
1. ESEE flat profile G10 or micarta; avoid ESEE G10 3D.
2. TKC G10 or micarta are good to go.
To be clear, ESEE does not offer their 3D scales for sale separately at this time. You can buy them only on certain models of their knives. IIRC, ESEE has stated that they may offer these scales for sale in the future.

Some of these 3D scales are excellent- for instance, here's a pair of them in canvas micarta on this beast of a knife, an ESEE-5. These particular scales feel fantastic in the hand, and part of it has to do with the surface texture, which is a world of difference from the glass-slick 3D scales on the S35VN version of the ESEE-3. On my copy of that knife, I installed a set of the TKC G-10 scales in black. Looks great, feels great, and very secure in the hand.



That is a great looking knife. Can it be purchased just like that, same grips, color...?

I thought it was for tying through the rivet holes to make a belt loop, or to PALS webbing.

I would think you'd put it on your wrist so you don't lose the knife when in use, be it peeling an apple or against a threat, you know slippery hands, wet work...

That ESEE-5 seems like a good deal. That's about what I paid a few years ago, and prices seem to have jumped on knives recently.

Thanks. The description matches yours but the picture looks like different grips. I guess it’s just the wrong picture??

No, that's the same knife. The color rendition of my photo is off a bit, but not by much. It may be that some examples of this model have blonde grips, but I think what you're likely to get is one that looks like mine.

Almost 90 days to Christmas, so I went to Knife Center's website. The long desired Cold Steel SRK in CPM-3V was in stock; ordered one! It was about $6 less than my earlier San Mai blade SRK purchase.

I remember when Cold Steel introduced the SRK in the 1980s. It's surprising, with all the knives I've owned, that I never gotten around to one of those. I'd like to see this 3V version put through its paces.

ruger357, did you get your ESEE-5?

The one knife that I really like that fits in this thread is one of the Swamp Rat knives. Don't know which one as I think I bought it here many years ago. Is the perfect size. Seems really well built. I really do not know much about them. But have always felt it was a really good fixed blade knife.

I found this on YouTube; mine will not be Italian made as this reviewer has. Description on the site when ordering said made in Taiwan. Should help, Para.

Just saw this. As you probably saw in the other thread, I did get my esee5 and I’ll get a picture up hopefully tomorrow. Love it.
