I have been hooked on survival knives lately. Like, all I think about in my spare time. I have pocket knives, a few anyway, but no real survivor type knife. I am not so looking for a "Oops I got lost in the woods, I am glad I have my survival knife on me". I am more looking for the "I am going out for a weekend outing on foot, and I am glad I have my survival knife." Been looking at: Ka-Bar BK7, Esee 3 and 4, SOG Seal pup, and other various ones. Been thinking that I would get the Esee 3, in the theory that if I like it and feel I need something bigger maybe go with the BK7 , or the Esee 6. So, I am curious about what people think about the Esee 3. I have even considered using it as my EDC blade, but without having a store around that caries them, I have not handled one and have no idea how well that would work. The steel may be to think for that, I don't know. Any advice may help.
