In this episode, The Late Boy Scout interviews Patrick from ESEE Knives at the SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas. Patrick starts by talking about the 3 HM and the 4 HM knives, which they had at Blade Show last year, but some people still aren’t familiar with them. For these knives, they thickened the scale around them and made them a little more contoured.
At Shot Show, ESEE decided to showcase their new 6 blade with the rounded contoured scales. According to the interviewer, it’s nice and comfortable to hold and it feels natural in the hand. Additionally, it’s not fatiguing for long use, which means it can be used for extended periods of time.
The 3 HM and the 4 HM are available now and the 6 HM should be shipped in about two months. According to Patrick, HM stands for “Handle Modification”. That is to say, they look like completely redesigned knives.
They also produced a new cleaver for Shot Show. It’s basically a meat cleaver, but you can also use it for processing firewood. A friend of ESEE’s designed it and they produced it for him. It’s a little heavy, but it can handle anything that needs to be chopped. Their knives are manufactured at Idaho Falls. They are very comfortable knives that are highly functional, and are great for long hard work.
ESEE wants to stay true to their philosophy of treating customers with respect, keeping their prices fair, providing the best in quality, and never teaching a skill or providing a piece of gear that hasn’t been tested in the real world. In the factory knives industry, as well as survival gear and wilderness training, ESEE (also known as Randall’s Adventure & Training) boasts about doing their best to reflect their hard-earned experience in the production of what some deem the world’s best knives, gear, and training.
