One item that every survivalist must have in their inventory of survival gear is a survival knife, this review should convince you that the ESSE-4 Survival Knife should be the knife you consider. Unlike most items in a survivalist pack, the survival knife plays many different roles while in the field, including the following list:

  •  Cutting/Slicing
  • Digging
  • Splitting
  • Self-Defense
  • First Aid Tool
  • Food Prep
  • Shelter Building
  • Fire Making
  • Hunting Weapon
  • Prying Tool
  • Signaling
  • Hammering
  • Make-Shift Screwdriver

When you take into consideration the amount of abuse a survival knife endures, one should choose the best quality and strongest made survival knife that fits your budget. For this reason we at apocalypse survival school have chosen the ESSE-4 Survival Knife as our choice.

A closer look at the Esse-4 Survival Knife.

Blade:

The Esse-4 blade and tang (the part of the steel that is contained inside the handle) is made of high quality 1095 carbon steel. 1095 carbon makes this blade one of the strongest and durable survival knifes on the market, this is especially important in situations when using your knife as a splitting, prying or digging tool. The carbon 1095 steel blade will hold a razor sharp edge longer than most if not all its competition, especially if they have a lower rated steel.  The blade on the ESSE-4 measures in at 4.5 inches, which is a nice size in my opinion. A 4-5 inch blade is not to small and not too large for most practical uses. The blade comes from the factory razor sharp and is non serrated and black coated. The coating can cause some resistance while chopping through wood, but does combat rust extremely well.

Tang:

The tang of the blade is the portion of the steel that extends up into the handle. The ESSE-4 has a full tang which means that the steel extends fully into the handle. Having a full tang increases the strength of the blade tremendously, and also allows the owner to wrap the tang with material such as para cord if the handle needs to be replaced due to damage. See picture below for an example of a tang that has been wrapped in paracord.

Handle:

The handle on the ESSE-4 is made of micarta which is very durable and used by most quality knife manufactures. The handle may seem a little small at first and takes some getting used to, but once you get used to the feel it becomes very comfortable and natural feeling.

Sheath:

The ESSE-4 comes with an ambidextrous kydex sheath, which is extremely durable.  The kydex sheath is of high quality and different mounting options can be added such as tek-loks and kydex drop loops if needed. The ESSE-4 sheath also has MOLLE locks/paracord for attachment, making the included sheath well rounded and fit for survivability.

Overall:

ESSE makes quality survival knives and the ESSE-4 is a great example why the company has such a great reputation for quality and durability. The ESSE-4 is our knife of choice and will remain a crucial part of our survival gear. Personally this is one piece of survival gear that NEEDS to be made of quality materials and designed to stand up to rugged use. When you consider the important role a survival knife plays in keeping you or your family alive, the ESSE-4 is the blade of choice.
