Outdoor & Survival Knife Essentials

Cold Steel S35VN Ultimate Hunter

Back in September, we showcased Lynn Thompson’s new collaborative lockback design with Andrew Demko – the Ultimate Hunter. Now, we have a more discreet black G10 variation to go alongside their highly visible orange model. Both come equipped with premium S35VN steel and Cold Steel’s legendarily strong Tri-Ad Lock, making them some of the most durable folding outdoorsmen knives we’ve seen recently.

With over 1,800 pages containing more than 700 brands, the 2019 KnifeCenter Printed Catalog is the ultimate reference for all the greatest cutlery and accessories, offering thousands of products that haven’t even made it on to our website yet.

 

Customers have time and again told us that this is the best thing we sell. You’ll get hours of enjoyment as you leaf through our sections on the hottest knife brands, including Spyderco, CRKT, Cold Steel, Zero Tolerance, Kershaw, and hundreds more. And there are more than just knives. From one piece multi-tools to sharpeners, camping and survival gear, shaving supplies, and more, it is all here in this definitive guide that no enthusiast should be without.

The best part about this catalog is the element of discovery. While shopping on the web is direct and efficient, it is often hard to stumble upon new and exciting things. With every turn of these pages, you’ll find awesome gear that you didn’t even know you wanted.

From Swiss Army Knives to machetes to kitchen gear, give us a call or visit our website for availability and the latest prices, which come in significantly lower than the full retail prices listed in the catalog.

Nowhere else will you find as many knives, accessories, and cool gear all collected into one, easy to read place.

Top Five Best ESEE Knives

Try this: whip out your phone and text the biggest outdoor and survival knife enthusiast you know and ask them this – “who makes the best survival knives in the business?” Chances are, they’re going to tell you that ESEE ranks pretty high (if not the highest). Since 1997, Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin have been changing the game when it comes to the wilderness industry. Their goal is to offer realistic tools that are designed for people that are going to use and abuse them, which is why their brand has been so successful. Their ‘no questions asked’ warranty doesn’t hurt, either – you’re essentially covered for everything but rust. If you break it, they will replace it.  

Even in the company’s philosophy, it clearly states that one of the most important aspects of the business is that ESEE won’t provide a piece of gear that hasn’t been tested in the real world. How seriously do they take that mission? Considering that ESEE’s founders also run an adventure and training company that regularly does jungle survival courses in the Peruvian Amazon, we’d say – very. Anyone who regularly handles outdoor knives knows the power of 1095 carbon, and ESEE is able to get more out of that steel than any other production knife company thanks to their famous heat treatment.    

You know the drill by now – as the leading cutlery retailer, we’re overqualified to cherry-pick the best ESEE knives for you. Let’s begin with the knife that started it all…

 

ESEE-3

 

Best Application

General purpose field and utility knife that’s perfect for bug-out bags or survival kits

Why We Love It

What the ESEE 3 lacks in size, it more than makes up for in strength. It’s the very first knife that Jeff and Mike debuted at ESEE, essentially making it their flagship knife. The National Tactical Officers Association gave it a 4.77 out of 5, cementing its reputation as a favorite with law enforcement and military teams.

Why You’ll Love It

Like we said before, you’re going to get more out of that 1095 carbon steel than you will from any other knife company. This knife is comfortable and easy to carry thanks to its size and versatile sheath. Because this is such a popular knife model, we have over 40 iterations of the ESEE 3. From combo blades to Venom Green finishes to highly visible orange scales, we can pretty much guarantee there’s a model out there for even the most eccentric knife user.
