ESEE / Rowen Bushcraft Experience

ESEE / Rowen Experience

This is the ultimate ESEE/Rowen experience. Day one will be a guided tour of the Rowen Manufacturing facility in Idaho Falls, Idaho where ESEE Knives are made. After the tour you will be able to choose a knife and assemble it yourself at the factory. After your knife is complete, the Rowen and ESEE team will autograph the box so you have a lasting memory of this experience. Then it’s off to the mountains for 3 days of camping and learning bushcraft / survival skills with ESEE/RAT instructors.

  2. I am fascinated with the ESEE group, you guys take pride in the tools you make and care about sharing your outdoor knowledge with anyone that has the interest regarles oh economic status, experience or backgroud. The fact that you name your blades with name of Latin origins and travel to Peru to gain the knowledge to perfectionate your products reflects the commitment to us your loyal followers. One of the special item I have is a junglas with my name edged in the blade (it's my show off item) and I have told my son to forever keep it and not to get rid of it if at a point my life is gone (it's our keeper!). I proudly have a ESSE decal in the back window of my SUV. So I hope I'm selected to receive your 4 of July give away. My word...I will keep it and pass it to my son. Thank you for what you guys do.
