Hey everyone! I’m new to the forum (and forums in general), so bear with me as I try to figure this out ! I first heard about ESEE knives when I started learning about survival. The name ESEE would come up over and over as a respected survival knife. So I knew the name long before I owned one! The first ESEE I bought was for a friend; we were both getting into backpacking at the time. Fast forward a bit and I was able to take SRT class in 2018 at the Farm. Remains one of the best experiences of my life. I want to be SAR in the future. My alumni knife is an ESEE3. I also own a PR4 now, and it is my go-to fire knife. S/o to Jeff, Shane, Casey, Kevin, Mike, Jason, and everyone else who taught me and made that class fun and unforgettable!
