    As I continue to use my ESEE 3 with the uncoated blade, it begins to take on some patina.

    It occurs to me just how capable these 3s are.
    Make wood shavings?
    Sure.

    Slice veggies?
    You bet!

    Campfire to kitchen, just a well rounded cutting tool.

    I've noticed with the patina developing. It mostly disappears with a light coating of coconut oil. I use coconut because it is edible, it is anti-microbial, and it doesn't go rancid easily.

    I also use Walnut oil. Mineral oil will work.

    A trick I learned on another forum.
    Take one of those small sponges with the plastic scrubber on the back side. cut it in half, and soak it with some coconut oil.

    Place it in a small plastic bag. That way you can have both a scrubber if you need it and readily accessible oil for your blade.

    I’ve seen an esee take down a small tree but that has to be a new record for a 3! Stay safe out there and have fun with that thing.

    Gonna be taking my girl on her first overnighter in the hammocks tonight boys! She is bringing a mora 511 and I’m bringing my 3hm as my only foxed blade. I’ll have that and my Victorinox fieldmaster.

    I’ve never been more confident about a thin, sub 4 inch knife. I usually bring a Garberg and a 511.
    I’ll post pics tomorrow once I’m home

    Sorry guys. Did 13.1 miles the first day and 4.5 the second day. So didn’t get much knife time. But here’s a pic for fun.

    Got a 3 on the way from knifeworks. I only planned on getting the esee fire kit and a clip plate for the wife’s izula. I couldn’t resist checking out the esee close out section, got a 3 for a steal. I’ll see how I like it compared to the 4, I might have to get the s35vn version.
