More info please!!
Just picked up an orange bladed 5 in like new condition with sheath. Can't wait to get it and mod the heck out of it. Going to etch it, remove the paint, give it a grapefruit patina, dye the scales black, put a very cool lanyard on it and go out and beat up some dead wood with it. Fun!!!!!
Beat the snot out of it, and it'll ask for more.
I’m really not sure why I sold mine years ago. Man that 5 was a fat wood stump buster.
Same with me. Hence I'm picking up this one.
Yeah, it's an awesome blade for sure. I can't imagine letting mine go, and she is WELL used. I do want to pick up a 6 to go with my 5, PR4 and CR2.5

That looks sweet. What wood is that?
It is Bocote... Search tmil2009 on Ebay. He is from Boutiful, Utah
I repost a pic of my E-5 after I gave it to a very good craftman to restore the engraving which desappear when I removed the coating (on blade only to prevent the tang to rust). I add a mustard patina to perfect it
Mine ~ the day of arrival, the first day of my addiction. Sadly, it’s not so “pretty” anymore ~ but that’s a great thing!
They always look better used.
Nice photo. Glad it doesn't look like that any longer. That means it's used, as it should be, and that makes it a happy knife!
That's for sure!

My 5 today here in England.
This knife was offered up to me on another forum. It is within 1 production number of my first RAT 5. I had to have it. Just showed up today. #2059
Nice score,can't be many of those around,the 5 was my first ESSE
That’s what I thought when I saw it. This knife has never seen the outside of the safe in its life.
Still has the factory grind.
The ESEE 5 gets a bad rap from most, but I don’t know how the vast majority can not like this knife, say it’s too thick, but turn around and buy a small camping axe cut out of the same .25” stock as this knife then say it’s the greatest thing ever made.
People are weird.
