I have several Esee knives, but not that one.
The ones I have all seem to handle their required jobs without issue. Good gear.

I EDC a ESEE 3 fixed blade. G10 scales in a custom kydex horizontal carry sheath. Holds a good edge, not difficult to resharpen either. Nice and thin, not too heavy either.

My ESEE knife experience is limited but very positive.

It's an ESEE forged by Rowen. I don't have any experience with that model, but the ESEE/Rowen heritage generally means it's a long way from being junk.

They are a very value and i would echo what was said above. I edc mine but can use as a neck knife. My son has a smaller essee neck knife that he has for at least 4 years. Takes some hard use , easy to sharpen and holds an edge.

I keep one of their neck knives in the glove box. Great little knife. Since they are carbon steel (I forget what flavor), they take a wicked edge very easily.

Only downside is that the coating will wear pretty easily when in use. If you are the type that likes a pretty knife....Esee knives don't stay pretty for long.

The Esee knives aren't pretty like some of the custom blades out there but dang they're functional and that is what counts. Perhaps a bit expensive for a mundane carbon steel but they're well made and seem to be uniformly heat treated and tough.
