    Anyone have one if these. I wanted something smaller than the Izula and this seemed like a logical choice.

    The reviews have been favorable, with some concerns about the pricing.

    I got into small knives for awhile but in the end..... too small for my taste. That being said, I have never heard a bad thing about ESEE knives, They make great tools.

    +1 . I don't have one, but this knife is one of those that seems to have reach 'classic' status in terms of its overall positive impression on edc communities, at least from what I read.

    L'chaim!

    It arrived. I'll post pics in the next day or two. It might be a bit too small for my hands, but we'll see.

    Funny, I looked at one today at a local store. It seemed a little overpriced for what it is; given the size, steel, & lack of handle material. But it seems to have a very favorable opinion. Tell us what you think.

    Sorry, haven't had the time to post pics. I will be returning this. I just can't justify the price and it feels too small in my hands.

    I've got a couple of small knives, but in the end I've found that I have little to no use for them.

    I have one, sans scales.

    It has been my only EDC knife for a couple of years now. I bought it after I tried a CRKT Bita as and EDC Fixed Blade. I don't think i'll go to a folding knife again.

    It is way more useful than the size would suggest. I even use it while on camping/hunting/fishing trips, although there's an ESEE 6 in my pack when doing so.

    Comfortwise, I don't mind it missing the scales, I havent tried them though. I much prefer the flat profile inside the pocket. The knife and sheath conceals very well when carrying tip up inside the pocket. Although the stock clip is huge and pretty much impossible to hide. The clip also has a sharp edge good for scratching your vehicle's door when on a tight parking spot lol.

    I highly recommend it, as I do with all ESEE Knives.

    It feels like a toy to me, way too small. It's in a drawer somewhere.
