For those looking for the performance of an ESEE fixed blade knife but want something more traditional in shape, the brand offers the ESEE-3HM. The HM in its moniker stands for “handle modification,” which means this model does away with the forward finger choil of the regular ESEE-3 while beefing up the handle scales to be rounder and more substantial. This leads to a more comfortable and relaxed grip during use. It still retains the 3.625" long steel blade with a pronounced belly, giving you the same cutting and slicing performance that these knives are known for. The choice of 1095 High Carbon steel--the same steel used in some high-end professional cutlery--gives you a blade that sharpens easily and holds that edge for long. While not as rustproof as other more common EDC knife steel choices, it does come with a black powder coat treatment that enhances its durability and wear resistance. The Micarta handles provide an organic, old-school feel to this modern performer, and are removable should you want to install different scales. All of this translates into a solid choice for a fixed blade EDC knife. Get your ESEE-3HM with your choice of a leather or Kydex sheath at the link below.
