Now it’s safe to say I’m a knife guy, I’m a gun guy first and foremost but I appreciate a knife that serves a specific purpose. I have knives of all shapes and sizes, I’m not a collector per-say, I have the odd rare one tucked away,  but I use knives heavily in a focused fashion! I use knives for hunting, skinning, food prep, Bushcraft, fire-starting and a whole host of other tasks and I personally like to fine tune my selection based on a specific application. I have a couple of ESEE’s in regular use, the CR2.5 and PR4...

Right, starting off at the top, I need to provide context for my take on things.  I carry and use (unfortunately more often than I wish was the case) a gunshot wound (GSW) trauma kit as part of my day job. Oxygen and airways are never too far away but on my person I have Celox, chest seals, Israeli bandages, shears, various ancillaries and a number of different tourniquets.

But for now I'll cover one of the more pressing things that I again find myself sharing with others because....well to be honest....I needed one for myself first. I've been fortunate to have some top quality first aid and trauma training over the years, en gratis, because I didn't try too hard at school and landed myself in...

I've had an ESEE Izula from day one! I've reviewed them on here before and, in my humble opinion, they are without fault. An excellent, all round, no nonsense, simple EDC knife and moreover they are an ESEE product - no questions asked lifetime warranty and support from one of the best companies in the business! Amongst my various disadvantages, as you all know well, I live in the UK and as such certain bits of kit are far from straightforwards to get my hands on. I got the heads up from a buddy in the States that a very...
