ESEE ESEE-6 6.5 inches 3/16th inch 1095 cabon steel 57 20 degrees- frighteningly sharp ceramics and strops with 5 and 3.5 micron pastes, I do a lot of stropping with green paste day to day and so I get a convexing to this edge over time Top C survival/bushcraft, a good slicer in the kitchen
 
Authors Comments: all the ESEE knives are full flat-ground and the blades vary in thickness from the spine to the edge, so they are good slicers but hard to mount in the vise.
