ESEE for me as well.  I've killed two wild pigs with my ESEE 4 and I tagged my gator with it as well.  ESEE makes great products.


Esee makes good fixed blades, and are relatively affordable considering they are 1095 carbon steel.  I’ve carried an Izula in a kydex sheath behind my belt buckle for several years, and have the 4 in my get home bag.
They make a variety of designs, I’m sure one should suit your needs.

    I know this a bit older thread but thought I would add my fixed blade I really like. It has a really flexible scabbard that you can position pretty much anyway you want as well it hold the knife secure until needed. It is definitely a defensive knife not an everyday use design.

    I have my Spyderco Damascus for that. The fixed blade model is another Spyderco product called The Ronin II. Razor sharp and definitely not something you would want coming at you. In my latest CCW class in Tucson the instructor was a martial arts specialist as well as a knife person.

    He made some sobering statements about knife vs. gunshot survivability percentages that were pretty educational and surprising as well. He was amazing with his knife skills as he showed us in class. He was like a magician in the speed he could draw and inflict damage, faster than another person could draw their carry weapon. I have a whole new respect for defensive knives when the person is proficient with them.

    Nice.  That style blade would be a Wharncliffe in a pocket knife but in something that size it is more akin to a seaxx.  Looks like a reverse grip would be comfortable as well.

    When I was in the USAF there was a how to disarm someone with a knife demonstration. A very smug martial arts expert got his butt served up by an 18 year old kid from Chicago. I have a healthy respect for anyone that knows how to use a blade.

    If I were going to carry a fixed blade for defense it would be a CKRT Bear Claw sharp tip or a pair of them.
