When Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin wanted to start a company to market their field tested knife designs, they began RAT Cutlery. After a couple years of doing business, they changed their name to ESEE Knives. The name, pronounced "S-Cee," is an acronym for Escuela de Supervivencia, Escape and Evasion and accurately refelects the company’s commitment to producing knives designed for survival and military/law enforcement use.
If you are looking for a no-nonsense knife, ESEE Knives are a great choice. These knives are made to be used as hunting knives, survival knives, camping knives, tactical knives or any way you might need to use it.
Since 1997, Randall's Adventure & Training has designed no-nonsense, affordable field knives specifically for military, law-enforcement, and special-operations professionals. Many ESEE/RAT knives now serve in the combat zones of Iraq, Afghanistan and other remote locales. ESEE Knives is also is setting the standard with local, state and federal law-enforcement officers for high-performance, compact fixed-blade knives with multiple carry options. Survival experts around the world have endorsed their no nonsense kives as survival knives they would stake their lives on.
All ESEE Knives are proudly made in the USA. They have said, "We believe the men and women of the USA can still make the best product at a competitive price... a price the average person can afford. We believe that an objective, intelligent person can design a product that is reliable, practical and affordable and that it can be produced through skill and hard work on our own shores and then sold to the user."
What's more, ESEE’s warranty is second to none: "If you screw it up, break it, or cut it in two with a cutting torch, send it back and we'll replace it. Warranty is transferable. In other words, we warranty the knife no matter how many times it's been traded, sold or given away. We don't ask for a sales receipt, date of purchase or where you bought the knife -- no fine print and no hassles."
In a recent interview with Jeff Randall, he told us plainly, "We make tools." When you hold an ESEE knife, you will know you have a working tool in your hand. Like every good tool you own, when it comes down to it, this tool will do its job.
That definitely works for us, and we're confident that whether you think of these as RAT Cutlery or ESEE Knives, they will work for you.
