ESEE Knives JG5 Fixed Blade

Jun 6, 2018

Category: Gear

Field & Stream writer, author of camping tome Woodcraft, and early conservationist, George Washington Sears, is one of history’s most important outdoorsman. And it is from his legendary knife, dubbed ‘Nessmuk’ (which also happens to be the man’s pen name), that ESSEE Knives has found inspiration for their new JG5 fixed blade.

But, while it shares a similar appearance to Sears’ old-timey skinner knife, this one is all modern – built with a black oxide-coated, full-tang, 1095 carbon steel blade mated to sculpted micarta handle scales. Made in the USA and measuring up at 9.625″ and 5.3 ounces overall, this bushcraft blade also comes with a brown leather belt loop sheath and will run you $115 a piece. And trust us, with the ESEE pedigree and the materials to back it up, that’s a steal.

Purchase: $115
