New From ESEE: IZULA-II Neck Knife

IZULA II

ESEE’s Izula II is billed as a neck knife, but its full-size Micarta scales and and multiposition molded sheath it make it much more than that. Neck or no neck, it could be a great general purpose hunting/survival knife within the limitations of its size.The US-made Izula II is a modified ESEE Izula with a longer handle and linen Micarta scales. It’s only 6.75″ long overall, and it’s just as suitable for belt or survival-kit duty as it is for ‘larynx carry.’

It’s got a 2.88″ deep drop-point blade, and it’s made from .165″-thick 1095 carbon steel with a corrosion-resistant powder coat. Prices range from $70 to $85, depending on accessories.

    I have been looking for a neck knife for a long time. This model is one I looked at and dismissed because of the high price for what you get. For $80 I expect more than 1095 carbon steel in a less than 3″ blade. I like the design, but the price is just out of line. The White River Knives Backpacker is a 3.25″ blade in S30V for $90. I’m looking at: Cold Steel 53NBS Bowie Spike 4″ for $24, Condor Tool & Knife Bushbuddy 3 13/16″ for $19, and Benchmark Backpacker 2.8″ for $17. Anybody care to make a recommendation or comment on any of these models?

    How is this “new from ESEE”? These have been out for at least a couple years now.
