I would have joined this drop in a second except the price is no bargain.
Is it really so that if I dont add the sheath, it will only be the knife? If so, why would anyone buy without the sheath? Would I carry it around in my hand all day..? If massdrop could clarify it would be appreciated.

Some people will get a custom sheath so they don't need the added expense. That said you can pick this up for less than list price here with or without sheath pretty much anywhere that sells knives online. unless you live outside the US (with international shipping, who knows?)

Personally, I'd end up making a sheath for this beastly thing regardless, especially if the alternative is an $80 piece of Kydex. That said, still not a great deal for this blade, and if I'm honest I'd rather get the ESEE 6.
Was thinking wow great deal until I saw +$80 for the sheath. Am I missing something? You can buy this all day with sheath for $160. Not from shady Amazon resellers but bladehq and the like. Unless international skipping is absolutely insane to where you live, this is a terrible deal.

Yep, I just read through it and thought the same exact thing. Get your shit together Massdrop.
is the price 119.99 or 129.99??

$129.99 if 5 people buy in, $124.99 if 10 people commit.
I have this exact knife in my wife's SUV for road trips and emergencies. This knife is a beast. ESEE is a stand up company with a no questions asked lifetime warranty. The price? Disappointing.

You can get several of these options with the sheath in the $140s and delivered by Friday...

Jonasheinemanp + I was comparing the Massdrop price of $119.99 + $80 sheath (totaling $199.99) for knife & sheath to the current price at Amazon of just over $140.00 for the same knife & sheath.

Ah, I see - okay, well it's hard to argue with math. Thanks for clarifying my clarification, I didn't understand the sheath was included in one but not the other. If it's a legit seller, seems like a great price.
I received it today without kydex sheath!!

I see a lot of hate for the 5 rolling around here. So I want to give my $.02. I carry the ESEE 5 six days a week. I wouldn't trade it for any other fixed blade. I wouldn't sell it for twice its worth. I absolutely love my 5. I work in the reclaimed wood business and the ESEE 5 doesn't give a second though to anything I ask of it. Pry a nail - sure. Mark a beam for a cut - no problem. Baton a 2x4 - piece of cake. Chop a 1x4 - hell yeah. Limbing small branches - you bet.
Not once has my ESEE 5 let me down.

Do you have the plain edge version?
I only have the 4, but when I was researching what esee model to buy I considered the 5 and 6. If I had to choose it would be the 6 due to its versatility as it was designed for bushcraft, camping, etc. The 5 is built for situations where you have to hack your way out of a downed aircraft. Which doesn't happen often in my world. Hiking yes.
Least that's how I understood it. When the esee 4 comes out at a fair price I highly recommend it. So far it outperforms my bigger knives. But then if I need to chop stuff I use my ax.

All of everything said in this post is right, in my opinion. Yes.
I picked this up in brand new condition with a lanyard and sheath for $20 at a pawn shop...

Anything could happen. But with the quality and the fact that pawnshops never know what they have I doubt it. I will see if there are even fakes out there and let you know. I mean, I'm carrying a genuine 940-1 that I got for $100. The only ones I'm ever concerned about when I find them are Spydercos because there are a lot of fakes available of those online. You can always tell by the action whether those are fake though.
Well, I can't find any clones available anywhere. Typically they have to be a pretty popular knife to be cloned and I just can't see this knife having a high enough demand. I feel pretty confident it's legit.
I've been waiting for this exact knife to come on Massdrop. Apparently it was NOT worth the wait. I can get the exact same knife on amazon cheaper with free 2 day shipping! WTF
Remember a knife show "Knives Live TV" one night ESEE 6 $90 .oo $5.oo flat rate shipping. hit that baby like flies on a cow patti....? OK ya got me no fire starter spindle hole, bulkier, heavier, not the same color. Its prices like this I'm hoping MassDrop would come out with...oh yea

What choo talking bout Willis?

Rhodes6858 was watching a knife show on TV one night, whilst thinking of Tyra Banks, and low and behold an Esee 6 was for sale for the low price of $90.00 dollars. Rhodes6858 then purchased the item with haste but was disappointed by it's features as it is not firestarter friendly. Rhodes6858 thinks that Massderp needs to host the knife he now has, which is the Esee 6, at a discounted rate because he loves it.
I would love to see them come out with an ESEE-4 with the shaped handle they designed for the -5
Sheath for $80. Seems reasonable....

Was just thinking the same thing. I need two buy two sheaths just to be safe.
ThisGuy7
You can get knife and sheath for $160 on amazon or knife only for $124
The Kydex sheath is $ 80 ?! Am I missing something?
toneoneone
No, on the contrary, you apparently HAVE some common sense! $80 for that piece of plastic is ridiculous.
Nice knife, though.

I've stayed away from leather and kydex sheaths when I'm outdoors as I heard they don't do too well in sandy, gritty, or wet environments. Wonderful stuff otherwise. When I got my esee 4 I was disappointed with the plastic sheath, but found it surprisingly versatile in its carry configuration and does what it is supposed to do. The only addition I made was to get some molle backing. But etsy has some cool kydex sheaths though.
I own the ESEE Model 4. It was well worth the cost.
Fr0st1cus
Ditto. Weight, intended use, sheath, and price considerations all directed me to that decision.
I would buy another 4 if it had the 5 handle as mentioned above, though. ESEE 4.5?
No orange option bummer... was just looking at these with some orange flair.

You also need to learn how to use a knife well. Just having a good knife will not suddenly make you prepared for emergencies.
jodasm
Pretty much.
It's a quarter-inch thick, good steel and good construction.
You'll probably break before it does.
EDIT: Agree the 4 is a better value and wiser purchase option. Unless you're a Space Marine or something.
