We do not sell our knives direct to the public since we
don't compete with our dealer market. Please visit our
dealer page to learn where you can buy.
The edges on all of our knives are applied by hand. We do
our best to maintain a 20 degree (per side) edge angle but due to the hand
application, they may vary slightly. We suggest using a Spyderco Sharpmaker
for general edge maintenance or a flat diamond hone.

Our carbon steel knives are made from high carbon 1095
steel, and while 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for
hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for - especially on
the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user's
responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We
suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH.
Please refer to the sheath instruction sheets found on
our web site. Each knife listed has an instruction sheet at the bottom of
the web page.
Randall's Adventure & Training manufactures and fully
guarantees ESEE Knives and all knives previously marketed under the RAT
Cutlery brand name (RC-3, RC-4, RC-5, RC-6). While Randall's Adventure &
Training was the first company to ever use RAT as its brand name in fixed
blade knives, we decided to change our knife company name to ESEE Knives in
February 2010 due to confusion in the marketplace with other companies
marketing under the RAT name). This was simply a name change. Nothing else
has changed in the design, manufacture or quality of our knives. Randall's
Adventure & Training does not manufacture or offer a warranty on any knife
made by Ontario Knife Company under the Ontario RAT branding (RAT-3, RAT-5,
RAT-7. RTAK, TAK, Model 1 Folder and Model II Folder). The Ontario RAT
knives were designed by Randall's Adventure & Training but are manufactured
by Ontario Knife Company. Find more information about all of our designs on
our History page.
