I noticed that also. It seems very similar to the Esee Izula but much cheaper.

Vixx, you are the guru here on Esee Blades. Can share with us your view?

It's a hybrid between becker's necker blade and izula's handle.. some guy did a welded mod and they officially made it happen..

Between this kabar and esee, they're both great in real world usage.
There's many beckers versus esee reviews.. but personally, I prefer the rowen stuff than kabar..

Thks Vixx.

ViIx has one. Btw i think the handle is hollowed out. pretty cool knife.

Ya lor...I also find it si beh cool leh. Plus I quite like the pry pommel.

For fixed blades, I prefer those that are sort of full tang.
I have one which is some made in Japan no name blade I used for fishing. The knife is one whole piece of metal with wooden handle riveted at the side.
Dam durable, no matter how I throw and misuse it. Plus it is only RM20.
Hahahaha...

Yup, it has a skeletonised tang. it looks cool no doubt.. but I haven't used it extensively cos it's heavier (and thicker) than an izula.. it fits better than an izula I but probablu not the II. I say that because I got the blackjack necker with handle scales which has a similar handle design as the izula II but the length is same as the izula I. I like that handle style better so I'm probably going for the II.

kinda like the options you get with the hest though, the many attachment holes makes a great field tool, not just as a knife.. For around 90 bucks USD, it's quite worth it.

Yea i tied the paracord on the izula by myself. The Esee Eskabar is really cheap and it's warrantied by Esee =D
But i prefer the izula coz it is much more compact and easier to carry. Looks cuter too haha! Actually i was having touble in deciding between the Hest fixed blade and izula, but so far no regrets.

Knives

We collect knives not bcos we are Violent,
Rather bcos we view knives as pieces of Art In Silence.

We see knives not as weapon but rather a Tool,
Only those who misuse knives to stab others are Cowardly Fools.

Knives only kills when in the hands of those who Kills,
Knives in a Collector's hands are appreciated Art made with Skills.

Alot of cheap deals there. Some of them like too cheap to be true. Plus looking at the reviews, won't dare to buy any knives there.

Becareful.
