Yea that’s the one Zelph, and it’s come in handy quite a few times.

I know of people who collect knives because they want to look big, bad, and gnarly. This isn’t a knife for them.

This is a finesse blade, it is made for people who want a very light (2.55oz), short (for precision tasks), and high quality knife (VG-10 steel, hex screw construction, with FRN scales). It is designed to fit securely in your hand, your thumb naturally conforms to the blade gimping. I guess the idea behind it is, if you have higher control of the blade the more deliberate your motions will be (they even designed a sheep’s hoof notch above the tip of the blade for added strength).

How many times have we been in the situation where we are holding fishing line, or packing string, and lost a knot, or tension in the line due to having to fiddle with our knives? With this knife, its utility is present as soon as it’s out of your pocket.

Also last but not least, you can use the wave to open your beer, whoopee! :DB:

Ridgerunner, Opps56: thanks for the response to my question, thats sure alot of uses!
I think the ESEE Izula will be my next knife purchase . It’s a small fixed knife, that’s made of hardened steel, and it’s designed to have paracord woven over the skeleton for added grip . That being said if you ever need cordage, you have a few meters at hand on your knife! The knife comes with a sheath too.
Also, it comes in ‘tactical’ pink ... images/IMG . :mrgreen: :lol:

Oh yeah, paracord wrap on the one link looks awesome. Looks non-slip weave in and!!!!
Where did the name IZULA® come from?

The locals in Peru call the meanest, nastiest ant of the jungle by the name "Isula". We know it as the Bullet Ant. The Bullet Ant is known to be independent, tough, light on its feet, and a real aggressive survivor - the IZULA knife is built the same way. This knife is designed to be the perfect lightweight survival kit or concealed carry knife.
I think that was the ant that did some chasing in one of the Indy Jones movies, the last one me thinks :mrgreen:
