The ESEE Izula is inspired by an ant found in the rainforests of Peru. The locals call it the isula ant, but we know it better as the bullet ant. Named after an excruciating sting that some people say is akin to getting shot, the bullet ant is mean and aggressive but also tough and adaptable.
These traits perfectly translate into one of the most beloved survival tools around. The blade of this iteration of the ESEE Izula is 2.63 inches and made from 1095 carbon steel. It has a black textured powder coat finish that reduces the glare of the knife and adds an extra layer of corrosion resistance. An outline of its namesake is imprinted on the blade to remind you of the knife's capabilities.
At an overall length of 6.25 inches, the knife comes in at a lightweight 2 ounces without the sheath. That doesn't mean this USA-made knife can't outperform all your other massive survival knives though.
The skeletonized handle features a carabiner hole in the pommel and comes without all the bells and whistles. This allows for customizability, including adding handle scales of your choosing or wrapping it with paracord.
A molded sheath makes carrying this small but aggressive knife effortless, making it a great knife for survival or concealed carry.
