I have lengthy experience with the knives of Randall Adventure & Training, more commonly known as RAT knives.
One of the things I really liked on the old knife was the high carbon 1095 steel blades and micarta handles.
RAT heard this feedback and after the end of that licensing agreement in 2007, the group decided to produce a higher quality line of knives outside of the mass production capabilities of Ontario under their new ESEE brand. From my perspective, the new updated design resulted in high-end features and finish at a mid-level knife price. In my case, my beloved 4” TAK knife was claimed by my wife for her Bug Out Bag, so I needed a replacement. Although the newer blade has a little shorter edge to spine profile, which I like, it retains the same length and thickness.
The new ESEE-4 also now has a very secure flexible mounting and adjustable tension Kydex sheath. The MOLLE clips provide all the mounting flexibility I need, and they minimize weight over the added drop leg sheath extension.
The design and sheath upgrades were all well thought out and a big ergonomic improvement over the original design. For survival and general bushcraft and game cleaning, the drop point blade shape is one of the best designs. The blade now carries a thick coating of textured powdercoat instead of the phosphate finish on the old blades. First off, I support USA made products, and this knife and accessories are all 100% made in the USA. After testing my new knife, I have to note that I believe it is one of the top choices for a fixed blade survival knife for around $100. As you can see the 5 Rules of improvising are very basic, yet flexible and they will allow you to make the right and BEST decision to meet your needs.   Once these rules are learned and applied in everyday situations you will become very efficient at identifying the best solutions for any emergency situation if and when it should present itself.

I got this CZ527 7.62x39 couple of months ago after doing a lot of reveiwing through many websites and I am so happy of doing so. Always pay attention to the wind…Here is a quick tip on how to keep track of your wind direction while hunting from a tree stand or ground blind. Today’s fast-paced world does not allow many sportsmen the opportunity to buy their retrievers and properly prepare them for hunting. Whether you pay someone else to train your dog, or you do it yourself, training doesn’t end when the dog finishes its course. Humans tend to raise their voices when they are angry or frustrated, which is likely to happen at some point when training your gun dog. The common mistake of letting your puppy run around the yard or play with the kids prior to training could ultimately get him or you killed. The CZ-75 is my bug-out sidearm, due to its reliability, ease of operation, and the abundance of 9mm ammo on the market. The CZ-75 & CZ-85 are the closest thing to perfection you can find in a reliable combat handgun, I have several and have never found a need for any other handgun out there. Add an after market conversion kit to change it from a combat pistol to a survival gun (22 cal conversion).
From August 25th 2012 until over a year later, I slept and lived in my car in Los Angeles, California. Fast Food: This is a somewhat cheap and accessible option but I generally went for the foods that were in a grocery store as they were cheaper. Homeless shelters: Sometimes or much of the time homeless shelters give free food away as well. Additionally, grocery stores usually have a bakery or already-cooked foods section and these are somewhat affordable as well. Once you do find that place you have to make sure to do everything you can to not be noticed. Additional tip: Do not open your doors once you get to your spot or get out of your car at all. Keeping your hygiene good is absolutely key to sleeping and living in your car and staying unnoticed. There are a few options of where to hang out on your day off work or when you have free time. Car Fan: At night time I find it tough to sleep without some background noise, so this came in handy. Power Inverter: This is a device you can plug into your cigarette lighter and charge your laptop, cell phone, or any other electronic device as long it is a small enough wattage. Jumper Cables: Sometimes for a couple different reasons, I found that my car battery died and I needed a jump. Spare Keys Container: Having spare keys around are very important while sleeping in your car. Once I had my daughter’s vehicle sitting in my driveway off the street with a “For Sale” sign in the window.

The point is, a time will come during a SHTF, blackout, storm aftermath, or other event when we will absolutely have to stand our ground.
They definitely were not cutting edge knife technology, but for a wilderness survival knife, the design provides a highly durable and easily field maintainable edge which shoots sparks from a fire steel and is sharpened easily. The blades still use the low tech 1095 carbon steel that we all liked in a survival knife, but now you’ll notice higher grade sheathing, fit, finish, and attention to detail than they were able to offer previously.
For a survival knife I think this is an excellent compromise for the backpacker, soldier, outdoorsman, or survivalist.
Other changes are the larger index finger choil, which accommodates even very large fingers for detail cutting, and a new handle. In the land of $300 premium steel knives, the ESEE-4 with high end features but a basic steel is a very good value.
The Chicago Screws on the top two holes of the sheath can be tightened, moved, or loosened to adjust the sheath retention. The MOLLE clips can be used to mount to MOLLE straps on packs in multiple vertical and horizontal positions, as well as acting as belt loops. The ESEE IZULA and ESEE-4 I own both demonstrate an attention to the fact that a great knife needs a great sheath or it will simply be left at home.
The V-ground, 1095 blade with a 20 degree edge is very easy to maintain with even just a steel, and it takes a razor sharp edge quickly. The knife is big enough to accomplish even the largest tasks but is still small and light enough to carry daily.
Imagine if I don't have a magnesium fire starter with me, what materials I need to start a fire? The simplest solution is to hire a professional and put the dog through a fast-paced course to ready it for hunting season. I hadn’t thought about looking for an M9 holster, that’s a great idea, because they are about the same size and shape! I also added an after market captive recoil spring and guide rod (must modify the slide by drilling a hole for the recoil guide rod) and this gun becomes absolutely perfect! I used to get 2 pieces of fried chicken and some potatoes and it was decently priced and nice to have some “real” food for a changes sometimes.
There were many times while I was living in my car, it was late at night and my head was throbbing. Even in Los Angeles, in the winter and many times other seasons of the year as well I needed it.
Most likely because I left the lights on or I charged my electronics too long without driving.
This guy stops, gets out of his van, and walks across my property to tell me I can’t have a car for sale sitting in my driveway.
It might be as simple as telling off a bothersome neighbor or brushing a shirt tail aside to display a concealed firearm with earnest.
These knives were produced and marketed by Ontario Knife Co under a licensing arrangement between the companies, and they were a hit. When it arrived, I was very pleasantly surprised that it was of much higher quality overall than the original. The new knife’s handle is not the huge blocky format of the old knife, but is much thinner and re-contoured. There are two sheath mounting options available for purchase that both utilize the ESEE Kydex sheath: one version with a flexible and removable nylon belt loop attachment and another with MOLLE mounts (which was the version I ordered).
I tend to use optional BladeTech Tek-Lok’s for belt attachment on my knives anyway, so it made little sense for me to add the expense. The flexible sheath system in my mind is what makes or breaks or outstanding knife, and the sheath was designed by by people who are experienced in knife carry. In addition to the knife, ESEE also includes complete instructions on how to use the sheath system, a RAT ESEE pocket survival card ,and in my case the MOLLE clips and a number of Chicago screws.
1095 is not high end steel in the land of new crucible steels, but it does have a 57 Rockwell hardness and will take an edge much more easily (even off of river stones out in the field) than the super hard crucible steel.
The 1095 steel is high carbon and will rust on the exposed edges and laser etched areas, so you do need to keep the knife lightly oiled. The dog can obviously hear you, so his unresponsiveness is a result of poor training or your lack of obvious dominance.
Many accounts of dogs running for cover after hearing a gun shot include the hunter admitting that he never fired his rifle around the dog before the first hunting trip.
Hunting dog boots can be ideal for protecting paws and ankles from the rough terrain, burrs, hot or freezing surfaces, and even thorns.
As long as you embrace that simple concept, the training experience and subsequent harvests will both be positive.
But it did in fact help me achieve my goals of saving money and being able to live on my “own” in my car. It was nice to reach in my little soccer bag and take some pain medicine and be able to sleep peacefully after that.
If I hadn’t had a good sleeping bag, I would have frozen and been very uncomfortable the entire night.
He attended Arizona State University and received a degree in Nutrition Management in 2010.

As survivalists and preppers though, maybe it is time to learn how to engage in such actions to protect our own interests, security, and holdings. He rides around the streets in his van with his big attack dog (which is really a big baby when his wife walks him) looking at everyone’s property trying to catch anybody breaking the neighborhood covenants. The RAT knives were adopted by the military and even ended up with several government NSN numbers. The company developed its initial design and eventually other knife designs, which formed the basis of the above mentioned five year licensing agreement with Ontario Knife Co.
Now with more production control, ESEE can listen and update designs more quickly based on feedback, which is the reason ESEE knives have now become one of the most well regarded survival knife brands in the industry. It had a better handle to blade fit plus a choice of powdercoat finish colors and G-10 or Micarta Handle color choice during ordering.
ESEE also offers a complete kit version which includes both the belt loop drop leg extension and the MOLLE clips.
The sheath allows simple attachment and carry in a variety of methods, including the MOLLE straps on my packs, lashing to the belt with the included paracord, and even with my optional Bladetech belt clip.
Most high end stainless steels generally produce a much smaller shower of sparks off of a firesteel than a simple 1095 high carbon blade, which is very important in a survival situation. Drill him further (without yelling) until you get the desired response on the first command. Start by firing a pistol a hundred or so yards away from the dog and incrementally decrease that distance. When you get home from work, instead of allowing your dog to jump on you and run around uncontrollably for 10 minutes, give him some commands immediately to let him know his attention and obedience is essential at all times. It was easy when I got hungry, I could just reach over and grab a banana to eat when I needed it. I eventually got some jumper cables so when my car battery died, all I had to do was ask anyone who had a car around me if they could give me a jump rather than also having to ask them if they had jumper cables too. Also, I went to an automotive store and got 2 containers for about $10 that store keys and have a magnetic cylinder on the back so you can connect it to any metal at the bottom of your car for when you lose or lock your keys in your car. I very directly and quite impolitely told him to get his keister off my property and to stay the blank-blank out of my business. It is like getting bad service at the drive-thru window, at a fancy restaurant, a car garage, or any business where we are spending our hard earned money. Yours truly also owned, used, and loved one of their initial Training Adventure Knife models — the TAK 4” bladed production survival knife which morphed into the current day ESEE-4 Survival Knife. In the attached picture you can see the differences between the old TAK and new ESEE-4 knives.
The 4” blade is about perfect for general use unless you decide you need to become a lumberjack and start felling trees. Another ideal piece of gear to have on hand is your standard hunting vest.Typical orange hunting vests are becoming more popular and designed to cater to various breeds and sizes. Even for the big job of using the ESEE-4 to fell 4”-5” trees can be accomplished by “batoning” or pounding the spine with a small log. The Dijon mustard will oxidize the exposed steel and prevent any further rusting of all but the fine edge of the blade.
Waterfowl, pheasant and turkey hunters can start incorporating decoys at this point as well. Most are designed to allow maximum mobility while still protecting their chest and stomach from dense areas of terrain. The one I had had was 100 watts, which means anything you charge has to generally generate less electricity than that.

Another vest that you should have on hand for your furry partner might be a fitted life vest. There were many times after work I was extremely hungry and was leaving work and had a piece of fruit I reached for and ate right from my car. You cannot afford to get sick in your car when you already have enough other things to worry about.
When traveling to a site across the river to your hunting site, it’d be a good idea to equip him with a vest specifically for your his size. They even make camouflaged styles for owners that find themselves duck hunting on a shallow water boat that need to stay hidden.
One last piece of highly recommended gear you should strap onto your dog, whether it’s a week long trip or a day hike, is a saddle-style supply pack. I recommend having a backpack with everything you need for the shower and a combination lock to lock up your stuff while you are in the shower.
Usually with a large compartment on each side and literally strapped on like a saddle, the bags can carry smaller essentials.
