Nothing wrong the the Esee 4 and 5 you were looking at. Both have served me well for many years and more to come. The 4 is avgreat solid allrounder, the 5 is a true beast. This thread needs some pics now :)

In addition to the above:
There's the Congres knives wich are made for a russian collectors group, they have a special logo with the sunglasses.
And there's the Shirogorov Bears knives made in limited numbers for the USN forum collectors with their own SB logo on the knife.
