Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Received this fixed blade from Gollik today and wanted to share my first impressions. It has a 5.3" blade length made of 0.165" thick Sleipner steel, contoured G10 handles, and weighs roughly 8-9 ounces. The handle feels very comfortable in any grip and fills my large hands nicely. The way the gimping runs partly into the handle allows for good traction on the thumb. Sheath is Kydex with leather belt loop and handle snap attached by cord. Blade fits snuggly with good retention. The blade is fairly stout with a high flat grind. The grind on the blade is magnificent! Comes down to a fine edge that is about as thick just behind the edge as the stock edge on my Para Military 2. From belly to tip thickens up a little and the tip looks like it would hold up to some stabbing/twisting. The spine is square enough to be handy (firesteel striking, bark removal, etc.) but not sharp enough it'll cut your fingers. Just an overall utilitarian blade that looks like it wants to get work done, whatever you throw at it. To me, this knife is basically a much improved version of the ESEE 5. It can handle the same tough tasks, yet is almost half the weight, way better slicer, and feels much nicer in the hands during use. Looking forward to using this knife on my next outdoors excursion.
