    Love that Bowie Don. A few details? Tang type? Steel? Handle material?

    On some levels, it's hard to imagine an ESEE 5 in orange.

    In others, it totally fits.

    Says the owner of a 3 and an Iz 2 whose next blade will be a 5.

    Yo,

    That's stag for the handle. Since it is a stag round the tang has to be a reduced tang. Since the knife is made by Ted Ott that probably makes the steel ATS-34 or 154 CM.

    Yeah, not so much.

    The stag was a given, the tang has to be reduced to go into a stag round and I could read the maker's mark off the tang and search it. I'm not sure if the white spacers are ivory or not, though.

    Oh, and I saw him win the cutting competition at Blade a couple of years ago.

    Humble is valiant. But regardless, you've got a lot of knowledge to share.

    I know what your are saying. It should be so wrong, yet it looks so right. The lime green ESEE 5, now that's really bizarre, or is it :uhoh:

    Some of my favorites...

    A Boker Magnum I got as a Christmas present; A "Super Razor Blade Stainless" with a USA manufacture that was my great-grandfather's; A Case trapper; My dad's Case congress; a raindrop damascus-blade Case; a Kershaw OSO Sweet (really awesome knife); A Smith and Wesson M&P; a really old basic wood-handled lockback from my childhood; A cheap 2-blader I picked up in Chinatown that I strangely held on to for years and still like; and, my only custom knife, an ICC "Urban Tactical 2" which survived being buried in Hurricane Katrina water surprisingly well!
