The locals in Peru call the meanest, nastiest ant of the jungle by the name "Isula". We know it as the Bullet Ant. The Bullet Ant is known to be independent, tough, light on its feet, and a real aggressive survivor - the IZULA knife is built the same way. The video below shows one of our team taking a voluntary sting during a jungle survival class.
Izulas with optional kit, include: paracord, cord lock, large split ring, small split ring, ferro fire starting rod, emergency whistle and plastic snap hook.
Stainless steel Izulas are made from 440C. It should be noted that stainless steel is not as flexible as carbon steels. Any excessive flexing of the blade may cause breakage.
ESEE knives are made in the USA with absolute attention to quality materials and care during the manufacturing process. We stand behind our knives with a 100% lifetime, unconditional guarantee. If your ESEE knife should ever fail we will repair or replace it. This warranty follows the knife throughout its life, anywhere in the world. View the warranty page.
ESEE knives made from high carbon 1095 steel will rust and stain if not properly cared for, especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user’s responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor on the blade. Use Lock Tite when assembling any hardware, such as attaching the clip plate to the sheath.
