Randall’s Scuttle and Training ESEE-5 Knife- Black Scout Reports
Hey guys black Scout survival and today we're talking about the SC 5 from SC knives designed by Randall's adventure and training Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall and this knife is a very popular among survivalist it's a good reason to be a pretty you know reasonable price knife and you get pretty good quality components for what you're paying for.
The knife has 11 inches overall with a five and a quarter inch blade quarter inch thick steel you can get uh serrated but I got the non straighter version has jumping on the back blade comes with some slab but rounded micarta handles has a bow-drill divot has lanyard hole with a pummel breaker here glass breaker and i saber grind and has its black.
Coating on here and this black coating is a lot more durable you know when you look at something like the BK to this coating is a lot more durable than BK 2 and because my BK 2 when I first got I started using a coating came off within a few days but this coating coating is staying on pretty well but you can get in different colors and.
Different variations or whatnot it comes with a Kydex sheath pretty nice sheath and it has a locking system here so you close it and the knife won't come out you know the knifes in there pretty good anyway but also comes with this lanyard here you can put here and on the in here or wrap around here and use it as a way.
To hold your sheath on also it comes with this clip plate and you can clip it on mount it on and that way the knife kind of clips on a drop system on a drop system to you the only problem with that is those if you use it like that it inhibits the bow drill divots so you'd have to take the knife out of the sheath to use it as a bow drill divot.
Which I do not recommend unless you're left-handed and then you'll have it on this side so you'd be fine but anyhow let's just play around the knife a little bit and I kind of show you some guys some things with it but uh let's go ahead get to that alright guys see ya the handle inner goes to this knifes varying.
Nice you know you can have your standard grip but you can use the lanyard and kind of grip down and has this kind of hump right here this valley right here where you can kind of grip in like that you know it chops you know because it's got so much weight it weighs 16 ounces so it chops extremely well and for you know a 5 inch knife that's kind of.
Surprising that chops this well so you can see there you know it chops very very well digs deep because you know the weight of it but let's go ahead and do the YouTube favorite of batani this is oak so this wood is extremely tough sink it in the ground a lot the problem that a very tough season oak right there.
And I took a bit to baton through but that's because you know the saber grind doesn't baton as well as a full flat grind per se but it still gets the job done and that was you know about a four inch piece of wood there alright guys so you see the baton and did pretty well cut and stayed on there.
Pretty good it has that saber grind like I said full flat grind probably will you know the times a lot barrack is a wedge is better but this does baton quite well let's play around with us some more alright guys so we're going to do some finer carve and work now using the daily portion air to carve a goodfeather stick.
And you know you can car pretty good feather sticks with this even though it's a larger size knife you know try to put a notch on here for like a trap dig in there a little bit more you can see that for a trigger for a snare something like that are trapped spring snare but a knife works well for fine tasks and you knowbut awning I did feel.
Some fatigue when doing the fine stuff just trying to control you know the heavy knife but you know it's a compromise especially for a survival knife something like this that can be a hatchet a pry bar a knife and do a wide variety of tasks not really expert at one but a general-purpose good for about everything you can do but let's go ahead.
And use this bow drill divot and let's see if we can get a coal with this real quick all right guys let's go ahead and see if we get a call from a bow drill fire using this divot on here and if you want to learn this technique just check back we got an older video showing how to do this this is always be last resort you never.
Want to depend on this but it's good to have a knife with a bow drill divot so that's one less thing you have to make if you're going to you know have to do this or go this route make sure you always want to have your knife in the sheath when you're doing it too we're we get smoked alright that : quite lit we don't want.
To destroy it once you get smoking you to go a little bit longer and I should have but I didn't see smoke rollin off now all right now that's a burning coal there we could blow that into flames you can see that but anyhow when I was doing this I did notice fatigue in my hand from the weight of the blade going down me having.
A strain to keep this way so this bozo divot will work but not ideal you'll notice there's not much damage to the hole no burning or anything I'll just put some a little bit of Lube in there and it stayed good hey guys black sky survival and we're just wrapped up the se5 you know mess around with it playing around with it.
But the nice overall you know I like it is it my favorite knife no but I definitely think it would improve your advantages in a survival situation but Tim Ferriss he's author of the book for our chef eating rice called the blue sky workweek and what not but he and in the 4-hour chef he has some survival stuff he talks about in there and he said if.
He had one knife to walk out into the unknown this would be it and I can kind of see that likes it is it my favorite knife no but I definitely could walk out and unknown with it and feel good about it you know it's heavy it's not a master of everything but it can do about everything you know what I mean so in a small situation let's play what's you.
Kind of what you want you know in a one two option so you know the grip and everything feels good its high-quality components you know a lot of people say which I get se 502 B k2 and to me if you're going to get the B k2 and upgrade it meaning get to micarta handles get a new cod X sheath then you're better off going to hang at the s5 in my opinion I.
Have both knives like both of them but in my opinion instead of spending money go ahead and get this knife but this knife fritos about 150 and i think you can get it's cheaper and some other outlets i've seen like eBay maybe Amazon but you know I've been using se knives different products for a while and they're good company they're.
American-made has a warranty on it lifetime warranty so you break the knife no matter if I sell it to my buddy and he breaks it he's gonna get a brand new knife or place so you know good American made company you know support american-made goods but check out black Scouts of all.com for more tips and tutorials if you had subscribed to our.
