Esee Izula Extended Grip/Handle

I have had an Esee Izula since about the time it was released (#164). It has been a fantastic companion for on hikes and around camp. The blade is the perfect length without being difficult to control on delicate tasks. However, I have always wished, even with small hands, that the handle was just slightly larger. So I designed a set of slabs that use 1/4 in hardwood to do so.

I was not sure if I wanted to keep it this way all the time so the project takes advantage of the knife’s Skelton frame for a snug fit and uses Chicago style screws to hold it tight.

The project took just under 10 minutes to cut and included pilot holes for the fasteners.


Looks nice.
