So once again I bring back this old thread on ECC knives. I promised to get a couple and report back, particularly to Sunburst about the dagger/boot knife.
The wholesaler was out of the folders, so I will just discuss the fixed blade.
Yep, made in spain. so etched on the back of the blade. The ECC logo is etched on the front. 8 1/4" overall, with a 4 1/2" double edged blade of some unknown stainless steel. Bolsters (guard and pommel) also appear to be high polished stainless, but I am not sure.
This is a small knife, I think better suited for a garter sheath strapped onto Angelina Jolie's leg than lost in a meaty, manly fist. Still, one would grip this for a quick stab, not a working grip, hacking jungle or whatever. I'll show it here next to a couple of more or less common knives to give you a size reference (Buck 110 and my customized Camillus CP77).
Double edged, but the blade is not sharp. I cannot cut my finger by rubbing it on the edge (am I not a dedicated knife reviewer??). This is not untypical of a dagger/boot knife. Again, not made for cutting. Knife has elegant good looks in my opinion. I like the undentifible stag, whatever creature it came from, and they are attached by heavy pins. Examining the knife here again, I see the pommel is integral to the tang, hence also the blade. The front guard / bolsters are 2 separate pieces, attached.
The sheath is of the belt loop, not boot clip, style. Simple and efficient, it does the job. I think the knife looks good in it.
Retail seems to be between $36 and $54.
