We love the ESEE Candiru. It’s incredibly small, and incredibly light, making it a fantastic fixed blade for EDC. It comes in a variety of colors, so you can match your ESEE Candiru to your preferred aesthetic, but most importantly, it is still backed by ESEE’s 100% unconditional lifetime guarantee.
First off, just like most all ESEE knives, the ESEE Candiru is made of 1095 carbon steel, which as we all know does require a bit of care and at least the occasional sharpening. The upside is it’s not that tough to sharpen.
The ESEE Candiru comes in a variety of colors: dark earth, pink, black, purple, OD green, and desert tan. The Candiru’s textured, powder coating helps with slip resistance and adds corrosion resistance.
The 5.13″ Candiru has a 2” drop point blade with jimping on the spine. At only 1.7 ounces, it weighs less than many protein bars. This means it’s easy to toss in your pocket, on your belt (with the included belt clip and sheath), or in your pack, and it won’t weigh you down at all.

ESEE backs all their knives with their No Questions Asked Warranty. If you handed your ESEE Candiru over to your co-worker, and they accidentally broke the blade by using it as a pry bar, you can call ESEE, and they’ll replace your broken Candiru with another Candiru.
Here’s a quick video demonstrating the exact smallness of the Esee Candiru:
