In 1997, Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin began laying the ground work for what would become ESEE knives. After spending years instructing survival classes in the Peruvian Jungle, they returned to the states where they began designing knives based on their experiences. After creating designs for several companies they, launched ESEE knives and the rest is history. Today they continue to offer survival training classes along with a variety of other outdoor skills classes and have formed their own search and rescue team.
