ESEE Imlay Rescue Knife 440C Stainless Steel Construction
The ESEE Imlay rescue knife is based on the legendary Izula pattern and designed to be attached to a PFD, harness or belt. The knife gets its name from a well-known technical slot canyon in Zion National Park that requires more than 40 rappels and negotiating numerous obstacles to complete.
Developed by the ESEE team during their SAR, swiftwater, and recreational rope activities, the knife features a dull, blunted tip for safer use around tensioned ropes or rescue subjects, serrations to get through tough materials, double-spine jimping for a more secure grip, skeletonized design to reduce size and weight, O2 slot, and 440C stainless steel for use in wet environments, as well as its edge holding abilities.
The sheathing features an ESEE designed secondary retention strap and multiple carry options. The system can be clipped into your gear rack with a small accessory carabiner by using the sheath hole, laced onto a PFD using the supplied cordage by going through the sheath holes, or simply clipped into place using an Izula Clip Plate (we do not suggest the latter method for environments requiring very secure attachments). To deploy the knife, simply remove the secondary retention strap from the sheath post, then thumb the blade out of the sheath as you would any other ESEE knife. The retention strap is designed to stay on the knife during use and features a long tail for easier manipulation with gloved hands. The Imlay system includes the knife, sheath, clip plate, secondary retention device, and paracord.
