What started as a conversation at the Blade Show, turned into a very popular knife in the ESEE Knives Expat line. The CL1 cleaver was born from Expat's extensive cooking experience, both in the kitchen and the bush - domestically and abroad. If you're looking for a do-all tool around the camp kitchen that can serve double duty for splitting kindling or hacking a campsite clearing, then the Expat Cleaver should be on your list.

About the designer: Yes, “Expat” is a real person. A trainer, adventurer, world traveler and a lot of other things mixed in between. While working in some of the more sketchy corners of South America, Expat contacted ESEE in the search for high-quality, worst case scenario jungle survival training. Thus began a close association that has lasted for over 15 years. Expat has logged thousands of miles throughout the third world, sometimes with the ESEE team, but always with ESEE products. From armored motorcades in Colombia and trekking in the Himalayas, to earthquakes in El Salvador and hunting in the Balkans, ESEE knives have been a constant companion. He has been a student, a translator, and an instructor for Randall’s Adventure Training. Throughout his time overseas, he has developed some unique insights on tools and adventures and is currently working with ESEE to bring these designs and experiences to others. What began with a cleaver will end up…well, who knows? That’s the whole point of the Expat Experience.

The ESEE Expat line features the same "no questions asked" warranty as the standard ESEE line.
