What are you uisng it for?
Camping, defense, construction etc?
My use is in construction, so I beat it up daily.
I could point you in the right direction if I know usage a little better.
There are better brands in fixed blade and folder, but the price jumps big time on folders.

I don't own one personally but I know that ESEE has a great warrantee, probably the best. No questions asked, they'll replace your blade.

Had an ESEE-4 about ten years back. Have passed it on to my son.
What I liked about it:
It liked my hand. I don't think I've ever held another knife that felt as well balanced.
I liked the notch (the finger groove) that was cut into the blade.
It was the perfect size.
It had a Kydex sheath that 'locked on'. Absolutely no rattle.
It never went anywhere. I bought it for SHTF and the fan is still poop-free.
It was expensive. You can get a knife that does knife stuff for under $40.
Pro Tip - That'll leave you change for buying a field saw and an axe. Put those items out where you think you're going to pick them up and go.
