The ESEE 5 is a beast of a knife. If the knife is for survival against the 2 legged variety then he might better be served with the ESEE 6 as its a little longer, a little thinner, a little lighter, and available with a sharpened clip point. ESEE-6 Double Edge, Rounded Pommel, Black w/ Clip Plate, PLain Blade

If just general survival, then you can get the 6 without the sharpened portion. It was a little too big for me to carry though. I like carrying the ESEE 3 myself (3 3/4" blade) and a Swamp Rat RatManDu as a camp knife if I want something bigger than the 3.

Love my Becker BK-2, although I think a 7" blade would be better as a survival blade.

I bought my son a Mora Bushcraft Black for his 16th birthday.
Nice knife for $38 shipped. Sharp and hefty enough . The sheath may not endure hard use though.
I prefer it over the ones available at Dicks, Gander, WalMart etc.
It is not stainless but I like that.
