    I have had good luck with my Benchmade knives in the past and this is a good looking knife to.

    If I made much more money than I do now, I'd have this thing. Not because its the coolest knife in the world, but because its different. Its US made, Solid company, I like the steel, and mostly just because it would be fun and interesting to give it a shot. Not too much money. But like so many have said, if I had to choose, i'd pick something else over it. Luckily for some, they get to choose all of them.

    I may have it one day, but its not top 3 on the list.

    I got to get me one of those Benchmade dead blow hammers.
    Cool video. Thanks for posting it up.

    Default Got Mine Today

    Today the USPS brought my Benchmade Bushcrafter to me. The knife feels great to hold and the blade is VERY sharp. I was already a huge fan of S30V steel, and this one just further convinces me that it is worth the higher price. The sheath is okay, not great. It will do. I added a belt loop to the D ring on the back to make it a dangler type sheath(this seemed odd that Benchmade didn't do it to start with) Overall, I think that this will be a good addition to the stable.

    I got mine today as well. Agree that it is unique. Sturdy to say the least! I will likely sand some of the sharp edges off the handle but I'm liking it so far. Something different.

    Picked up one at a knife show for $150 new in box. It's 433 of 500 in the first production run. It's nice and agree on the sharp edges but I think it's crazy at $200 retail. It's probably really worth $120 as a production knife. Nice but I can get a nice custom for a little more than $200. Picked up this oeser new for $250 in o1 just recently

    The knife is very nice. The handle isn't as big as I thought it looked and feels great. I have small hands and it fits well. The sheath design is not the best. When I insert the blade, it fits so tight that the blade edge is cutting into the leather. Also, the snap requires two hands to work. I hope it will loosen over time, but it's not easy to close. I bought this as my winter hiking knife so I wanted something that I didn't have to worry as much about rust forming.
