Benchmade knives come with the unbelievable Life-Sharp program: for the life of your knife you can send it back to the factory and they will dissemble, inspect, fix any problems that may arise, sharpen the knife,and mail it back to you. You pay for shipping to the factory and they’ll handle the rest.
First off this is a serious knife for the bush! It is almost too pretty to use outdoors! It looks like a work of art but it does the job well! It fits well in the hand and the S30V steel is sharp and holds an edge very well. The stainless steel looks so clean and resists stains. The sheath is ok. I use a d ring to attach to my belt and it pivots nicely and stays out of the way when sitting etc.
You can use this blade for everything from cutting food and preparing meals to making feathersticks and battoning wood for the fire. It cleans up well, in fact well enough to use in food preparation if you worry about carbon steel. I put a Light My Fire Swedish fire steel 2.0 Army with 1/8" bungy paracord to secure it to the sheath. A great addition to the sheath. You can use the spine of the bushcrafter to throw some serious sparks on your kindling.
Great sized bushcrafter that is not too large, but very capable!
