Benchmade 202 LEUKU Fixed Blade Knife 3V
The Benchmade 202 LEUKU Fixed Blade Knife is a beast of a fixed blade that’s built to last a lifetime. It has a super tough steel with a comfortable grip and, of course, it’s made right here in the USA.
The 202 Leuku has a 5.19” CPM 3V drop point blade with a blade thickness of 0.14” hardened to 60-62 HRC. For those of us that aren’t super steel whizzes, CPM 3V is a powdered metal version of the now discontinued Vasco Die Steel. It has a tremendous amount of toughness combined with a super high wear resistance. All this combines with just enough chromium (one of the key elements in stain and corrosion resistance) to help this tool steel be less corrosion resistant. It’s not a stainless steel but maintenance is always a bit easier with a tiny bit of chromium in your blade.
This full-tang fixed blade has a textured ranger green Santoprene handle which all but eliminates hot spots for a super comfortable grip, even after extended use. It has a handle thickness of 0.8” and a handle length of 4.5”. There’s a generous lanyard hole for attachment and this knife comes with a black leather sheath with a dangler attachment as well as a ferro rod loop.
This knife makes an excellent bushcraft and outdoor knife with its full-tang blade length shortly over 5" inches and its handle material that makes it grip easily to the hand when outdoors. This no-nonsense fixed blade is built for strenuous bushcrafting applications while maximizing in-hand comfort. Lock down your essentials. Food, water, knife, and everything in between.
