Update
Had it for a few years now, bought a second one of this model, and a tan handle version. To let all who love this knife but dislike the sheath. The TOPS bushcrafter sheath works perfectly. I read a review where the condor runs circles around this knife.....not a chance in my use. Now their personal preference might be for the condor, sure, cool, but better then this in every conceivable way? That is just not true for me. I have a very large collection (well over 300 and 60% or more are premium blades, folders and fixed) and use my knives daily, carry 2 to 3 daily, 1-2 folders and a fixed blade, (today have a CS master hunter on my hip, in the original BM bushcrafter sheath) my advice is to handle one in person before buying as the handle is odd at first, my glove size is a 9, bigger hand will be as good or better imo. Ignore the negatives until you handle one yourself. BM did a great job on heat treat and temper, takes and holds a great edge and no chipping so far.

Prototypical Camping Knife
The Benchmade Bushcrafter knife is an absolute stunner.The overall shape, from tip to butt, is art on a stick.Design elements are highly functional, from the husky blade build to the spine, squared off for ferrostick striking.As for the sheath? Well, I didn't buy the knife for the sheath...the included sheath will do what it is supposed to do, but I bought a sheath from L. T. Wright that fits the Bushcrafter. Very nice piece for the dollars spent.The blade cleans up well from making shavings from fatwood, the resins are gooey, and ferro strike marks also clean well from the spine. As an aside, this knife throws LOTS of MASSIVE Sparks for firestarting! Much easier to spark a fire with the knife spine than with those spindly little strikers most ferro rods come with.Very satisfied with the Sibert-designed Benchmade Bushcrafter.

Benchmade 162 Bushcraft knife
I previously bought one these knives. The design and balance is excellent. Easy to maintain the edge. Quality construction. I wished they had put a little jimpingon top of handle where the blade leaves the handle.
