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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Uncomfortable handle
Benchmade makes great stuff, no doubt, but this handle is a major fail. The top of the handle is fat and the bottom is skinny. It makes for a knife that never quite feels at home. As a custom knife maker, I was excited to see what the mighty Benchmade would put out for bushcraft. But this knife is an extreme disappointment for me. The $35 Condore Bushlore runs circles around this knife in every conceivable way except edge retention. The Bushlore can be sharpened in about two minutes, whereas this S30V (while excellent) takes significantly more time to get sharp. So the edge retention bit is a moot point.
