INTRODUCING THE BENCHMADE HUNT.

A compact AXIS folding hunting knife with a recurved blade to assist with processing duties. Keep one in your pocket and a fixed blade in your pack.

The Hunt line is a very exciting offering from Benchmade. Here at KnifeCenter, we expect it will bring them the same stature in hunting knives that they already enjoy in tactical and EDC. The North Fork, the first folder to be released in the Hunt series, features S30V steel and G10 handles and it is a great product made in the USA.

Research projects, R&D lab tests and many miles of field research provided the foundation for the design and development of Benchmade HUNT. Built from advanced materials usually reserved for spaceships and surgical equipment, these technologically advanced hunting knives provide refined performance and rugged durability. Benchmade HUNT. The art of pursuit.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material, None
Cons: Weight, Handle Feel
This knife is a well designed tool, although it's all around uses such as EDC are argued about, we must remember it wasn't created for EDC. It was made to handle cleaning and processing larger game. The thickness of the blade is great for when you are reaching deep up into that chest cavity blind. The gimping on it isn't that useful for other than locating where you are on the blade. The finish on the stabilized wood and the high quality S30V stainless steel comes in handy because blood will quickly take the finish off of wood or normal steel. We all know you can't clean the knife out in the field that well. Besides, cleaning the knife becomes a secondary thought to packing the game out. Overall though I give this knife a four out of five due to the ergonomics of the handle. It promotes a singular grip style, and if you have ever processed an animal you would understand that a different grip will give you a different cut. Great job Benchmade!

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
High quality
The overall quality of this knife is very good as expected. I also like the appearance and feel of the handle. The reason I did not rate as a 5 is because of the blade thickness near the tip. Drop point blades are much thicker at the tip than a clip point for example which gives it more strength. However, the spine thickness of this blade was carried out almost all the way to the tip. This made it difficult to get the point into narrow areas such as opening an envelope or cutting a zip tie. I narrowed the spine near the tip and the knife is now much more useful as an ever day carry.
