Benchmade 162
As others have noted the price is steep. nearing custom blade prices. It is worth it. This has become my EDC although in a different sheath. Blade geometry is well suited for field and bush crafting (called camping when I grew up) and it holds an edge really well. The edge is easy to touch up if needed but it will not likely be needed often. A little stropping is all I find necessary with an occasional touch up. It is a bit of a beast at >7 ounces but handles very comfortably. Have not been plagued with hot spots during heavy use.Benchmade customer service is all around first rate, in my experience. After more than 2 years of constant use I am happy. What more can one ask?

Cons: None
SUPER SHARP AND BALANCE
My knife came super sharp, beyond razor sharp, balanced and ever lasting scales. I love the design that the spine of the blade is squared enough to use flint steel that I happened to have. Going to order or make a dangler strap. I think the close body way the sheath fits will be perfect for horse back riding. Need sharp tough knife to treat livestock and this one sure goes beyond all ranch and camping reqiurements. GD
