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.

Deceptively complex
This appears to be a very simple blade but once you have it in your hands and eyeball it from various angles you see that no detail was overlooked. This knife is 100% utilitarian with no flashiness anywhere. This is a tool not a showpiece. Has a heft to it that reminds me of a bayonet. Bought a Patriot Leather "Gettysburg" sheath before it even arrived. The S30V steel is amazing.
