Great buscraft blade
The knive is well made. Fits and rest comfortable in my hand and it does the job outdoors hiking. I am only looking for a better sheat for this knive. I prefer leather sheat black butt also do not mind nylon sheat black with molle feature. If you have any tips or suggestions for me i like to hear them.

Great Knife
This knife is such a bada**! It really can handle most anything. Super sharp and durable. The sheath is decent, the screws did need some tightening after my first hike.

Best in his class
I'm a pro guide in Alaska. A knife his a part of my EDC in the field. So, I used many different brands, styles: rescue, survival, hunting or outdoors knives. So far, the Benchmade 162-1 is the best in his category. The quality of the blade is amazing as well as size, balance, feeling and overall quality are at the edge !

Pros: Weight
Cons: None
Middle weight
I use the Benchmade leather sheath, as the Kydex sheath doesn't hold the knife in place. I also put a leather belt loop dangle on the leather sheath. Comfort on a belt all day is important as I often spend 8 hour days in the woods clearing brush and invasive species. Some sheaths carry too high and pinch your side. Fixed sheaths bind when sitting on the Gator. The Bushcrafter is heavy enough to baton an ugly parasitic grapevine, but light enough for whittling the bark off a walking stick. My Bark River Bravo 1 is similar in many respects, but it has a convex grind which requires my Ken Onion sharpener to touch up. The Bushcrafter can be done with a diamond stone or Sypderco sharpener. For heavy baton work, nothing beats the TrailMaster, but that is simply too heavy to comfortably wear all day. I wore this knife all day yesterday and used it several times.

Disapointed
I bought this knife as a back up for my survival / hunting kit. I was expecting a quality blade and presentation. The box looked as if it had been around a few years and upon opening the box there was just a knife. No paperwork, no sticker, no nothing. Now for the really disappointing part. The first thing that really made me frown was the poor attempt at a kydex sheath. It is not even or even close to being symmetrical. The material is really thin and the belt loop is rigid and digs into my side, not to mention that it is mounted to the sheath crooked. Next up is are the scales... Where do I start? I picked it up and gripped it and noticed a click in my hand. Upon inspection I found that both scales were not even mounted correctly. This is really evident when you hold the blade by the blade and shake it and you hear both scales rattling from across the room. Oh sure the blade has an edge on it, you bet it will slice paper but that is about the pros I would offer on this blade. I can't even begin to explain how Benchmade has lost my respect.
