200 Puuko with improvements!
okay so if you are on the fence whether to buy this or not, stop and just click the button lol you will not be disappointed! It is significantly larger than the 200 puuko but very similar in design, a lightweight bushcraft style knife made with the most premium steel and versatile handles this thing will serve you well through many different tasks... My only one gripe and reason for 4 instead of 5 stars was that the edge grind (on my specific knife, maybe not all) was not finished very well ESPECIALLY for a benchmade and I had gotten a "first production run" sample so maybe that is why but after a bit of time on my diamond plates I realized they ran the CPM 3V much harder with this model than they did the pukko which is what this steel likes so performance and edge retention should be amazing during use as well as overall strength... Also the sheath has been improved to where the knife is actually locked into it securely unlike the majority of complaints from puuko owners... Just wish they would have spent a little more time and effort on sharpening the edge and this would be a 5 out of 5
