The Benchmade Crooked River is an extraordinary knife from the Benchmade Hunting knife line. The blade has a traditional clip-point shape, the knife also uses modern materials and production methods. A strong combination of time-tested design and today's technological progress.
The blade has a classic clippoint shape made from CPM-S30V steel. This knife steel will not disappoint you in the field and can be sharpened well. You open the blade with the thumb rest and once opened, the blade is held securely in place by the Axis-lock.
The handle has steel liners for strength. These liners are milled to make the knife lighter. The bolsters are made from aluminium and the handle parts of stabilized wood. Together with the ergonomic handle design these provide a good grip. The backspacer and the "pivot collar" are enhanced with a nice orange colour and add some colour to this further modest knife. The pivot collar is the coloured ring around the pivot.
The Benchmade Crooked River gives a modern interpretation to hunting knives. A sublime combination of design and material.

If you have big hands this knife is for you. Super comfy handle, nice Jimping, feels solid and classy. Blade is like a razor and flicks open with ease. I know some people may beg to differ but I think the orange accents look great. I'd describe it as a modern classic and I highly recommend it.
