The Benchmade Tengu 601 is a unique pocket knife. Designed by world-famous knife maker Jared Oeser who is mostly known for his traditional pocket knives. The Tengu is enhanced with a fancy black-white G10 handle. The contrast is amazing and the knife will look great when combined with a neat outfit. Just like all other Jared Oeser's handmade knives the handle is enhanced with a shield.
The blade is made from CPM-20CV steel. A great type of steel that retains its sharpness well. The tanto-shaped blade is great for the more precise and penetrating tasks. You can also use the flat part of the tanto tip as a scraper. You open the Tengu with the flipper, after which a solid liner lock locks the blade. Like many traditional pocket knives the Tengu is not enhanced with a pocket clip. That is why Benchmade added a neat leather pouch to carry the knife in your pocket.
All in all the Tengu is a very successful cooperation between Benchmade and Jared Oeser. With the Tengu they blur the line between traditional and modern. The result is a stylish and functional pocket knife for life.
