Benchmade Crooked River Folding Knife

There’s more to EDC than cell phones and flashlights. If your ideal recreation involves trees, mountains and rivers, not restaurants and theaters, you need gear designed for your lifestyle. Benchmade’s Crooked River Family of knives was designed specifically for outdoor carry, pushing the preconceived notions of what a hunting knife should be. It’s a manual-opening knife constructed of S30V Steel with a blade length of 4-inches, reaching a total open length of 9.30-inches. Aesthetics weren’t a passing thought, either: the satin, clip-point blade is balanced by stabilized wood or G10 handles. Even the anodized aluminum bolsters are designed for outdoor use, and the orange G10 spacer adds to overall fit and feel. Perhaps there should be a new category for carry for sportsmen. We’ll call it ODC (Outdoor Carry).
