Benchmade Mini Crooked River

All too often when you look for a pocket knife with the right modern features and performance to be your daily driver, you'll find your options skew towards the tactical side of things. But if a tactical design doesn't suit your needs or style, what's left? Hunting knives offer a more traditional style, but they're usually too big for EDC and lack common features from modern blades. So leave it to Benchmade with their decades of experience in American manufacturing of both tactical and hunting knives alike to fill the void with the Mini Crooked River. It's a scaled down and more EDC-friendly version of their original Crooked River hunting knife, which paired classic styling with premium materials and modern features.

Although it might look like it upon first glance, The Mini Crooked River isn't your grandfather's hunting knife. You'll find modern materials throughout the knife: aluminum bolsters, contour-stabilized “Dymondwood” handles, and high-vis hunter orange details in the G10 backspacer and pivot accent. It still features a classic clip-point shape on its 3.40” blade, but it comes in a premium CPM-S30V steel.

Materials aside, the Mini Crooked River operates and performs like a present-day knife thanks to its ambidextrous thumbstud manual deployment and AXIS lock mechanism. Slight jimping near the spine of the blade offers a bit more control, but its otherwise smooth handles and sweeping lines result in an elegant overall aesthetic. Its tip-up pocket clip makes it easy to carry and retrieve while its 4.5” closed length, 0.5” handle thickness and 3.3 oz weight keep bulk to a minimum too. For an EDC experience from Benchmade that's less tactical and every bit as practical, check out the Mini Crooked River at the link below.

Benchmade 486 Saibu

What makes for a good everyday carry knife? It's all in the details. And in the case of the new Benchmade 486 Saibu, it's chock full of 'em. Designed in collaboration with custom knifemaker Seiichi Nakamura, the Saibu not only offers an EDC-sized blade made of premium steel, but it also comes in a unique, attractive design that's built to stand up to your day-to-day. The name of the knife literally means "details," and they all come together in this decidedly modern gent's EDC folder.

The Saibu features a premium CPM-20CV stainless steel drop point blade that's super sharp and wear resistant. At 2.98” it offers plenty of cutting edge for EDC tasks while keeping compact, making it an excellent option for EDCers in places with stricter knife laws. It's a plain edge knife with a high flat grind that lets it tackle slicing tasks with ease. But the curve at the tip lets you get in close for detail cutting work when needed.

The Saibu also sports dual thumbstuds and Benchmade's AXIS lock, providing fully ambidextrous operation. That AXIS lock sits within a beautiful ergonomic handle made primarily of lightweight G10 scaling for superior grip and control. Windows are cut into the handle to save on weight, but also to add gorgeous cocobolo wood inlays, giving the Saibu a refined modern gent's look.

But beyond the looks, the practicality of the design also means that this knife only weighs 2.7 ounces, making it barely noticeable in your pockets until you need to use it. The reversible tip-up deep carry pocket clip adds further versatility and convenience to carrying this stellar knife around everywhere.

True to its name the Saibu is a detail-oriented modern gent's knife that has the design and the materials that make it an excellent choice for EDC. It's attractively-styled yet immensely practical, it's a knife that both looks great in hand and feels great when you actually have to use it. Check it out at the link below.

Benchmade 407 Vallation

As badass as a tactical knife might be for EDC, in the end it should provide day-to-day utility for those common tasks you'll encounter most of the time. Leave it to Benchmade with their decades of experience manufacturing both tactical and everyday knives to strike the right balance with their new 407 Vallation. It's an assisted EDC knife with subtle tactical styling and emergency features that give you the best of both worlds.

At first glance, the 407 Vallation looks like a high performance EDC blade packed with signature Benchmade technology. For starters, it features dual thumbstuds on the blade and Benchmade's AXIS lock mechanism for complete ambidextrous operation. The 3.7” drop point blade offers plenty of cutting edge to work with, combined with partial serration towards the heel of the blade for added versatility. As with most of their premium knives, Benchmade didn't skimp on the blade steel here, opting for a blackwashed CPM-S30V.

It's the smaller design details beyond the partial serrations and blacked-out colorway that give the knife its subtle, tactical edge. The most important feature is its assisted open, ensuring lightning-fast deployment just short of an auto for both everyday convenience and tactical applications alike. For all that speed, the Vallation offers excellent control through its ergonomics. The 6061-T6 aluminum handle features subtle palm swells for extra purchase, while “mohawk”-style texturing on the spine of the knife gives a precision grip that's less aggressive than traditional jimping. The secure grip on the 407's handle lends well to striking with the built-in carbide glass breaker in case of emergency, too. Last but not least, a reversible, tip-up pocket clip gives you ambidextrous carry options.

For a quick-deploying EDC blade with a few handy tactical features, check out this brand new knife from Benchmade available at the link below.

Benchmade 495 Vector

When it comes to making high-quality knives for EDC, Benchmade gets top billing. But if an assisted flipper is more your style, their offerings have been a bit limited. That all changes with the introduction of the 495 Vector. The Vector is Benchmade's finest take on the assisted flipper knife thus far. It has an aggressive and efficient tactical design with premium materials to ensure it can cut as sharp as it looks.

The centerpiece of this knife is its razor sharp 3.6" spear point blade. It's made out of premium CPM-S30V steel for high hardness and edge retention. Because this is an assisted-opening flipper knife, you can bring it to bear in an instant, even with one hand. And for added safety, the Vector also includes an integrated lock on the spine that keeps the knife closed when it's not in use.

The handle features an aggressive tactical design that conforms to your hand. Its shape gives you significant purchase on the blade and maximum control over the cut. It also helps prevent against cutting yourself on your own knife during hard use. The sides of the handle have grippy G10 scales etched in a diamond pattern to make them more effective. It also features Benchmade's super-strong AXIS-lock mechanism, which keeps the knife open with minimal blade play.

The 495 Vector is a welcome addition to Benchmade's venerable line of excellent everyday carry knives. And it's especially good for those who prefer carrying assisted flipper knives. If you're overlooked Benchmade in the past for their lack of offerings in that space, take note: the 495 Vector is not to be ignored. Take a look at it yourself and grab one for your own at the link below.

Benchmade Grizzly Ridge

When you hear the word "grizzly," you probably think of rough, untamed wilderness. It’s a fitting name for a serious hunting knife, like Benchmade’s own Grizzly Creek. The made-in-the-USA knife had the perfect size and extra features that made it a great hunting companion. The latest knife to bear the name takes the best parts of the original knife and infuses them into a new model, one built to be the best utility knife in your kit. With a traditional, versatile blade and cutting-edge handles, the Grizzly Ridge is ready to take on your everyday tasks both indoors and out.

The star of the show, of course, is the Grizzly Ridge's beefy blade. The 3.5” drop point blade comes in high-end CPM S30V steel, with a thick 0.124” spine that has two jimping points for ideal control during use. The jimping near the handles lets you apply pressure for tougher cuts, and the one near the tip gives control when needed when holding the knife choked up. Benchmade's ambidextrous thumbstuds let you open the Grizzly Ridge one-handed from either orientation, and locks into place with their signature AXIS mechanism.

The Grizzly Ridge's handles feature a combo of two materials: Grivory is a synthetic resin similar to fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN), and the Versaflex (thermoplastic elastomer) overmold that accents it provides extra grip along with hi-vis orange accents. This pairing gives the knife a unique grip and comfort that lets you keep working even for the roughest tasks. EDCing the Grizzly Ridge is no sweat either, thanks to a reversible clip and a lanyard hole built into its liners.

The Benchmade Grizzly Ridge is simple, effective, and outstanding with its features. And with Benchmade's fit and finish and USA-made quality behind it, it's a tough tool that will stand the test of time and tasks in your EDC. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below.
