The Benchmade Pardue Hunter is a fixed blade design influenced by years of hunting experience. This all-around hunting fixed blade represents the first custom collaboration in the Benchmade HUNT line, and provides a practical platform for general outdoor use. The knife features a full-tang CPM-S30V stainless steel blade outfitted with comfortable olive drab/black striped micarta scales. The Pardue Hunter includes a pressure-fit leather sheath with an integrated guard for secure belt carry.
I bought this during the National Knife Day sale because the deal was amazing and the design was discontinued. I decided to EDC it since it was small enough and I typically carry one folder and one fixed blade. I was amazed at how much I liked it despite the simple design. Highly recommend for any animal cleaning tasks, edc, or just a general beater. This knife will hold up to all of those things! And it's super easy to clean on top of that!
First let me preface this by saying I snagged this in the bargain bin here, because the sheath was “dirty.” LOLZ Great blade shape, premium steel, and beautiful satin finish. Handle is incredibly comfy. The micarta scales are perfect and look great too. For a small fixed blade. it’s quite the workhouse. The sheath is solidly built, and what every dirt they spoke about when they changed the price on this, I’m callin BS. Looks good to me. But I like the worn leather look. So idk. If you need a fixed blade but don’t want to carry what feels like a sword around your belt this is for you.
