Every element of the Hunt line of knives from Benchmade has been scrutinized and tested to create the best user experience possible. This premium line of hunting knives feature CPM-S30V steel for excellent corrosion resistant, edge retention, and durabilty. A choice of Dymondwood® or contoured G10 is available to fit your preference; both materials are more than capable of taking on the elements while providing a comfortable interface.
This 15009-ORG Steep Country Hunter fixed blade knife has an orange Santoprene handle and includes a Kydex sheath with leather belt loop and secure strap.
The blade is well made with a good steel and seems to hold a good edge. however the handle is quite diminutive for the relatively thick and wide blade. For most people a overall larger handle would be much more ergonomic. The sheath is very poor quality as well, the blade is not retained at all by the kydex. the leather loop and snap is of dubious quality and design as well. unless yo are carrying the knife in a pack, a new sheath would be needed.
Let me start by saying, Benchmade is my favorite folding knife company. How ever if i had it to do over again I wouldn't by this knife. The blade is great, but dis proportioned to the handle, which feels to small in my hand. The sheath is poorly fitted kydex with a cheap, weird, leather clasp and over sized belt loop. After this disappointment I think I will stick with their folders.
