The Crooked River is a beautifully made modernized hunting knife! It has a large, 4" clip point blade with S30V stainless steel that holds a great working edge at a Rockwell hardness between 58-60. This version has a super lightweight aluminum bolster with G10 handle scales! The back spacer is hunting orange colored G10 and it has an aluminum pivot ring that is also anodized orange! The dual thumb studs as well as the ambidextrous, axis lock allow you to easily use the knife left or right handed if you need to use the knife with your main or off-hand.
The Crooked River has quickly become a favorite! A great design and great materials!
Benchmade's axis lock is considered the safest lock on the market. It is incredibly reliable and easy to use one handed. The action is very smooth, plus you never have to put your fingers or hand in the way of the blade to disengage the lock.
Benchmade is our top selling brand and for good reason. They make their knives here in the USA out of the best materials (they even make their own screws!). Their blade steels are the same steels as what the best custom knife makers use. For all of these reasons, Benchmade Knives is the standard to which other knife companies are compared to.
