Ultimate Survivalist: Do you think the benchmade bushcraft knife could be a survival knife

ksmith68wm6: Yes, absolutely the Benchmade 162 Bushcraft would make an excellent survival knife! I've had mine for a few weeks now, and love it. Yes, the handle takes a little getting used to, but it is super comfortable. The blade makes light work of slicing, chopping, splitting, and feathering. Not to mention the sparking ability with flint...Wow! The steal will last a lifetime and then some-You will be able to hand this knife down for generations and still function great. The sheath can be considered a draw back, but for me, its ok. Sure it would be better in kydex with a drain hole, but the leather will absorb moisture just as well and you don't have to worry about it freezing.

Filimed17: I think, every knife which you have on a trip is a survival knife. But more than on your knife depends on our brain and our skills.

Yvan Bertucci: Did you cut a living tree ?

Ultimate Survivalist: Should i get the blackbird sk5 or the benchmade bushcraft knife?

AldoSchmedack: Thank you for doing the review on the knife. I've had mine now for half of a year and have learned to love the handle, but it does take getting used to. I like the side scallops on the handle. I think the handle, like I said, just takes getting used to. It's not bad, just different. Also, I've been watching your videos on my DVD player through it's YouTube program for a long time and rarely get on the PC like now. But I thought I'd comment on this video and chime in that I enjoy your videos a lot. One of my top 5 outdoors channels! Been on YouTube since the beginning and watch YouTube several hours daily and I have yet to find someone who has the knack at video reviews as you. God bless and please keep them coming!

spoonman73: Hey , had this knife for awhile and can tell you that the handle takes a little getting used to. The forward palm swell I think is designed for choking up on the blade while whittling. I love the steel, the shape and design of the blade and the fact that it is full tang. I can also attest to its sharpness as I had it on my bed and laid my foot wide open with it which took weeks to heal. Fun. Overall a good knife but the sheath is a joke. Would be great in kydex.

mermaniel: I went ahead and got this one. Perfect all around woods knife if you ask me. One of the few s30v fixed blades knives I could find. For me stainless is important since its humid up here in southern Canada and with the snow in winter, a high carbon blade would rust after a few days out. Since it would be a food prep knife as well, I dont want rust or coated blades. This knife along with a bk9 is for wood work is all you really need.

coffeeexmachina: Nice knife, but it doesn't beat out my Survive GSO-4.1 :^D

48zigzag: For a bushcrafting knife it doesn't look like it cuts/carves wood very well, as does a scandi grind.

Equip 2 Endure LLC: It would be very good at carving a handle on a piece of wood, that would in turn make a great tool for hammering

wicked Hale: There's nothing from cold steel that will ever compare to bench maid, just for the simple fact that bench maid makes their products in America and cold steel doesn't.

Bruce Hall: Add a dangler or a baltic rig sure helps too.

ReclusiveMountainMan: Light My Fire is one good one (made in Sweden). If you want a magnesium firestarter, Doan is the only way to go (Made in USA). I carry both when backpacking.

KnivesandTools: This Benchmade Bushcrafter is everything I hoped for in a serious outdoor knife. So many knife buyers today would be better served (in their dreams mostly) with some zombie-killing tactical bladed monster or an axe for splitting firewood. On the other hand, this Benchmade eats realistic outdoor tasks for breakfast with room left over for extreme use. here is the link to it in case anyone is interested:amzn.to\1hoGjYr

Adam Steinhart: Thanks for the review. Your comments about the handle seem true. I have medium size hands, and the handle profile works very well for me. The knife has performed very well for me.

Derek Hurding: Love the overall look and materials...hate the green handles I would have bought it if it came in different handle options..

Equip 2 Endure LLC: Thanks for the feedback

subroland: i know you often get this question, but you know what pants your rocking in this vid? like the back pocket design.

Matthew Nguyen: Do you have a video on that fire box?

mermaniel: well i got it today. I have to say , so far I really like the handle. Well see after a couple of trips out.

Kevin Oubre: Benchmade really needs to step their design game up. They are being trounced by ZT and Spyderco. And I am a certified fanboy. Fairly dissapointed.

Jerry Delmonico: So how long did you spend with the knife?

James Graham: Will you ever review the Tops BOB Fieldcraft? Not enough reviews on here of that knife. Great vids and keep up the good work!

Trav Travthebushman: So whats the deal with this knife? I was looking at this knife today and was going to get it. But backed out till I do.e so E research ... the blade I looked at said D2 on the blade. Was that's a different knife or what?

Equip 2 Endure LLC: We reviewed it, and gave it away

sasktactical: I was always pretty un-enthused about this knife. It's price point puts it in direct competition with Bark River, Fallkniven, Helle, Enzo, and Jacklore to name a few. What a disappointing offering from Benchmade!

wicked Hale: Benchmade*

GraniteStateBlades: I agree, I would want this knife if it was more affordable. I will stick with the BK2.

Equip 2 Endure LLC: Thanks for watching

Clark V: Thanks for the video

RealityStar9: Wetterling Hunters axe $80 Bahco Laplander saw $25 Becker BK2 knife $60 Mora companion knife $15 Leatherman Wingman $20 Total: $200 vs Benchmade 162 Bushcraft $200

jtfreelancer: Adam, my only concern is the pommel of the knife. With that odd angle do you think it will still be effective at driving tent stakes into the ground?

Jess Blankenship III: I appreciate your reviews, very fair.

Equip 2 Endure LLC: I had the knife for about a month, the handle I think will have a love or hate effect on people.

lyleinmb: $122.40 Barry at Knifeworks. I still will take my Buck Thud. Would like your review of the Thud. RIP RON HOOD.

DaPlague82: I love benchmade and the design of this knife is really good. Once I had it in my hand it made more sense to me based off of looks alone. However, I felt like the handle material and sheath design and material were lacking. Its as if they looked around the warehouse for what ever material they had the most of and said, "we'll use that up" It had benchmades fit and finish that we're used to, just the look of it is lacking to me. That being said, Im still keeping mind for collection purposes.

Equip 2 Endure LLC: Thanks for watching, I'll check your uploads for a better look at proper skills

attaboy5393: I'll take it off your hands if you like.

Equip 2 Endure LLC: The Spyderco is a bit thinner O1, and would be a more traditional bushcraft blade, while the Benchmade is of a higher quality steel and a bit more robust.

tsnorquist: That Gumby colored handle is just hideous. I'm not one who's into colors of gear and such, but it serves zero practicality. Make it bright orange if you're going for 1 single color. At least it'd be easy to find if you dropped it.

Tactical Bushcraft: I think the tip is too broad ... should be narrower for carving internal rads

Maddawwg45: correction wetterling hunters axe was 80 there now over 100 bucks i bought the sm hunters axe for 80 and a month later they had jumped up in price 20 bucks

TheGrizzlyHillbilly: i don't care who makes the knife, i ain't ever gonna pay that much for a knife unless its a Tracker.

Eddie Flores: Way to kill a tree bro.

Jerry Delmonico: Nice review. How much time have you spent with the knife?

lyleinmb: Thanks

chat2chann: Recommending checking out tops bob field knife. Sharp scandivex grind. Natural canvas micarta? You may be into it for bushcraft
