Benchmade 162 Bushcraft Sibert Test And Review By Equip 2 Endure




What do you think about this video?

Тим Карамболь: The knife is good! But I cannot buy it in Russia! 

ExhaustedNYC: One of my friends own this knife and on our canoe trip last week and I got to use it a little bit. In all honesty, I'm glad I don't own this knife. I'm into bushcraft and this knife as it is advertised as a bushcraft knife, any decent bushcrafter would stay the hell away from it IMO. I can see it used as a backup survival blade although it's a bit shorter. If you are into carving like I am, don't get this knife. My wrist was in pain after like only 20 mins with it and all I did was feather-sticking. Didn't even go into any detail carving like I always do. The design itself is very bad. It won't make any deep cuts because of its grind and crapty geometry. You won't feel any weight at the blade itself which makes it harder to control in a long carving process and also because of that it doesn't slice well. And don't even get me started on the sheath, it's an abomination, a big F.U to all decent sheath makers. It felt like I was cutting through it every time I was putting it in and out. SMH. Ok there's my rant for today. 

John Kenneally: I cant skip the adds no more WOW! Great job brother Adam. You and this knife are the reason I fell in love with bushcraft. I made a pouch out of a tool belt for a bushcraft project. because I wasnt sure what bushcraft was I just seen your contest vid & was just getting into it so I thought I needed a pouch & I thought it was bushcraft lol. But what I got from that contest is better than any knife. So thank you now on to watch the video of the knife that started it all for me for the first time. Thanks again.

mjb skwim: Kids using knives for thing that AXES were meant for. Funny stuff

paulie 4x: Just wondering if the knife got some bad reviews, it seems to me it's not, and the price is growing, I guess I'm just lucky, my sheath fits the knife great, and again, mine is a first production run, I like it, now I have 9 great bushcraft knives, I have the Busse Son of Badger, John Bradley's "Worlds Best Camp Knife, Rod Garcias Skookum Bush Tool, the Sisu by Cold Steel, Gerber Freeman Stag in S30V, a G.E.K. custom knife, made out of saw steel, Bokor 4 " recurve in 440C, Blind Horse in 0-1, Benchmade #162, I still have hope for a Bushlore, and who knows what else comes along. Oh yeah, a Canadian Belt Knife, made in Germany, can remember whos, it's stag handle, but made out of carbon, so it's 10 now.

Vincent Fernandez: Nice review dude. Thanks much.

paulie 4x: Great knife, I have a first production run model, like I said great knife, I paired my Benchmaid #162 with a H.I. M-43 Khukuri, and the Bokor 2011 Vox Production, with my Silky Bigboy #2000 I'm set to go, some complain about the holes in the handle, no big deal I got used to mine, a piece of tap would work.

Steve R: Adam, Honestly the most useful and helpful knife review I've ever seen. I was looking at buying this knife, mainly as a deer hunting knife but secondly as an all around woods/camping knife. Is there a knife you'd recommend over it (in the same price range)? I liked the weight and feel of this knife when I held it, and have a lot of faith in the S30V BenchMade blade, but you seem vastly more knowledgable than I so I'd like to check out any other recommendations before purchasing. Thanks!

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

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

Yvan Bertucci: Did you cut a living tree ?

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.

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

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

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!

Young Gunners87: 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 Veylupek: 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.

CLong: 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.
