Benchmade Knives showed off its latest little fixed blade that’s designed for heavy use.
The Steep Country – Benchmade’s newest addition to the Hunt Series -- stood out to me at Modern Day Marine 2014.
It features a strong-looking 3.5 inch S30V steel blade and a non-slip, molded rubber handle.
“Everything about this particular knife is about skinning and outdoor utility,” said Benchmade’s Shane James.
The Steep Country retails for $115. There’s also a version with a gut hook on top of the blade that can be used for cutting utility cord or seatbelts in an emergency. It retails for $125.
Both versions are available in either black or orange handles and come with a belt sheath.
