This is my first of many Benchmade Knives and I can truly say I will probably be passing it on to my kids. If I don't get greedy. The Tanto is easy to sharpen and holds an edge well. The black finish protects the blade and has done it's job well. The serration is effective at everything from rope to flesh. Very happy with this knife. Thank you, Benchmade.
I had this knife customised to my liking and it was a great decision. It preforms amazingly, holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen. It has a wicked edge right out of the box and will cut through anything, and hold up great to any task you throw it at. I use it daily outdoors and in and it barely looks any different than the day i bought it 2 years ago and I've only had to sharpen it a few times. Benchmade hit it home with this original product, nothing like it and worth more than the money you are paying.
