I purchased my first Benchmade knife yesterday as I needed a new EDC knife. I have owned several competitor knives and the EDC knife that this North Fork is replacing is one that just didn't stand up to EDC. The build quality of this Benchmade knife is incredible. The Stabilized Wood scales look beautiful and they seem to have fantastic grip in my hands. The factory edge on the blade is excellent out of the box. If this North Fork is any indication, I plan to buy other Benchmade knives to add to my collection. I would gladly recommend Benchmade Knives to anyone.

I have been looking and looking for a great every day carry knife. I stumbled across the North Fork and since the second it hit my hand, I knew it was the right knife. Man was I right. This is an amazing knife. It is absolutely gorgeous. The blade shape, size, and material is perfect. The handle looks and feels incredible. I get so many compliments on this knife. And here is the best part: It performs as good as it looks and feels. You will not find a quality of knife as this one. The Axis locking system has made a believer out of me. And for all you lefties out there, it works just as good lefty or righty. It is a bit spendy but worth every cent. Go check it out and I tell you that you will go North as well. North Fork that is!

The North Fork with Dymondwood scales was my first Benchmade. I bounced back and forth between this model and a competitors knife for awhile, but decided to give Benchmade a try. Ive been so pleased with this knife that I'm now awaiting my forth Benchmade. This particular model is a nearly perfect EDC for me. The size and weight are great, S30v steel is easy to keep sharp (rarely need anything more than my strop block), the action is smooth, and I really like the look. Im very pleased with this knife and would definitely recommend it to others.

I've used everything from Gerber to CRKT and Kershaw.They all have an impressive edge straight out of the box. However, the true test of a knife is to skin a seasons worth of deer with it and see if it's still got the shame razor sharp, arm-shaving edge on the blade without needing to resharpen.The competition needs sharpening after every other deer. This is my second Arkansas hunting season with Benchmade Hunt. 8 deer later and I've got the same edge I started with out of the box. You can't beat the S30V Steel.I haven't sharpened it yet I will likely take advantage of the lifesharp warranty at the end of this season just to give it an overall "checkup" from the factory and let the pros sharpen it. I will never use another brand of knife again. I give them five stars and two thumbs up!

I have a very extensive collection of what ranges from fully custom fixed blades and flippers to Swiss Army knives and ballisongs. But there was something about this little flipper.

First, the amazing look of the dymondwood handle down to the great ergonomic feel. Second, the amazing quality of s30v. It holds an edge like no other and withstood every element I had thrown at it with ease. Lastly, it just had the sex appeal, usability and everything I could possibly hope for in an "edc" flipper.

I lost it! As I said before I own many knives but losing this one I had carried every day for two years hurt. More than it should.

I will buy a new one at some point but it's a lot like my dog passing. It's hard to just want to replace something you've invested so much time, care and bonded with so much.
I romanticize about how it wore the few very small rust spots I proudly had obtained over time like beautiful patina freckles. I miss the small cracks in the dymondwood handle it wore like battle scars. I adored this flipper so much it almost doesn't feel right to replace it.

I have had this knife for 4 or 5 years. It holds an edge like nothing else I have ever owned. I use this knife every day for various things, it is always in my pocket. Today I lost it! Bummer. I have to have another. I have owned many knives. This one was something special.

The best stainless steel folder I've ever owned, hands down. Ive carried this knife for a while now 2-3 years or so every single day since I got it I don't exactly remember how long I've had the knife. The dymond wood handle grips well in all conditions and is extremely tough. The blade is exceptionally well shaped for slicing and that S30V stainless is exceptional, I've gotten tree sap on the blade and didn't clean it and the sap just dried up and came off the blade could be the coating I put on it when I clean it but I've never had a knife not rust from that. It sharpens up well and that axis lock is strong but we all know about the axis lock. If your looking for a good work/hunting/fishing folding knife just get the knife and find out for your self.

Light super sharp and elegant, it's perfect hunting blade for pre season work or if you forgot your cleaning kit can slice up you're game right in the woods, it deploys easily and locks up super tight, would almost think it was a liner lock instead of a axis lock, all In all I've been impressed with it.
