I hesitated buying the North Fork because it was classified as a hunting knife and I wanted an EDC knife. But once I wrapped my fingers around one in store, I knew immediately that it would make a great EDC knife. It just felt so comfortable in the hand. An EDC knife is one you'll use almost every day. And since you'll be holding it in your hand almost every day, shouldn't it feel comfortable holding it every time and for the entire time you're performing your task of cutting, carving, or whittling? I bought the Dymond Wood handle version and I couldn't be happier with it.

Bought this at a local outdoor store this morning. I'm very impressed with the quality up front. The wood grain is beautiful and the feel of it is great. The shape is comfortable and useful. Jimping in all the right places. I especially like the jimping near the end of the blade. I'll be asking Benchmade for a deep carry clip, but the provided clip is nice and clips strongly. My use thus far is limited, but I can already tell this is a great knife.

This is the best Bench made in my opinion. For the price it can't be beat. The handles are absolutely beautiful. The ergos are also amazing on this knife.

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!
