If you are reading this, you're on the right site. Bought this knife from an authorized dealer and could not possibly be happier, perfect edc knife. Steel is strong, blade angle is perfect, and the look of the "wood" grip is awesome. Only thing I wanted to change was to get a deep carry clip, and after looking online I was expecting to drop another 30$+. After calling Benchmade customer service and speaking with some of the nicest customer service reps ever, they sent me a clip on the house right away! Unbelievable! If you want unparalleled quality for the price and amazing customer service, look no further than Benchmade.

This is my new EDC. Worth the money. I love the size and stabilized wood handle. Very well built. Benchmade has Great customer service too. I prefer deep carry pocket clips, so I called them and they mailed me one for free! No hassle at all.

Look, I know Benchmade knives aren't inexpensive, but as with most cases, you get what you pay for. I love this knife; smooth action, clip is perfect, and it's sharp! And it's just damned good looking. I consider this knife to be a legacy piece that my son will be using when I'm gone: that's how much I believe in the quality of this knife. Get it, you won't be disappointed. I will be getting another Benchmade soon, the only problem is which one to get!

I have purchased both models of the North Fork. I started with the G-10 model and I liked it so much I purchased the stabilized wood model. Both knives were delivered razor sharp out of the box. With a little lube and practice they open with a flick of the wrist and close just as easily. The fit and finish are Benchmade grade A. My only wish is that they came with a deep pocket carry clip as standard. I had to lay out an additional $50 to a third party to get the deep clips for both. Other than the pocket clip, I have no complaints. These are great EDC knives that also fit right into the woods with you.

I gave this knife all 5 stars. With that being said, I believe it’s easy to assume I love it. The look, the feel, the operation, the materials. All amazing. But, if I paid full price, I probably would have taken a star off for price. I paid $120 and if I paid $165, I would probably be less happy about the price.

This is the best knife I own. I was considering either this or the ZT 0450, but when I got to the store, this just felt right. I’ve had it for 2 days now and the axis lock has broken in nicely and the s30v is a large step up from my previous edc that had VG10. I am going to take this everywhere. Wranglerstar on YouTube posted a video about how he could t love without his 940 and how superior the axis lock was, and I thought it was crazy but now I get it. Why would you use anything but this.

Purchased the north fork a few days ago and can't keep it out of my hand. Had a Kershaw prior, this is a much better blade. I highly recommend it.

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.
