Crooked River Family

Product Review (submitted on January 31, 2019):
This is my 2nd Benchmade, though I’ve shoppped in-person thoroughly, now that I’ve carried the full size Crooked River it is hands down my favorite piece Benchmade or otherwise. First, it is simply gorgeous, the symmetry, the wood handle, the lines. The mechanics are superb, out of the box I added 1 drop of gun oil to work into the Axis lock and it is perfectly smooth now. The blade is a razor from the factory, flawless, and as a whole perfectly balanced. Some argue the size is slightly beyond a convenient EDC, I don’t disagree entirely but I adjusted fine and now feels natural, preferably with the deep carry clip. Best knife in my collection, easily my EDC, used for everything, and constantly a topic of discussion for all who see it!
