Benchmade & MeatEater Partner On A Hybrid Kitchen-Camp Carving Knife

Jun 8, 2020

Category: Gear

To say that Benchmade’s unique knives are purpose-driven, would be an understatement. The company has made a name for itself through its dedication and commitment to the utilitarian nature of its products, focusing on new, innovative ways to create the genre’s cutting-edge variants at rapid speed. Now, it’s announced the all-new 15500-1 Meatcrafter, a collaborative effort with MeatEater’s Steven Rinella, and a recipient of the brand’s proprietary SelectEdge technology.

While many of Benchmade’s knives are built for an EDC-focused audience, the brand also boasts a large selecting of unique, hybridized models tailor-made for hunters. Its most recent endeavor, the 15500-1 Meatcrafter, brings a handful of preparative attributes to the forefront, including CPM-S45VN steel, a 14-degree edge angle, and the new manufacturing process that applies the edge directly before leaving the factory. As a result, the Meatcrafter boasts one of the sharpest blades on the market. Eventually, that edge is going to wear down — but that’s where Benchmade’s SelectEdge tech comes into play. In under 5-10 strokes on a ceramic rod and leather strop, you’ll be able to return the 15500-1 to its former glory, allowing for a longer life of cutting, pushing, and slicing. Head to the company’s website to procure one of your own for $300.
