While a lot of western knife builders seem to think that bigger is better when it comes to fixed blades, the Scandinavians have been crafting incredibly effective compact survival knives for decades. And now, one of our favorite knife-making brands is getting onboard with the trend. Allow us to introduce you to the Benchmade 200 Puukko knife.
With an unmistakable silhouette synonymous with the European north, this blade still meets the rigorous standards Benchmade has set for themselves – including an ultra-high quality CPM-3V steel blade (the best the brand has to offer) and a rubberized Santoprene handle. As versatile as it is portable, this superb outdoor-focused survival knife is certain to be a favorite amongst adventurers and bushcraft enthusiasts alike. Paired with a premium leather sheath, the 200 Puukko will run for $145 once it’s made available to purchase.
