Benchmade Upgrades Six Superb Fixed Blade Hunting Knives For 2020

Jul 9, 2020

Category: Gear

With the winter fully melted away and this year’s camping season now in full effect, Benchmade has unveiled a new collection of fixed-blade hunting knives from the Saddle Mountain Skinner and Hidden Canyon Hunter lineups.

Sold in leather sheaths, each knife is equipped with a full-tang drop-point-style blade that’s made from CPM-S30V steel. New ergonomically-optimized handles are paired with scales composed of stabilized wood and all boast lanyard loopholes at their base. The Saddle Mountain Skinner and Hidden Canyon are also available in more premium variants with Richlite and orange G10 scales, top-shelf S90V blades, and Boltaron heat-formed sheaths. There’s also a version of the Saddle Mountain Skinner with a 4.2” hook-equipped drop point blade. The knife that stands out most, however, is the Steep Country: an all-new stout hunting knife with Santoprene handles and a Boltaron sheath that’s designed to be a versatile all-year fixed blade. While no information on pricing has been released, all of the knives will become available for purchase on Benchmade’s website on July 27th, with the exception of the Steep Country which the Oregon outfit says is slated for a release in the following months.
