Benchmade & Jared Oeser Link Up Again For A Mini Flipper Knife Multi-Tool

Jun 4, 2020

Back in January, the renowned knifemakers at Benchmade unveiled the Tengu flipper knife: a traditional EDC flipper made from more contemporary materials, as well as the Oregon City outfit’s first-ever collaboration with Utah-based knife-maker and designer, Jared Oeser. So after receiving a warm public reception upon its release, Benchmade has now announced another Oeser-designed offering with the new Tengu Tool knife.

While the Tengu Tool has already been available as a custom knife from Oeser, Benchmade will now mass-produce a slightly modified version of the item under its own banner, using novel materials. Just like with the original full-size Benchmade Tengu, the new Tengu Tool sports a pair of G10 handles and a CPM 20CV steel tanto blade (with a 59-61 HRC rating), albeit it’s 1.63” shorter and boasts a markedly stubbier profile, measuring just 1.14”. The full-size Tengu’s crest-shaped white inlay appears on the Tool-version, as well. The new compact knife’s monicker stems from the item’s inclusion of a bottle-opener (that can likely double as a screwdriver in a pinch) that folds out opposite the squat tanto. Sold in a black leather sheath with white stitching, the Benchmade Tengu Tool has been priced at $180, with deliveries scheduled to commence this summer.

Purchase: $180
