Benchmade’s Tengu Flipper EDC Knife Blends Classic Style & Modern Materials

Jan 21, 2020

Category: Gear

Benchmade’s high-quality knives have enamored EDC and outdoor enthusiasts since 1979, and over the past four decades, the company’s approach to utilitarian designs has become all-the-more focused. With a catalog of well-rounded variants, and even more in the works, the California brand is a fan favorite for respectable knife design. And now, they’ve partnered with revered knife maker Jared Oeser for the Tengu Flipper.

The Tengu Flipper is an aesthetically-pleasing model that blurs the line between Benchmade and Oeser’s differing design terminologies. As the first-ever collaboration between the two, the Tengu takes on an air of significance and solicits an EDC-oriented, 2.77-inch tanto blade for use within a variety of different gear sets. The knife’s illustrious blade is made from CPM 20CV steel, complementing its satin-finish and scaled G10 handle, while a thrust bearing pivot gifts it a reliable action for intuitive open and close. A liner lock has been added as an additional safety measure, making the knife a great addition to any specialist’s kit. Look for the knife to release via Benchmade’s website on March 10th for $220.
