Full review of the Benchmade Pardue Hunter with cutting demo and some bushcraft tasks.
I had the opportunity to handle one. Super comfortable and I agree on the sheath. The price is steep on this one. $190 for a s30v foxed is steep. Survive knives are in that range and offer 3v. I’d like to see it more around the $125 mark
does this knife have a sharp spine / 90 degree? would it work for shaving fat wood / ferro rod?
How does the texture compare to esee scales
90 degree spine?
Nice review Rev, keep’em coming !!
Hey Rev. I was wondering if you think it could be a neck knife? Would it be too big or heavy? Or do you think it could work?
Can you make a comparison of this to some of your other knives?
Thanks for reviewing this – so few “knife guys” review fixed blade hunting knives, and I’m always looking for something new. A few comments tho… I know, I know – can’t do it now – season’s over, but I really like to have hands on reviews after actually cleaning a deer with a knife: 1) mostly I like the blade shape but might want a little more drop in the point when opening up a deer, thoughts? Also I typically pull a knife up through the sternum to get into the chest, and sometimes on a small deer go through a hip joint. From what I hear (but don’t know as fact) S30V is “chippy” – I really would like to have info on how it deals with something as tough as bone before laying out Benchmade kind of $$$! 3) how controllable is it when changing grips with wet hands in the cavity? 4) how easy is it to clean the inevitable gunk from those handle holes? I think I might prefer some other construction. 5) Noting I’m not a huge fan of a leather sheath for a hunting knife – though most of mine have leather, I have had to come to carrying a plastic bag to store the “icky” knife as opposed to “greasing up” the sheath – not easy to clean afterwards! Would love to see these kind of issues brought up in future hunting knife videos, but keep up the good work!
Hey Rev! Saweet new blade from BM! Could I tag you in an upcoming tag video I am doing about EDC knives?
First of all- you do great reviews! And yeah this knife looks beautifully functional!
