  Benchmade fixed blade steel dive knife
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Feb-24-13 1:52 AM (EST)
 

Not sure why I'm so interested in this topic since I'm not in the market for a knife, but I like knives.

If I wanted a fixed blade PFD dive knife with a click sheath, I'd think seriously about the Benchmade 110H20, a video review of which I've linked below.

It's high quality corrosion resistant N680 stainless steel with a 3.43" blade and a grippy Santoprene handle. It is plain edge to hold the sharpest possible edge, or it also comes in a combo edge. It has a prying/digging tip and and a strap/rope cutting notch, and it only weighs 3.1 oz. Benchmade also has a lifetime sharpening service (only for plain edge knives) where you only pay for the shipping back and forth to them.

This knife should give multi-use service as a PFD "rescue" knife, a camp knife and a kitchen knife.

Shop around and you can probably find it heavily discounted. Or you can register on the Benchmade site as a serviceman, peace officer or law official and get it from the manufacturer for $73.50.

The combo edge is not shown on the video, but you can see it on the Benchmade site. BM probably won't sharpen the serrated half under its Lifesharp service. Ask.
