Review by the Northwest Horse Source Magazine…
This is a knife like no other. Its quality, comfort and ease of use make it a necessary tool for every horseman’s tack box. Proudly made in Oregon City, Oregon, this tool demonstrates the quality and ingenuity that American manufacturing still offers. While lightweight and easy-to-use, its compact design and easy-grip handle make it convenient for that job that requires a very sharp, steel blade and safety hook, which is ideal for removing bandaging material from your leg wraps. No need for scissors. This dynamic triple utility tool includes a knife, safety hook and glass breaker. Specifications: Blade Length 3.50″ (8.89cm); blade thickness 0.130″ (3.02mm); open8.20″ (20.82cm); closed 4.70″ (11.93cm); weight 5.10oz (144.58g); handle thickness 0.53″ (13.46mm). Retail price is from $165 to $180. For more information contact Benchmade Knife Company, Oregon City, OR. 1-800-800-7427, www.benchmade.com or [email protected].
