I just ordered this knife on Sunday. And it already came in the mail today on Wednesday. So hats off to the quick process in which I got this knife. Next. Pre ordering when looking at the knife online it looks like a very large knife. Even when u read it's under 9" and u watch videos with nothing to eye size wise to it. I didn't know what to expect. But now that it's here. WOW. to give u a size thought. I have great eastern knifes. And this knife is just a hair longer than the #23 pioneer jack. Length wise. The blade is thicker from cutting edge to spine.By about a 3/8" or so. Handle is about the same size. My guess is if I got the hunter pattern. It would be very close to the same size overall to my #23. Now for weight it is just a hair lighter than the #23. Overall it is a great looking. Very sharp. Smaller than it looks in all pics and vids I've seen. And way better than what I was expecting for size. I wanted something smaller than my bear grylls survival pro knife and weighs alot less for backpacking. And this knife is definitely it. Price is up there for top of what I want to pay for a knife. But. Now that I have it. It's everything that I wanted and was looking for. For a while now. In a edc fixed blade knife. I'm looking forward to using it alot. Especially since fire arms deer season in indiana comes in in 2 weeks. If u have read this. Do yourself a favor. Buy it. It's not as big a knife as what it looks. Feels awesome in hand. And is not just a hunting knife. I'm very glad I pulled the trigger and got one. And hey. It's benchmade. Hope this helps.
Excellent blade and amazingly beautiful handle that feels great in the hand.
