The Rant series from Benchmade is one of my favorite inexpensive fixed blade knife options. They have comfortable handles, functional sheaths, and very versatile blade shapes. Until recently, Benchmade offered the Rant with either a Drop Point or Bowie blade profile. Now they have released two new blade profiles: Tanto and Clip Point.
All 4 blade profiles are 4.48″ long, .170″ thick, and have an overall length of 9.11″. They are ground from 440C steel. My experiences with Benchmade’s 440C have all been very positive. The included MOLLE compatible sheath is very functional.
