New Rant Models from Benchmade

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.

You can find more information on the Benchmade website.

    I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on how these compare in both quality and functionality to ESEE

      Good question. I really like the folks who make ESEE products, their customer service, and warranty. I like the products themselves a great deal. I prefer the sheath systems to just about anything out there. However, they are just knives and if you can find something that costs less like these Benchmade Rants that work for you, they are at least worth a look. I think Jeff and Mike from ESEE would tell you the same thing – which is part of why I like them so much.
