Benchmade knives have carried a reputation for making quality knives for decades. But when Benchmade announced at the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show in Denver, CO, that they were coming out with a Puukko fixed blade knife, people lost their minds. The 200 Puukko is a modern approach to a traditional Finnish general purpose fixed blade, in 3V steel is a sleek, heavy-duty addition to Benchmade's Blue Class family of utilitarian knives.
The Puukko is everything you are looking for in a serviceable, utilitarian belt knife. With a full-tang construction of CPM-3V tool steel, the knife is extremely tough with a Rockwell hardness of 57-59. In this range, you can expect that the 3.75" blade can withstand a lot of punishment while at the same time being able to take and hold an edge cut after cut. The combination of the heat treatment and the 3V steel, the blade offers maximum resistance to chipping and breakage, while providing impact, shock, and wear resistance unmatched by other tool steels. Honed down from a stock thickness of .140" to a razor sharp cutting surface, this knife is more than capable of getting the job done. The drop-point blade is the perfect shape for a wide variety of bushcrafting, cooking and utility work. The design is simple yet elegant, without jimping, finger grooves or serrations to disrupt the aesthetic flow of the blade.
The textured Santoprene handle comes in Ranger Green to provide a sure grip in nearly any condition, wet or dry, while remaining exceptionally comfortable in the hand. The handle is an ample 4.5" with a lanyard hole at the butt for carrying options as well as a variety of paracord applications.

Blade is terrific. Handle works well, but not a fan of the color. Sheath is flat out dangerous. The fit is so loose, there is no retention.
