Knife Review Video of the Week - Benchmade 950 Rift Knife

This week's Knife Review Video of the Week is: Benchmade 950 Rift Knife Review

The Benchmade 950 Rift has a 3.67 inch 154CM blade featuring Warren Osborne's trademark reverse tanto point. The blade is flat ground, with the grind starting somewhat between FFG and saber ground. The reverse tanto provides a strong tip that the tanto provides, while retaining a functional belly. The belly combined with the almost fully flat ground makes it a hell of a slicer. The tanto tip provides strength to the tip, and unlike conventional belief, the tanto tip does not make it a good all-around piercer, but instead helps introduce most of the width of the knife very quickly. This makes the best of use of the short time when the power of the stabbing motion is as its peak.

The Rift from Benchmade is a strikingly stylish knife, with a patterned G10 handle and reverse tanto blade, the Rift folding knife is a work of art as well as a workhorse.

Reverse tanto for toughness, large-bellied blade for utility cutting, and textured G10 handle scales help you get a firm grip on any situation.
