The Benchmade 15085-2, or Benchmade Mini Crooked River, is a new EDC pocket knife that attempts to mirror traditional styles but still offer modern technology. Designed as a tool to challenge the notions of what a hunting knife should be, the Benchmade Mini Crooked River features a mostly aluminum construction and stabilized "Dymondwood" handles. The blade is constructed from premium CPM-S30V steel and is featured in a classic clip-point shape. A hi-vis orange G10 version of the knife is also available and simply replaces the Dymondwood handles with something easier to identify.
In terms of features, the Mini Crooked River incorporates modern elements such as an ambidextrous thumb stud and AXIS lock mechanism. The pocket clip offers a tip-up carrying style and the total closed length of the knife is 4.5”.
