Benchmade 698 Foray Knife Review

Buy it here: http://shrsl.com/?~cvb3
The Foray is a handsome, capable new knife from Benchmade. It has lots of aesthetic features not found on previous models, and includes the new CPM 20CV steel—which is excellent.

Nice review! Thanks for posting! I recently purchased a Benchmade 535 Bugout as my first EDC knife other than several Victorinox that I've been carrying for years.
Love the 535, and I've been watching lots of reviews and shopping for my next folder! Not that I really need another! LOL!! The Foray is definitely in contention! Beautiful knife!

How would sharpening the knife with the edge pro apex be? Would it not come out very good because of the s curve?

Remember that over the griptilian line the 698 should be a stronger knife overall with a full steel frame in difference to the abbreviated frame of the large griptilian. The small grippie has a full frame as well!

Not sure if it was deliberate, the the comparison to the Nakamura was somehow overlooked. In size, price, and weight they aren't very far apart. I own both and TBH, I'm not sure which I like better. I carry the Nakamura more, but still love my Foray. Both of them are on my do not touch list. I'll die with those knives in my possession, along with my KSF exlcusive Stryker.

Feels a bit heavier than i thought it should but over all one of the best knives I own for sure . Awesome review man thanks

Because of its handle to blade length ratio, it bites me a lot when close flicking. I had 5 bites in the same spot fr being negligent. Still my fav blade though

Great review. I especially like the size comparison you showed between the foray, mini-grip and full size griptilian. It really helped me to decide if it was right for me. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. I"M GETTING THIS KNIFE!!!
