Benchmade continues their fine made-in-the-USA knifemaking tradition with the Model 100SH20 water knife. It’s a fixed blade design with a super corrosion-resistant steel blade, high-visibility yellow handle (also available in black for your stealthy types) and a versatile Kydex sheath.
The 3.23" partially-serrated blade is a modified sheepsfoot design, meaning the spine (not sharp) side drops down to meet the blade instead of the other way around. This minimizes the point, which is appropriate for a slicing blade used primarily in situations where it is desirable to minimize the risk of accidentally sticking yourself or the other poor schmuck.
The Model 100 has a perfect neutral balance and a solid in-hand feel without being heavy. The thumb-locked reversible sheath is nicely designed and supports multiple carry options. We’ve profiled Benchmade’s ERT-1 rescue tool designed for dry land head-ass inversion situations. If you’re worried about the same posture occurring in a 100% humidity environment the 100SH20 won’t let you down.
