While you may not think twice about mounting a wilderness excursion without your Benchmade knife, what about a more domestic adventure, like the kitchen? Benchmade has a knife for that. These knives may not include typical Benchmade features like a locking mechanism, pocket clip or sheath, but what they lack in outdoor grit the three knife Benchmade 4501 Prestigedges ($500) set does make up in meal preparing refinement — and culinary gadget badassery. The set includes an 8″ chefs knife, 6″ utility knife and 3.5″ paring knife all made of full-tang 440C stainless steel blades and hand-finished black micarta winewood handles with hand-polished handle rivets. The knives, of course, are fully stabilized for balance, pose and world class cutting. It’s time to crank mundane prep work up a notch.
