When you reach the end of the blood trail, you go from hunter to chef. Responsibility to the animal is key. Field dress the carcass, get it cooled down, keep everything clean, haul it out.
Back home, the meat hanging in your garage, you’re already imagining a year’s worth of food for you, your family, and your friends. It was the right blend of dedication and gear that got you to this point; there’s no excuse for getting careless or taking shortcuts now. Which knife are you gonna reach for?
This is a serious knife designed specifically for handling wild game.
MeatEater’s Steven Rinella and the Benchmade Knife Company have collaboratively designed the Meatcrafter Knife over the last eighteen months. Together, they bring you the best boning, processing, and cooking knife available on the market. Every single Meatcrafter Knife is assembled, sharpened, and finished in the hands of trained cutlers at Benchmade’s factory in Oregon City, Oregon—all with materials sourced within the United States of America.
The precision and flex of a fillet knife with the strength and maneuverability of a boning knife.
This is a serious knife designed specifically for handling wild game. Every aspect of the product has been carefully designed to create a top-of-the-line boning knife with great edge retention, the perfect kind of flex, balance and durability—something that will stand the test of time.
Still, you might be saying, “Holy shit, $300? That's pretty steep.” That's true, and as an essential part of your kit, we think it's worth it. We believe this is the best boning knife ever made in America. Here's why:
We stand by this knife, 100%. Like every knife built by Benchmade, it is covered by a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.
The S45VN steel blade is easy to hone and maintain at home with a few swipes over a ceramic rod and leather strop. But if the edge should get dinged or dulled against bone, all you need to do is mail it in to Benchmade’s popular LifeSharp Service. They’ll clean, oil, adjust, and re-sharpen your knife for free and even mail it back at no charge.
