This Benchmade 7 BLKW rescue cutter is an incredible little tool that can rip and tear almost anything (that fits under the hook) apart in an instant. The only product that you can really compare this to is the smaller Benchmade 5 hook, both of which are at the top of all strap and cloth cutters. Benchmade 7hook: 4.3 Inches long, 1.6 oz hook and 3.2 oz with nylon sheath. Benchmade 5hook: 2.9 Inches long, 1.2 oz hook and 1.8 oz with nylon sheath.
Retains edge well
Extra size makes it more comfortable to use than the Benchmade 5
High quality nylon sheath
Sheath makes for fast deployment
Jimping bites well into the fingers
440 Stainless steel is very resistant to corrosion
Cheaper than the Benchmade 5 (When I ordered mine it was 5 dollars cheaper with free shipping)
Vinyl grip makes the Benchmade 7 much more comfortable than the 5
Tears through almost anything like butter
Not as portable as the Benchmade 5
Lacks the oxygen wrench and bottle opener of the Benchmade 5
Cannot sharpen with a standard flat whetstone
