Benchmade’s Bone Collector series of knives are developed and designed in collaboration with Michael Waddell. Michael Waddell is a renowned outdoorsman from Booger Bottom, Georgia. Growing up without the common creature comforts that most people are used to today, Michael Waddell is one of the hardcore hunters that has designed utility tools that are actually very useful in the wild. And the Bone Collector series of knives are exactly that. Bone Collector knives all feature a D2 steel blade that is one of the best when it comes to outdoors application because of its optimum toughness as well as great ability to keep an edge after a long time of abuse. D2 steel is the kind of steel used to cut other steels so you know that it’s no push over. Most of the Bone Collector series of knives are folders but there are also fixed blade ones. Since these knives are used for hunting or camping tasks, they are plain edged knives that are perfect for game preparation. The contoured G-10 or walnut handles makes the handle not only strong but very light as well. After all, you’re carrying quite some pounds of gear already; you do not need a heavy knife. Each of the Bone Collector series of knives comes in south of $100 which makes them just perfect for pretty much everyone. These affordable knives are some of the very best in their price range and Benchmade made sure of that.
The Bone Collector series of knives also includes specialized knives like the gut hook. Although it is true that some hunting knives come with a built-in gut hook, the Benchmade Waddell's Bone Collector Gut Hook is designed not to pierce anything. This is a common problem with most built-in gut hooks that the tip of the hook is actually sharp that it can easily pierce the stomach or intestines which can contaminate the meat. This is not going to be a problem with the Benchmade Waddell's Bone Collector Gut Hook though since the tip rounded. There are also some knives in the Bone Collector series that are perfect for filleting and skinning like the Benchmade Michael Waddell's Bone Collector Skinner 15000S and 15000S-1. Their thin long blade makes it possible for you to get that control you need when skinning or filleting. The whole Benchmade Bone Collector series are designed for the avid hunter in you and they will not disappoint.
