Introducing: THE KNOCKOFF
The near deadringer for Benchmade's Skirmish.
The Skirmish blade is S30V, while the NAVY is 440C. The Skirmish comes with Aluminum handles, the NAVY G-10.
Length and weight are within half ounces and inches of one another.
Having worked with Hugh Gene Slaughter's Skirmish for the past two weekends, I can attest to the NAVY's balance and cutting ability that brings it a second but a damned close second.
Excluding shipping, Hugh Gene shelled out $190. I spent $4.25.
