The Benchmade Mini Grip is an all-time classic. I love the knife. But, well, it is a bit muggly. Its indistinct jelly bean shape ain’t going to catch an eye, but its in-hand feel and superior design makes up for it. Compare that to a recent knife to be added to the review queue, The James Brand Carter, and the Mini Grip is downright homely. The Benchmade Mini Grip is a Dad with his golf shirt tucked into khaki cargo shorts and a leather cellphone holster. The James Brand Carter is Cary Grant.
But but but…its a hipster knife from a hipster brand. Yes, yes it is. But…so what? Thanks to a partnership with Gallantry the Carter and the Duval are in for review and you know what, the Carter has some really impressive design details.
I love the title. Still not sold on the knives, but closer than I was before reading this.
