What Benchmade says:
The seasoned hunter’s go-to hybrid fixed blade knife for trimming, deboning, and slicing game in the field, the new 15500-04 Meatcrafter variant gets to work with a six-inch CPM-154 stainless steel trailing point blade with a Stonewash finish, the perfect balance of wear resistance, corrosion resistance and toughness. The ergonomic Dark Olive Santoprene handle provides a sure grip in wet environments and its two-piece Boltaron® sheath gives you two color options for safe carry on your hip or pack, high-vis Orange or low-profile Gray for a more camouflaged approach. Engineered ultra-sharp with SelectEdge technology, the Meatcrafter is fine-tuned for effortless cuts from one hunt season to the next.
Quinn Knives' take:
The Meatcrafter is built for processing game back at camp, or slicing up that brisket around the cook fire, while being equally at home in the kitchen. No matter where you choose to use it, you'll love this high-quality, versatile blade.

CPM-154 WEAR RESISTANT STAINLESS STEEL (58-61 HRC)
This powder-metal version of conventional 154CM steel has a much finder microstructure with smaller carbide particles than its counterpart, resulting in improved toughness and strength.
A composite of vulcanized EPDM rubber and thermoplastic, this durable, molded material provides a sure grip in all conditions.
