In mid-2020, with the partnership of the Benchmade Knife Company, MeatEater launched the original MeatCrafter Knife–the culminating monument of 18 months of collaborative design and testing, combined with the life experience of master hunter and outdoorsman, Steven Rinella. Two years later, we’re excited to release the latest rendition of this superb hunting and cooking tool. The MeatCrafter® Knife 2.0 is simply the best boning, processing, and cooking knife available on the market. Every single Meatcrafter® Knife is assembled, sharpened, and finished in the hands of trained cutlers at Benchmade’s factory in Oregon City, Oregon—all with materials sourced within the United States of America.
This is a serious knife designed specifically for handling wild game. Every aspect of the product has been carefully designed to create a top-of-the-line boning knife that holds great edge retention, can flex around a femur, delicately trim silver skin, and slice cleanly through big hunks of meat—and do it all well.
There are already a great many hunting knives on the market, but your needs in the field are different than those in the garage or the kitchen. We promise, come November when a deer is hanging from the rafters in your garage once again, you’ll be looking forward to breaking out your Meatcrafter® and going to work.
Every Benchmade purchase comes with a lifetime warranty and Lifesharp service, which guarantees Benchmade will re-sharpen your knife to a factory edge for free. Visit Benchmade’s Lifesharp page for more details and instructions on how to send in your knife.
