Ultimate EDC, Semifinals: Blade 8 Recap

The Final Four

Round 2, Quarterfinal Results: (Bold Text designates winner)

MultiTool Division
Leatherman Skeletool (#4) vs. Victorinox SwissChamp (#2)

Under $100 Division
Benchmade 551 Griptilian (#3) vs. Kershaw 1660 Leek

Over $100 Division
Chris Reeve Small Sebenza (#1) vs. Spyderco ParaMilitary (#2)

Wild Card Division
Buck 110 (#1) vs. Benchmade 51 Morpho Butterfly (#2)

The Story So Far: UPSET ALERT! The king is dead! No offense to Chris Reeve fans, of course. The Small Sebenza was a beast and the #1 overall seed going into the tournament, but it couldn’t overcome the groundswell of support for Spyderco’s ParaMilitary2 and lost by a substantial 63-37 margin. Can the PM2 keep up the momentum against a surprisingly frisky Buck 110 out of the Wild Card Division? Meanwhile, the Skeletool and the Benchmade Griptilian were busy obliterating their competition on the other side of the bracket with nearly 80% of the vote. The two face off today in the semis; I’m excited to see who comes out on top.

Today’s match-ups:

Leatherman Skeletool (#4) vs. Benchmade 551 Griptilian (#3)

Spyderco ParaMilitary2 (#2) vs. Buck 110 (#1)
