Hands down(or up) this is one of the best knives I've owned. And that's owning several benchmade and other arachnids. Would recommend to anyone that asks
I Love This Knife
Thomas W.
I have been sitting on the fence for awhile thinking about this knife. I own a bunch of auto's, Protech, Microtech, Kershaw, Piranha, Spyderco and although I love my Benchmade folder/flippers I just did not expect this CLA to be that great. It was not cheap either. Now that I have it I can't put it down. It had a little vertical play but I was able to adjust that out and it's fine now. This knife is definitely near the top of my auto collection. Good job Benchmade.
Awesome Knife
Dale H.
This is my 1st Benchmade and I love it. High quality steel blade, light and durable grip. Well made, extremely sharp out of the box. Opening is quick and forceful. Blade does not wiggle at all. Highly recommend this knife!
Fantastic knife
Alan E.
Very impressed with the quality and the attention to detail on this knife. It's light but tough. This is my second benchmade, the other automated knife I received when I was with the Police Dept. about 20yrs ago. It still works just like the day I got it. The people at Blade HQ, are very helpful and the lady I talked with went out of her way to make sure I got the knives I wanted. (more knives are on the way).
New #1
Cody W.
I've owned many benchmade knives over the years and still do. I am a heavy researcher and know what I want. The CLA is clearly my new favorite. It is perfectly sized, balanced, and it opens strong. The G10 handle is exceptional just like my Volli. The CLA is rock solid and ready to work. Another fine product by fine craftsmen.
Great knife
Jim S.
I have quite a few benchmades and others but this knife is a notch above. It's fast, well made and very light. The blade is the perfect size for pocket carry and it's extremely easy to sharpen and it holds an edge very well. Very strong.
