Benchmade spring assisted knives are a great option if you live in a place with automatic legal restrictions or you just like a little extra snap to your folding knives. Many people enjoy these spring opening knives because they offer the best of both the manual and automatic knife worlds. Check out the full Benchmade assisted opening collection or if you'd prefer us to narrow it down here are the top 5 Benchmade spring assisted knives at Blade HQ:
Benchmade assisted opening knives are perfect for everyday carry and offer snappy blade deployment. There's not too much difference between a spring assist and an auto except that instead of pushing a button you push on a flipper, thumb stud, or lever. The Benchmade Boost for instance is perfect if you like the opening action of an auto but enjoy thumb stud deployment. On the other hand the Arcane employs a low-profile blade flipper to activate the spring. Both offer great options depending on your opening preference. Another great assisted flipper model is the Vector, available in OD green or black G-10. The Barrage featured in the above video is the flagship of the Benchmade assisted line and has seen many variations including mini and full-size models. Add a little flair to your EDC rotation with a Benchmade spring assisted knife.
From Benchmade as of April 2021:
"Each new Benchmade knife is packaged with written documentation of the Benchmade Lifetime Warranty. Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. warrants to the original owner that Benchmade knives purchased from authorized dealers will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Benchmade will, without charge, repair or replace at our (Benchmade's) option, any knife purchased from an authorized dealer and returned for warranty work by its original owner that is found to be defective by Benchmade."
There's never a dull moment with a Benchmade... That's right! We will gladly re-sharpen your Benchmade knife to a factory razor sharp edge (service does not apply to any serrated portion of the blade). If you prefer us to sharpen your blade, or if you may have neglected to maintain your edge for a while, simply ship your knife to us. We'll not only sharpen it, but we will also inspect the knife for any warranted repairs and "tune" the knife for optimum performance.
We understand that our customers may want to modify their Benchmade knife to meet their own expectations. A modified knife will void the Lifetime Warranty, but we will still offer a limited version of our LifeSharp service to these modified knives. Specifically, we will not inspect, clean, repair or replace any parts for a modified knife as we do with our standard LifeSharp Service. We will only sharpen the blade (excluding aftermarket blades) and return the knife to the owner.
