Benchmade got its start in 1979 as Balisong Inc. After a series of expansions and reorganizations, the company ultimately became Benchmade. The name reflects the fact that, while state-of-the-art materials and processes are used to produce the components, every pocket knife is assembled and checked by human hands.
Benchmade makes pocket knives of all shapes and sizes, including folding knives, fixed blade knives, balisongs, and automatic knives. The video below highlights some of the best Benchmade automatic knives on the market.
