LES DE ASIS - BENCHMADE KNIVES
Benchmade was founded by Les De Asis and remains one of the premier knife manufacturers in the industry. Les first set out to make butterfly knives that would be worthy to replace the cheap balisongs he owned. He took his high school shop skills to task and created a butterfly knife that Victor Anselmo helped finish. As they say, the rest is history.
Benchmade strives to focus on customer needs, innovation, responsible business practices and operations so they can bring quality products to the world's collectors. Each Benchmade knife is backed by an amazing warranty and sports a fit and finish that is worthy of every knife enthusiast's pocket.
