Love the blade!! Perfect amount of handle and blade. Probably should have waited and tried the mini first before getting this one. This is a huge heavy tank of a knife!!!! But I love it!!
Awesome Blade!
Darren R.
Love the handle and blade shape is great for many different tasks. Steel is also way better than the 154cm in my Presidio 1. Finally, this one has the smoothest action of any of my Benchmades without having any blade play at all (and without the sticky Axis lock some of my others have).
Great knife for the money
Isaac H.
When you hold this knife in your hand you can feel value it provides. Really strong construction and the knife really feels like a tank. It is alittle heavy but if your looking at this knife you aren’t that concerned about weight. I EDC it no problem. Buy it!
Second Benchmade

This is my second benchmade. I wanted to try out their aluminum scaled knives because I had heard that they were tough and wow... It was better than I expected. It does have a little heft to it because of the steel liners and large blade but Ive found that in pocket it isn't uncomfortable. Also, just so people know this is a large knife. I have large hands and this fits perfectly with a little handle to spare. So comfortable and secure in hand. Finally, for being a tank it is surprisingly good at slicing and piercing, similar to the barrage actually. But all in all, well worth it.
Outdoor knife

This knife is a tank. You will definitely notice it in your pocket but it is meant to stand up to anything. I wouldn't recommend as an EDC but I would highly recommend it as a camping knife. It will stand up to any task and it has great traction so if your hands are wet you'll still be able to get a good hold on the knife.
Absolutely love this knife
Christopher d.
Benchmade is my favorite knife company this is by far my favorite edc knife. It feels great in hand razor sharp stong blade .if you are thinking of getting this blade do so . You Will love this knife
Buy this knife!

I did not buy this knife from Blade HQ. Sorry guys, I bought it from my local knife shop, but I love your YouTube videos. But back to the knife this knife is as tough as the Adamas but as elegant as and useful as the 940. I've had it for Two months and I can't find any knife to compare it with. It cuts well, it penetrates well and it has a little heft( but this does not bother me). You need to buy this knife! Benchmade hit a home run!
Excellent knife, good for everything.
Kurt B.
This knife is tough as hell and will be able to do absolutely everything you would need a knife for. Strong lock, strong handle, and a strong blade with nice long flats for strength all the way out to the tip. Still manages to use very reasonable 1/8" stock so it cuts well, too. Nice and hand filling, very comfortable to use though a little heavy if that bothers you. Very nice package overall, a little bit of lock stick is normal for a brand new axis lock and will go away within a week or so of use.
AXIS Lock is sticking......
Scott B.
First, Benchmade knives are great, have many, usually have no issues. This knife however has an issue with the lock. It sticks and won't move back to release the blade. Will see if there is a rough spot or something that is catching it and if it gets better over time.
