Description

Description

The Benchmade 580 Barrage is a strong knife with quick spring assisted action. Use the ambidextrous thumb studs to prompt the AXIS-Assist mechanism. For those who like the peace of mind that a safety offers, you'll be glad to know there's one on the handle back. Includes a reversible pocket clip for easy carry. The 580 has a drop point blade that is satin finished 154CM with a plain edge.

This was a replacement for a Barrage 580 I had lost. Saying that, my previous one was my EDC and I used it frequently had no complaints. It was also previously used and a few years old. Good strong steel, keeps an edge well, grip works well despite being made of some type of sturdy plastic (dropped it a few times!), AXIS lock was smooth as well as the assist.

Now, the new one that arrived from the factory needed some work. I had to take the scales off and loosen the screw on assist. I could not open it with my thumb as the previous one opened so easily. The lock will take some time to loosen as well. I oiled it, but it runs against steel of the frame that is not smooth for some reason. Also, it could stand to be quite a bit sharper. Its not dull, but not what I expect from a company with this reputation. If I had not know how great the knife could be, I would have been highly disappointed. Still disappointed that I had to do some work to it that could have been corrected in the factory, but know that once its broken in, its a truly great knife for EDC. Highly recommend getting a deep carry clip for it.
Almost, but not quite

My first “high end” knife. Nice steel, held up well to daily use and it had a fairly good feel in hand.
I would have probably kept it around if it hadn’t been for the assist and the extra slippery when wet scales.
Good but..

I've edced this knife for a few years now and it's definitely a work horse. But after the first year the assist mechanism has greatly weakened and now fires slow. And the handles are also slick and not designed to be used in a tactical manor.
Great knife but not for me

Great knife, but I feel like spring assist takes away from the axis lock. You can't disengage the axis lock and use the flick technique. The safety lock is nifty but I never found myself using it.

After trying cold steel and SOG knives, this is the one I've carried for the last couple years and haven't needed to replace. Very impressed by the quality and durability of this knife. I plan to buy more Benchmade knives.
Love it more now

This was a great knife when I first bought it, but it became one of my favorites after buying G10 scales for it. The original scales felt like plastic, still high quality and durable but I just didn’t like the feel in hand. The G10 scales I bought are awesome and more grippy. It opens smooth and fast and locks up great. There’s a bit of side to side blade play, no up and down, but not enough to be concerned about.
Terrific Knife

This is my second Benchmade knife and I love it. Spring assist is fast and smooth. Lock-up is solid. Handles are sufficiently textured for a good grip. Another quality product from Benchmade!
Great knife.

Only problem was I live in MD and cannot have spring assisted. I removed that mechanism (pretty easy) but it voids the warranty. The action actually opens quicker now, though. I have gotten many knives since getting this one and nothing has replaced it as my EDC
