Better Than Advertised
David K.
I'm extremely pleased with the quality and design of this knife. I coveted one before, but at the normal price point, simply couldn't justify it. At the close-out price, I jumped at it and I'm not sorry.

The build is great. The blade is centered perfectly without any horizontal play. There's a tiny bit of vertical play but it's so small, I'm not taking a star away.

The safety (something I didn't think I'd like) engages solidly and is useful.

Of course, the knife is completely ambidextrous, something I value due to my lefthandedness. It deploys reliably with authority. I know some folks have said it's a bit slow, but mine is every bit as quick as my ProTech Godfather.

A nice plus - it has the best factory edge of any Benchmade I've ever encountered.

It's not often we come across an auto that can be considered a heavy duty user, but this one can.

Benchmade did a great job with this knife and, of course, the service and response from BladeHQ was their usual perfection.

I've had my APB for 3 years now. What a awesome work horse. Never given any problems and wow what a deal I'm buying another just because my son will love one. Best design to ever leave production. This is a beast
Really solid knife!

Love the lockup and heft of this knife. It's not a light knife so depending on what you use it for be careful before deciding to get for EDC. It's not overly heavy just noticeably hefty clipped to the pocket. Feels like it can do lot's of work. Blade action is crisp with no bounce back. Not the fastest action but smooth for a blade with some size. I LOVE that it has buttons for left and right hand carry. I am predominately left handed but carry the knife in my right pocket. So it works great for me in either hand!

This Knife is everything its advertised to be, strong sturdy build, smooth action, a bit heavy but what I feel is the perfect weight. The grip will fit your palm and fingers well. The locking mechanism was a bit stiff but after several pushes got a lot easier. The blades finish looks great and its extremely sharp as I expected, you cant go wrong with this purchase, the quality of this knife speaks for itself its so well made and worth every dollar spent. I simply love this knife.
Great Auto

Nice and sturdy with just a slight amount of blade play. Benchmade autos are worth the extra cash.

Solid, sexy, screaming sharp out the box. If you are a big guy like myself then you will like the solid feel and weight this auto has to offer. It screams tactical all the way. I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking to purchase an automatic knife, but only if you like a more solid construction.
