Customer Reviews

another great bench made!
FRED B. on Jan 23, 2020

These benchmades are additive,This one fills my hand better than my 940-1. The axis lock is a little sticky, but that will work right out.The gimping on this knife is very good.I may switch to flytanium scales at some point, but ill see if these grow on me!

Great right out of the box

Buddy got it really recently, opens like a dream, closes like a dream, handle has good grip, super sharp out of the box, actually better than most assisted opening knives

Great little knife

This was the first knife I bought and have loved every minute of carrying it. My other wish is for a deep carry pocket clip. But other than that it’s light and is a very flippy knife.

Best EDC I got!

Super smooth opening, AXIS lock is totally trust worthy. Very fun to play with. My first Benchmade, can't wait to get more!

Best starter knife
Joshua G. on Jan 5, 2018

I got this knife for my brother on Christmas and he didn’t understand what owning $100 knife was like now that he felt the quality in he construction and a quality blade grind this knife never leaves his side. The axis lock is nice and easy for use with gloves and is very smooth.

Great knife
Dexter D. on Jan 5, 2018

Great all around knife for the price, would buy again.

Perfect EDC knife without a doubt!!
Dennis P. on Mar 8, 2016

You pay for quality and with this beauty you get it! Carries great in pocket and in hand. Good steel and holds an edge indefinitely. Always there during your active daily routine and welcomed when needed.

Well rounded everyday carry
Charles H. on Aug 3, 2019

Great size and egos. Axis lock is great. Manufacturing variance in fit and finish is why I didn't give it 5 stars.

Great knife for my wife!
Robert C. on Feb 22, 2019

I purchased this knife for a small edc but my hands are too big. So I gave it to my wife and she loves it! Perfect size for her hands. Sharp straight from the box and quick to open and close. Great knife!
