Love this
Matthew M.
Mine came extremely sharp, with flawless fit and finish. Been carrying for about a week and a half and it's hard to put down. Not great when I'm on the job and need one handed opening, but when I'm not at work, it's my new go-to knife.
Great modern slipjoint!
Anders S.
I love this knife, it is a great play on an old design. I love the modern touches to this old school design. The warncliff blade in S30V is a great choice for this small edc. It's almost to small in my hand but still fits nicely. The green micarta looks and feels great and will only look better with age and use. Definetly would recommend to both traditional fans and people looking to branch out from modern edc
Good travel/Non-murdery option
Tedd U.
It's a good little slipjoint. The reason I bought it, was that it's a knife that is pretty universally legal, so it would make a good travel knife. Centering wasn't perfect but not rubbing on the scale or anything. Came sharp enough, and s30v is a nice steel out of benchmade. Overall, I would reccommend.
Great classic
Julio P.
Iíve had this knife for awhile and love it, itís nice to pull out a knife that doesnt scare everyone lol. I love the wear on the micarta handles.
Nice Slipjoint
Jacob B.
Great quality on this modern slipjoint. It's my first slipjoint and my first Benchmade. Very happy with this knife and with Benchmade's fit and finish. Highly recommended.
The knife Iíve always wanted
Daniel S.
This is such an awesome knife. I had been waiting for the day when someone would finally make a slipjoint knife with a super steel in it. S30v is great for edc and I love that this knife has torx screws in it so you can take it apart to clean it or tighten it up over time. I feel like this is a knife that will be passed down for generations. I wouldnít hesitate to buy this knife again if I was to ever lose mine and I eventually plan on buying the version in the red g10 soon
Quality Product
Isaac B.
I give this knife 5 stars because it feels like quality. I bought this knife to carry when I wear dress clothes and pulling out my Spyderco would give people a scare, and it suits this purpose well. My only complaint is that it came from the factory really dull. I mean I have had cheap Buck and Gerber knives come out of the box sharper than this knife. I didnt take away any stars because I can sharpen it easily, but when you buy an expensive knife from a reputable company a sharp blade out of the box is expected. BOTTOM LINE: Quality product, I would recommend it!
Quality and class
Ken L.
This knife has superb fit and finish. The micarta scales are smooth and refined and the lockup is solid. Benchmade has made a solid entrance into the slipjoint world with this knife. This knife is worth every cent.
Love it...

Homerun! I've been looking for a knife to carry to work in my pocket. I actually like that this does not come with a pocket clip. This knife is a nod to the past with some touch of modernism. The lanyard/key ring hole are nice touches. I've tried putting it on my key ring but have to say it definitely adds bulk to my key set. I would have given it five stars, but the edge of my blade near the tip looks a bit rolled on one side, or it just wasn't finished well enough. It's nothing that some sharpening won't fix, but this isn't a $5 key ring knife--it's $100+ and it should have been finished properly to begin with. I dock 1 star for that.
Simplicity with a punch of coolness
Eric S.
I really like this knife. I have the green micarta (two actually) and after carrying for a week or so now, the scales are taking on some wear and it's building some character into the knife. I am a huge knife nut and have about every variety possible but I find myself grabbing this one in the morning. it's just plain simple and gets the easy tasks done for me through out the day. And of course it Benchmade so it has the quality to stand behind the price tag.
Beautiful knife!
Dan G.
I've been waiting for Benchmade to come out with slip joint folder that wasn't part of their Hunt line. The fit and finish is typical Benchmade quality. The blade steel is excellent and the green micarta scales rock! Think of this knife as a Case on steroids. As always BHQ customer service is the best!
