Add a truly unique design to your collection with the Benchmark Paratrooper. This collectible knife has a bayonet blade that swings out from the handle, then folds out into the open position. There is no locking mechanism, rather the blade is secured in place by your grip on the handle. This is a cool design that remains extremely functional despite its unconventional build. The blade and handle are made from stainless steel and it includes a stainless steel pocket clip and glass breaker.

Features:
  • Unique folding design will make a great addition to any collection.
  • Stainless steel pocket clip allows for comfortable everyday carry.
  • Item includes a glass breaker for use in emergency situations.

Not sharp enough to even open letters, but it's still totally neato. Pure form over (no) function.
A gem

This thing is an absolute gem of a piece of crap. It supposedly has a dagger blade but the backside is not sharpened. The front side of the blade is barely sharpened actually. The opening device is unique and fun to show people but difficult to deploy in a pinch and forget about doing it one handed. The actual scales or whatever they are are pretty shifty. One of mine has a pretty big warp in it. On top of all of this the blade stock is like a rail road spike. Hilariously bad knife but worth the novelty and just to say you have one. It's $13 what else are you gonna do besides but this wonderful piece of metal.
Purchased solely for collection

So I can't be too hard on this knife as it did only cost about $13.00. But out of the box, the blade was dull and the point of the blade was bent. I really only purchased the knife because it was different and made a nice addition to the collection, but I would have liked to see it be sharper.
That said, the action is really unique and I can always sharpen the blade and mend the tip.
Just a warning that the knife isn't the highest quality and I would suggest keeping it as just a fun collectable instead of an actual tool.
