The 3-inch, serrated-edge modified Tanto blade on this sleek black knife is thick and extra-strong so it absorbs impact and delivers superior piercing action. Itﾒs made from D2 tool steel, an air-hardened, corrosion-resistant material that stands up to the hard use and rugged wear of protect and serve work. The Stryker features a modified locking liner with patented Nitrous spring assisted opening for quick, one-handed access and improved control. Speaking of control, the G10 scales on the handle deliver the grip you need for superior handling.

Benchmade Design ﾖ Made in the USA
D2 - An air-hardened tool steel, which offers good corrosion resistance and excellent mileage in wear resistance. A good choice for hard use applications.
Tanto - Most tantos seen on the American cutlery market are Americanized formats. Like the Japanese tanto, the Americanized tanto has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing. The front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. The only negative aspect of the tanto blade shape is the cutting surface area is sacrificed to gain tip strength.
Nitrous Assist - Another patented Benchmade exclusive, the Nitrous, boosts the blade with ease. As the blade is closed the two torsion arms, which run the length of the handle liners, are secured in place and make contact with the blade tang. As tension against the blade tang, the user rotates the blade open to a 30-degree angle, the torsion arms take over and continue the blade opening process on its own. The huge advantages to the Nitrous design over other similar concepts, is that the blade must be rotated open beyond a 30-degree angle, which offers added user control.
Black Class - products are designed, developed and tested for extreme duty. They are the preferred cutting tools for Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Elite Military Troops around the globe.
