Benchmade Design - Made in the USA
154CM Stainless Steel - An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
Drop-Point - A slow convex-curved drop in the point characterizes a drop-point blade. The drop-point format lowers the point for control but adds strength to the tip. Usually coupled with plenty of belly for slicing, this format is often used for hunting knives. It is also a fantastic all-around blade format. This blade shape can be found on a wide array of knives.
AXIS-Assist - Another patented Benchmade exclusive. All of the advantages of an AXIS lock combined with the power of coil spring assisted opening. The blade is started open with the thumb lug, then the coil spring engages and maintains torque to the fully open position. A safety can be engaged in either the open or closed position for added security.
Class - Blue Class represents the heart of everything that is Benchmade. These USA made products are designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference that a high-quality cutting tool can make.
