Another beautiful Gold Class offering from Benchmade Knives comes the 707-161 Copper Niobium Sequel. This very special Sequel sports inlays made of the same material used in massive particle accelerators. Like most Gold Class knives this one is limited, only 175 pieces available worldwide.
The Blade: Crowned ultra premium CPM-S90V blade steel was chosen and crafted in the drop point style. The nearly three inches of steel was given a two-toned, dark acid washed and bright polished finish. Dual thumb stud ambidextrous operation working in junction with the dependable AXIS Lock mechanism.
The Handle: 3D machined 6AL-4V titanium handle scales with copper niobium inlays. This very special material is taken from large copper cables interspersed with NbTi (Niobium Titanium) filaments that were used in massive particle accelerators. For example, the Tevatron accelerator. An advanced scientific measurement machine used to smash protons together at high rates of speed. Cool stuff! The handle is constructed with heat colored hardware and accented with a reversible custom titanium pocket clip for tip up carry.
