Benchmade Contego Osborne Black Plain S30V Black G10 Fixed Blade 183BK
The Warren Osborne designed Contego takes the iconic reverse Tanto of his everyday carry 940 model and delivers it in a robust tactical platform. The fixed blade version utilizes the same CPM-S30V blade steel in a reliable full tang construction with contoured, low-profile G10 handle scales for modern performance and comfort. This version comes with a black coated, plain edge blade and black G10 handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.
Blade: Full tang S30V is delivered in a robust reverse Tanto with high saber grind for good slicing while retaining good toughness. A generous thumb scoop on the spine of the blade provides a comfortable platform for generating added leverage for powerful cuts. The black coated blade is non-reflective for discreet use while enhancing corrosion resistance and hiding wear from use.
Handle: Contoured black G10 scales are supported by the full tang construction with the tang sitting proud to the scales for a more contoured feel while retaining a low-drag profile for carry. Deep cutouts for the fingers deliver a secure grip with optimal leverage for heavy use. Strategic jimping adds traction and safety paired with the pronounced thumb ramp.
Sheath: Carries via a MOLLE compatible molded polymer sheath with adjustable retention.
CPM-S30V: A powdered stainless steel with high levels of edge retention and corrosion resistance S30V was developed specifically for use in knife blades. The powdered process gives it a very refined grain, improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
