The first addition to the Benchmade Knives Proper line is a refined Clip Point version with the same modern execution of a classic design. This slip joint design is an excellent every day carry size perfect for sliding in your pocket or pack. Built with handsome green/brown canvas micarta handle scales and premium S30V blade steel.

Brand new item direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.

The Blade: The Clip Point blade of the 318 is crafted from field-tested CPM S30V stainless steel and given a classic satin finish. The opening of the slip joint blade is easily achieved utilizing either a pinch grip on the spine or the generous nail nick on the blade. A high height saber grind delivers great cutting performance with a more robust blade and enhanced tip strength.

The Handle: A useful, comfortably contoured construction is built from stainless liners and attractive green canvas micarta scales. Micarta is a compost material that has been around since the early 1900's and it offers excellent toughness and insulation. The material typically has a light texture when not polished creating a pleasant feel in hand dry or wet. Thanks to the canvas material used in this Micarta the handles of the Proper stay grippy even when wet. The construction is completed using torx screws with a nice lanyard hole at the end allowing the user to apply his or her own personal touch to the knife. 

The 318 Proper does not include a pocket clip.
