Description

Everything you love about the original 319 Proper complete with an infamous Tom Krein regrind. This knife has been an instant favorite around the shop, so when we were approached by Tom about doing a handful with his thinner profile regrind we jumped at the chance. 

Comes in the original Benchmade box with all packaging included direct from Tom's shop in Arkansas, USA.

About the 319 Proper Micarta: A very useful sheepsfoot style on the 319 crafted from edge retaining CPM S30V stainless steel and given a classic satin finish. The length comes in just under three inches featuring a plain cutting edge and simple nail nick opener towards the end of the front flat. The modern touches include an upper swedge grind and a jimped thumb ramp for a bit more control. This is a non-locking blade that's held open and closed with a strong backspring. A useful, comfortable contoured construction with this piece built from stainless liners and attractive green canvas micarta scales. Micarta is more than a trend or just eye candy. It's, in fact, incredibly useful. The material typically has a light texture when not polished creating a pleasant feel in hand dry or wet. See, micarta actually stays grippy when wet due to all the materials fibers making it one of the most popular handle materials in the knife world today. All is secured 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. 

About the Tom Krein Regrind: For a number of years knifemaker Tom Krein has been performing his regrind mod on users knives. This leaves a slightly thinner blade profile resulting in a knife which will slice much better than the original factory version. Although there is an additional cost involved, we think it's well worth it given the additional cutting performance.
