Designed in collaboration with Seiichi Nakamura, the Saibu embodies its name with details at every turn. The satin finished 20CV blade is a subtle drop point with dual thumb studs accented with Cocobolo inlays to match the inlays on the contoured G10 handles. Multiple cutout windows in the handles allow you to see into and through the Saibu and a bamboo-styled, metal backspacer is polished for a final eye-catching detail. The Saibu offers beauty and performance in equal measure.

Brand new item directly from Benchmade Knives, USA.

The Blade: A flat ground drop point blade delivers highly utilitarian performance and is made from satin finished CPM 20CV for optimal edge retention and corrosion resistance for every day use. Dual thumb studs provide ambidextrous deployment and add an aesthetic appeal with Cocobolo inlay details.

The Handle: Bright, stainless steel liners support contoured, black G10 handle scales with multiple cutout windows that give you a look into the knife while enhancing traction on this ergonomic design. Cocobolo inlays add a subtle contrast to the G10 and match the thumb stud inlays. A polished bamboo-style stainless steel backspacer and reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip round out the many details of the Saibu.
