Details

Rapid deployment and control are the key factors in the Aileron, the first collaboration between professional security consultant and former member of the CIA Steve Tarani and Benchmade knives. Designed for the Aviation Industry with input and review from pilots and Federal Flight Deck Officers, the 737 has laser texturing on the blade for utilizing Tarani's specialized two-handed deployment and ergonomic G10 handles that provide positive grip and handling in all situations and environments for a wide range of users. This version comes with a stonewashed CPM S30V blade and heavily textured, black G10 handles.

Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives. Made in the USA.

Blade:  Made from saber ground CPM S30V, the tumble finished drop point blade is stout enough for defensive use while still offering a pragmatic tool to take care of your every day cutting tasks. The blade opens via an ambidextrous thumb hole on a smooth washer pivot or utilize the laser etched texturing on the flats for fast, two-hand deployment.

Handle: Heavily textured black G10 handle scales are supported by steel liners and house the smooth and robust AXIS lock mechanism. The AXIS lock paired with the deployment methods and reversible clip make the Aileron fully ambidextrous for left- and right-handed users. The sweeping taper of the handles were designed specially to offer a solid and secure grip for users of all hand sizes and use with or without gloves. Jimping and a generous index guard make the Aileron unbelievably secure in the hand for reliable retention in the most adverse conditions.

Carries via a reversible, tip-up, Deep Carry, Stainless Steel Pocket Clip.

CPM S30V: A martensitic, powdered stainless steel with high levels of wear and corrosion resistance. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. This gives it a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
