Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.
Blade: A utilitarian Clip Point blade profile was built to tackle your daily cutting tasks. Smooth, ambidextrous dual thumb stud operation offers fast, one handed access while the discreetly non-reflective, black coated CPM-S30V blade delivers a good balance of durability and slicing performance thanks to the high saber grind and clip point swedge. The Clip Point profile excels at detail work and piercing, sacrificing some durability of the 940's reverse Tanto.
Handle: 3D milled Aluminum handle scales are contoured for comfort and provide a lightweight, durable handle option. Black anodized with contrasting blue spacer, the handles have a fine blasted texture for a secure grip despite the lack of aggressive milling. A neutral handle design means comfort in multiple grips for added versatility while the ambidextrous AXIS lock is smooth and reliable with rock solid lockup.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up stainless steel pocket clip.
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.
