Blending the best elements of the classic, everyday carry 940 model with the elegant CLA automatic, the Benchmade Mediator is a tactical push-button automatic built for everyday carry and use. A sleek switchblade with lightning-fast action, the 8551BK comes with chevron milled black G10 handles and a black Cerakote coated, CPM-S90V reverse Tanto blade.

Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.

Blade: Tough and utilitarian, the reverse Tanto blade is made from premium CPM-S90V stainless steel for exceptional edge retention and corrosion resistance. Durable, black poly-ceramic Cerakote delivers a non-reflective finish that enhances corrosion resistance and holds up under heavy use. The blade deploys at the touch of a button for fast, one-hand operation.

Handle: Stout black G10 handles are milled with a chevron pattern that offers good traction without being overly aggressive. The subtly contoured handle design offers a solid, ergonomic feel in a variety while offering a very clean look. Partial inset steel liners house the rock solid button lock mechanism and slide safety which prevents unintentional deployment as well as enhancing lock security during use. Black hardware and barrel spacers complete the open construction while holes at the pommel end allow for lanyard attachment.

Carries via a black, reversible (tip-up), stainless steel mini deep carry.

CPM-S90V: A unique tool steel made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, CPM S90V offers substantial improvements in edge retention over 440C and D2, and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. S90V is an excellent choice where wear and corrosion resistance are key.
