Designed in collaboration with Seiichi Nakamura, the Saibu (Japanese for details) embodies its name with details at every turn. Simple in design with subtle, eye-catching details, the Saibu retains the drop point blade, streamline, multi-cutout inlaid handle and bamboo-style metal back spacer. Beautiful and high performance, this limited Gold Class edition comes with a Rose Pattern Damasteel blade, Ivory G10 handles with Crimson G10 inlays, 24k gold-plated hardware and smoke gray PVD liners and clip.

Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.

Blade: A flat ground drop point blade delivers highly utilitarian performance and is made from stunning rose pattern Damasteel which offers the beauty of pattern welded Damascus with the performance of a modern stainless steel. Dual, red enamel filled thumb studs provide ambidextrous deployment and add an aesthetic appeal with the Crimson red G10 inlay details.

Uniquely serialized #162 on back of blade near thumb stud.

Handle: Gray PVD coated stainless steel liners support contoured, Ivory white G10 handle scales with multiple cutout windows that give you a look into the knife while enhancing traction on this ergonomic design which takes inspiration from the Golden Temple in Japan. Crimson G10 inlays add a striking contrast and match the thumb stud inlays. Gold hardware and matching bamboo-style back spacer with lanyard hole round out the construction. The ambidextrous AXIS lock provides secure, reliable lockup and smooth operation.

Carries via a reversible, tip-up, gray PVD coated stainless steel deep carry clip.

Damasteel: A high hardness, high corrosion resistant steel that combines two martensitic stainless steels - RWL34 and PMC27 - in unique patterns that, when etched, create the designs seen on the blade. Damasteel delivers a blade that is very eye-catching and has performance in the realm of RWL34, similar to CPM154.
