- Q & A
Nice stout knife
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got this knife because it has steel liners. It feels strong and sturdy. Others without liners feel weak. I don't want to be stuck in the woods with a broken knife.I like the size and feel of the handle. It fits my hand well. I am a fan of the flipper. It works well for me more so than a thumb stud. It arrived nice and sharp right out of the box . I love the look of this knife. The tan color of the handle complements the silver stone washed blade.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had this knife for awhile now, and it keeps getting better. There is really nothing bad about this knife, but it might not be right for some people. Here are some of the features of this knife:
-Heavy weight compared to others
-Strong, heavy duty blade
-Very nice grip, allows you to use when wet
-Very nice flip open mechanism
-Very durable, I can't see how anyone can break this
-Blade has a round belly, which makes the blade stronger for years of use
Overall, if you want a heavy duty, extremely strong knife that you can have for a lifetime look no further! This is now my go-to knife for day use and backpacking.
I have a question about the flipping...
I have a question about the flipping mechanism. I just purchased this knife as a birthday gift and when I opened it to test it out, the knife does flip out, but not all the way to the locked position. Is this correct? Other switch blade or flipper knives I have used actually flip all the way out and locked when you hit the trigger. Wondering if I got a dud?
It does not have the punch that some other Benchmade's have. The mechanism on this knife is meant to assist in the opening. It is not switch blade or automatic knife, you will still need to flick your wrist to lock the blade out as well as use the flipping trigger on the back side of the handle. It will become easier to lock out with more use.
