Great compact knife.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This knife is great! It's the first knife I bought for myself and I am very pleased. The knife fits comfortably in my hand and is easy to use. This is just a great knife for those who want a small, light-weight knife.

An amazingly beautiful knife

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unboxing this knife was a great feeling in itself it was so pretty when I pulled it out of the box, it is small enough to take anywhere has the quality you expect from a benchmade. All in all it is a great knife.

Unmatched Benchmade Quality

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This knife is Typical Benchmade Quality, the knife is a bit small as I had intended to get the non mini. That being said for someone who wants a very minimal knife to carry wherever they go this would be a great knife.

Very Nice!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a high quality knife. The blade opens smoothly with a push of your thumb, and then with a solid lock in place. Very sturdy. Great handle, nice grip, sharp blade, and solid feel. Just the right size for a back pocket and I carry it every where I go. The materials are the best. Benchmade = Well made.

Great Knife

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This knife is great. Like someone else said, it is a good fit in your hand and easy to store in any bag or pocket. This knife was super sharp when I opened the package. It's great!

Perfect for everyday carry

    I have different versions of Benchmade but this is my first Tanto blade , I like it so much that I ordered a larger version , I am very picky when it comes to blade , I always purchase a combo blade for practical reasons .

    Perfect Mini Benchmade

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really love the size of this knife. Also I enjoy the angular edge as well as the grip on the exterior. The knife fits well in my pocket or any part of my bag. It is also quite sharp, it is very nice.

    Perfect Mini Benchmade

    locks good!

      This thing is sweet stays sharp and bench made will resharpen it and over hall it for free if you send it in to them. The lock is great I am never afraid that the blade with close on me. If you dangle it from a rope the blade has a tendency to pop open. Just don't hang it from a rope.
