Put A Benchmade In Your Pocket
By Adelia Ladson
A Little Bit About BenchmadeOver the past 30 years, Benchmade has grown from a small machine shop in Southern California to a world-class knife manufacturer in the production knife capital of the Pacific Northwest. Quality remains at the heart of the business, as they continue to draw inspiration from the people, places, and products around them. In the line of duty, the field or forest, for everyday carry - you buy Benchmade because you know it will perform without compromise, however you need it to for as long as you need it to. Their offerings include everyday carry pocket knives, hunting and survival knives, rescue knives and tactical knives, and they even have kitchen cutlery.
Top Five Benchmade KnivesOffering incredible tactical knives that won’t let our customers down is a top priority for us! So, that’s why we carry a variety of Benchmade pocket knives including OTF knives, automatic knives and manual knives. Here is a taste of the ready-for-action pocket knives that we have in stock. Folks, it’s time to put a Benchmade in your pocket!
Claymore Pocket KnifeStarting off with a powerhouse, the Claymore has set the bar for closed break strength, making it the toughest Benchmade pocket knife to date. Inspired by one of the most notorious directional mines, the slender push-button is bound to take the battlefield by storm. The cobalt black, drop point blade is made of CPM-D2 steel, which provides a 60-62 HRC and long-lasting edge retention, and the edge is partially serrated. The ranger green handle is crafted of tough Grivory that’s heavily textured and ridged, making it extremely grippy in all types of environments. The 5” closed size and the deep-carry, reversible pocket clip make it the perfect EDC.
Autocrat OTF KnifeOne of the most popular Benchmade’s is the Autocrat OTF Knife and we’re constantly restocking them. I think the reason is because it’s one of the lightest automatics that you’ll ever come across. What reduces the weight is that the coyote brown handle is made of lightweight G10, and the handle profile is nice and slim. You’ll barely know that you’re carrying it in your pocket. It has a black-coated, CPM-S30V steel dagger blade has a 58-60 HRC and it can be quickly deployed with the slide trigger on the side of the handle. The handle also has a deep-carry, reversible tip-down pocket clip. Designed with both the EDC and tactical enthusiasts in mind, the Autocrat is quick, stylish, lightweight and performs just as well as it looks.
Stimulus Automatic KnifeThe Stimulus Automatic Knife offers an enlarged push button so that deploying the blade is ridiculously quick and easy. The 154CM steel blade is just under 3” and it has a sharp, spear point. The premium steel gives the blade a 58-61 HRC and the satin finish won’t show wear. The handle is made of anodized aluminum and features a lanyard hole and a reversible, tip-up/down pocket clip. The Stimulus is a great, compact size for an EDC and fits comfortably in your hand when using.
Mini Presidio II Ultra Pocket KnifeIf the Autocrat OTF is the lightest full-sized automatic you’ll ever come across, the Mini Presidio II Ultra has to be the lightest mini that you’ll ever come across. It’s the perfect option if you’re looking for a smaller workhorse that won’t weigh your kit down. It features the ultra-durable, Benchmade CF-Elite handle, which is what cuts the overall weight of the knife, and it has a lanyard hole and a deep-carry pocket clip. The black-coated, CPM-S30V steel drop point blade has a 58-60 HRC.
Bronze Phaeton OTF KnifeJust a good workhorse automatic OTF, the Bronze Phaeton OTF Knife combines speed and style for a semi-tactical EDC you can rely on. The double-action automatic allows you to deploy the blade by pushing the actuator forward and retract the blade by pulling it back. The spine-fire thumb-slide opener offers quick deployment of the CPMS30V steel drop point blade, which has plenty of strength with its diamond-like carbon coating. The anodized handle is machined from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum and the subtle texturing along the top scale improves your grip on the smooth handle without being abrasive. A stainless steel, reversible deep-carry pocket clip completes the tactical EDC design. The Bronze Phaeton OTF Automatic Knife is not only a handy working knife but also a capable self-defense knife.
