3 Reasons to Choose a Benchmade Knife

Picking the right knife can be difficult.

With literally thousands of options to choose from, it can be a daunting task to narrow down the right knife for you.

Generally, a great place to start in your search is to ask yourself the question, “How am I going to be using my knife?” Finding the right brand with a good amount of options within their lineup will be huge in helping you get the right knife for your needs.

Benchmade Knife Company just happens to be a brand with a large variety of product offerings that range from broad use to more specialized application.

Blade Steels for Various Applications

Each individual’s needs in performance from their knife can vary. A person who uses their knife for tasks like opening boxes and letters will have different needs than a first responder who may need their knife to be extremely tough for tasks like prying.

Benchmade Knife Company offers a variety of different steels with different functional characteristics. If you’re looking for an incredibly tough steel with excellent edge retention but aren’t too concerned with it being stainless, then you might consider a steel like CPM-M4.

Or, if you want something well-balanced with good edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance, then perhaps a steel like CPM-S30V might be a better fit for you.

With a wealth of information available at Benchmade.com you can best determine what steel would fit your individual need in performance.

Ambidextrous Utility

Benchmade’s AXIS® locking mechanism has been turning heads and winning people over since its introduction.

In addition to being one of the strongest locking mechanisms on the market it’s also completely ambidextrous.

Whether you are left- or right-handed, this locking mechanism’s intuitive operation gives the user an added sense of confidence in using their knife.

Customize to Your Liking

Benchmade offers the Custom Knife Maker program where customers can select between three different models from Benchmade and select the knife’s blade material, handle material, handle color, hardware color, and even add custom laser markings to the blade.

With over a million different combinations customers can create a truly unique knife that reflects their personality.
