ew this year we have expanded the Benchmade product
line to include new levels of product offerings. We have
taken everything you have come to expect in a Benchmade
and reapplied it in such a way that opens the door to a
much broader mix of knife users to have the opportunity
to appreciate what has fast become an icon in cutting tool
performance. You get innovative designs from some of
the top name custom knife makers in the world, patented
Benchmade exclusive mechanisms, upscaled materials and
notably superior standards in manufactured quality, no
matter whether we build it ourselves or have it built for us.
A NEW CLASS OF CUTLERY
To make things easier we have segmented the Benchmade
brand into four product classes for easier distinction of
product throughout the line. They are as follows:
BLUE CLASS Staying true to blue, the Blue Class represents the heart of everything that is
Benchmade. For years it’s been where people have come to expect greatness. Whether it’s
folders or fixed blades, the Blue Class knife is designed and built for the individual who
appreciates the difference a high-quality cutting tool can make.
BLACK CLASS It represents the most commonly used knives by professionals where life and
death situations are often all in a day’s work, so the tools they use must be up to the challenge
as well. From Law Enforcement and Public Safety to elite Military troops, our obligation is still
the same, the best tools for the job. Imagine what they can do in your world.
NEW PACKAGING FOR 2004, INCLUDING A
SPECIAL PRESENTATION QUALITY BOX FOR THE
GOLD CLASS (NOT PICTURED).
RED CLASS Edged tools with the same Benchmade signature innovation and performance driven
mindset, geared for the casual knife buyer. It’s a commitment to be the “best in class” value,
and initiates an entirely new group of knife users to the Benchmade performance difference.
GOLD CLASS Erasing the lines between custom and manufactured, it is a matter of satisfying
the ultimate desire. Whether it is embellishing existing designs to loftier heights, creating
entirely new ones, or even crafting a one of a kind experience from a collector’s wish list, the
Gold class clearly sets the new standard of knife manufacturing.
