FA ILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
THE LIFE OF AN ARMED PROFESSIONAL
IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. YOUR COMPASS
ONLY POINTS FORWARD, GUIDED BY A
SPIRITED WILL TO SERVE, AND DRIVEN
BY UNDAUNTED DEDICATION TO
PROTECT AT ALL COSTS. IT TAKES A
UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL TO PUT IT ALL ON
THE LINE SO THAT ANOTHER MAY HAVE
THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE. FOR YOU,
IT IS NOT ABOUT THE GLORY, IT GOES
MUCH DEEPER THAN THAT. ONLY YOU
CAN UNDERSTAND THE TRUE MEANING
OF FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
ANYTHING LESS JUST WON’T CUT IT.

Benchmade recognizes the fact that we get
to go home at night thanks to you, and those
that have served before you. Most of us will
never have walked in your shoes. That is why
we dedicate our every effort to make the best
tools we possibly can for you. Know that each
is built with you in mind.
We will never forget.

NOTICE: PROCUREMENT OF AUTOMATIC KNIVES IS REGULATED BY LAW. NO EXCEPTIONS
WILL BE MADE. IT IS THE PURCHASERS RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK THE CURRENT LEGAL
PERMISSIBILITY WITHIN YOUR STATE AND/OR LOCALITY.
Although automatic opening knives are not subject to prohibitive legislation in
Oregon*, many states are not so fortunate. Federal law prohibits shipment of
automatic knives across state lines, with the following exceptions: (1) to civilian
or Armed Forces supply or procurement officers and employees of the Federal
Government ordering, procuring, or purchasing such knives in connection with
the activities of the Federal Government; (2) to supply or procurement officers of
the National Guard, the Air National Guard, or militia of the State, Territory or the
District of Columbia ordering, procuring, or purchasing such knives in connection
with the activities of such organization; (3) to supply or procurement officers
or employees of the municipal government of the District of Columbia or of the
government of any State or Territory; (4) to manufacturers of such knives or bona
fide dealers therein in connection with any shipment made pursuant of an order
from any person designated in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3).
*Not to be carried concealed.

Not all knives are created equal.
NOT EVEN CLOSE!
Considering what you do for a
living, can you really afford to
not compare all the features and
facts? Too often, professionals like
you take their cutting tool choice

DESIGN
Is it a practical design, and will it
enhance my abilities? Will the blade
shape offer good utility? Does it fit the
hand properly? Will it support the desired
cutting tool needs? Can it be attached or
carried in a useful manner?

for granted and consequently
have performance issues down the
road - which can be as minor as a
simple inconvenience, or as major

MECHANISM

as a total tool failure causing

Can the blade be opened and closed easily
and with one hand? Will it open and close
intuitively without having to focus on the
task? Can the blade be opened in a struggle
or within physical limitations? Does it stay
open or closed reliably? Is the mechanism
proven to enhance function, or merely

severe injury or worse.
Professionals need to seek out
reliable information on their
knives through user testimonials,
available technical data, and
reputable product reviews or
product dealers. The demanding
world in which you work presents
many challenges, some predictable
and some not. When it comes to

QUALITY

your choice of cutting tools, make

Does it feel solid and well-built?
Does the blade wobble? Do all of the
components fit together properly? Does
the manufacturer offer a warranty and
stand behind its products?

sure you’re getting the best tool
for the job by considering design,
mechanism, quality and materials
in your purchasing process.

THESE ARE ALL VIABLE QUESTIONS AND
CONCERNS WHEN IT COMES TO SELECTING
AN ESSENTIAL PIECE OF YOUR GEAR.
OUR HOPE IS TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE
BEST TOOL FOR YOUR JOB. IF THAT ENDS
UP BEING A BENCHMADE WE WOULD BE
HONORED, AND SAY THANK YOU.

MATERIALS
Do the materials used enhance
performance or offer improved levels
of performance over others? Are the
materials strong and durable offering
added value? Is the blade steel tough and
how long will the edge stay sharp? Are
the materials used truly what the knife
manufacturer says they are?

NSN/GSAPROCUREMENT
YOU DIDN’t ORDER A KNIFE -YOU ORDERED A BENCHMADE

using the correct NSN, GSA , or other procurement product code, and get the
edged tool you deserve. Benchmade knows there is nothing stronger than
the United States Military and Law Enforcement Professionals. This is why we
