HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR

BENCHMADE KNIFE
ADDRESS SERVICE REQUESTED

There are four primary factors in considering a Benchmade
knife: the activity you are using it for, the opening mechanism,
the blade style and the blade steel. Read below to make sure you
get the knife that works for you.

Outdoor, Tactical, Everyday use—there are many uses for a knife and some
knives are better for certain activities than others. Look to our recommended
use icons for guidance (See foldout).

MECHANISM
We offer five primary actions: manual opening, assisted opening, automatic
opening, fixed blade and bali-song. If you are a mountain climber, you may
want an assist. If you are a sportsman, a fixed blade may be the right choice.
Whatever the case, consider which mechanism type is optimal for your
needs. Mechanisms like the AXIS® lock deliver manual opening, assisted
opening and automatic opening. Others, like the monolock, deliver only
manual opening. For a quick overview, see the next page of this guide; for
detailed information on our mechanisms, visit page 77.

BLADE STYLE
While the cutting edge does the work, the edge is applied in different ways
to the cutting surface depending on the shape of the blade. Blade shapes with
larger radiuses may be optimal for hunting while blade shapes with hard
angles, like the tanto, may be better for tactical applications. The next page
of this guide helps to explain these variations.

BLADE STEEL

2015
CATALOG

Steel composition can mean the difference between 1 sharp cut and 1,000.
There are many types of steel and additional factors that play into the right
kind of steel for your usage. For instance, the way some steels are heat
treated plays a critical role in a knife’s performance. For more detailed
information, visit page 78.

Inside of Benchmade there is a team of knife
makers who transform knives into art. They
create limited runs of highly valuable products
that are made one piece at a time, start to finish.
The knives they build are handmade and hard
to find. For over twenty five years, Benchmade
has been bridging the gap between custom and
manufactured and the Gold Class is the pinnacle
of that commitment.
