I’m a benchmade dealer and a lot of people are nerding out over this at work. I love that it’s overall length is 7.62; i found that hilarious as it’s an EXTREMELY popular deployment knife. (The Adamas family in general.)

This channel & advanced knife bro are my two favorite for knife reviews/unboxing ! Thank you for the content , keep up the good work !

I've got large hands ….the handle seems pretty small ? Be good see the full version going up against the coldsteel 4max …scout . I can see the coldsteel being way better .

It's a Cerokote coating, just tungsten colored. Coincidently, tungsten is also a constituent of Cru-Wear.

.. hopefully Benchmade gets their Quality Control in check.. it's always a toss up if you'll get a screwy uneven grind or a pivot screw that was tightened with a vehicle torque wrench & red LocTite. It shouldn't be that way, ever. Especially with Benchmade's price point

If they dropped the price about 50 bucks on all their knives they'd be okay. Otherwise there's better stuff to buy. I have a few and feel I got gypped.
