154CM Stainless Steel
An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
Modified Clip-Point with Recurve and Thumb-Stud
A clip point is technically a variant of a drop point. Instead of a "slow convex-curve" to lower the point; the profile is "clipped" to bring the point down. Sometimes a concave curve will be referred to as a "clipped point". This is usually associated with bowie styles.
Modified Locking-Liner with Nitrous® Spring-Assist
The basic principle is an integral locking bar within the knife liner being stress bent, enabling it to spring into position behind the rear tang of the blade when the blade is opened. The locking bar wedges against the rear of the blade, locking it open until you physically push it clear and close the blade (locking-liners are made either right or left hand specific). And with a modified locking-liner you get a patented feature which helps to enhance the lock function. The function success and function failure of a locking-liner depends greatly on how well it is made and also the quality of the materials used. With Benchmade, you get both.
Another patented Benchmade exclusive, the Nitrous™ boosts the blade with ease. As the blade is closed the two torsion arms which run the length of the handle liners are secured in place and make contact with the blade tang. As tensioned against the blade tang, the user rotates the blade open to a 30-degree angle, the torsion arms take over and continue the blade opening process on its own. The huge advantages to the Nitrous design over other similar concepts, is that the blade must be rotated open to beyond a 30-degree angle, which offers added user control.
