Blade Show 2014 – Benchmade

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Benchmade just launched the new 5400 Serum which features the AXIS Dual Action Mechanism. It offers redundant opening mechanism. The primary is an auto opener with a standard thumbstud opening and AXIS blade lock.

You pull down the AXIS button for manual opening and pull a little further to the rear for automatic opening. This means that even if your spring breaks for some reason, you can still reliably open and close your knife.

This 3.47″ blade is made of Elmax premium steel (58-60 HRC). The 550 Serum also features G10 scales with full stainless steel liners and a reversible pocket clip.

The new Benchmade 940-1 Osborne aXIS will be available in April. It is the first knife in the 940 series to feature S90V steel. It also incorporates machined carbon fiber handles, blue anodized barrel spacers making for a lighter version of the standard 940. You may notice the name includes AXIS and this is because it uses the AXIS lock, an ambidextrous, easy-to-use locking mechanism for the blade. The blade is 3.4″ with an overall length of 7.87″ and 2.4 oz.

Benchmade Introduces ComboEdge SOCP Dagger

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

This is the coolest thing I didn’t get to see at AUSA. Unfortunately, the sample didn’t arrive at the show but I still get to share it with you thanks to the power of the internet.

SOCP Dagger - ComboEdge

The SOCP Knife (Special Operations Combative Program) is a dagger design from Chief Instructor Greg Thompson and manufactured by Benchmade. The design has been out there for awhile so you may have already seen it. However, Benchmade just introduced a new model with a ComboEdge blade. The dagger is designed to be both an offensive and defensive weapon so if you’re wrapped up or someone grabs your primary weapon in a confined space (think house or cave) you can draw the SOCP to engage at close quarters and fight away from the threat to give you enough room to revert to primary or secondary weapon. The blade and finger eye/loop at the top is configured so you can still maintain positive weapon control and good trigger manipulation while the SOCP Knife is in your hand. I’ve written about this before and since some folks have trouble visualizing it, Benchmade created this graphic.

The deal with this new ComboEdge is that the original model was great at stabbing but, lacking a full blade, didn’t do much in the slash department. Benchmade added this new serrated section to the blade and presto; you can hack and slash as well as stab.

In addition to a MOLLE compatible sheath, the SOCP Knife is also available with a red training knife.

Warrior West – Benchmade

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

The 9170 Auto Triage was developed at the request of US Navy Aviators who were looking for a knife with auto opening features for both the main blade as well as personal safety cutter.

20130425-100149.jpg

Here you can SE the evolution of the design. At the bottom is the 916 which was developed with Natick as well as Customs and Border Patrol who wanted a knife with an opposing bevel for increased blade strength. That blade style is also good for folks who need to use it while on a platform like an aircraft or ship as there’s no point to accidentally cut someone or something. The 916 Triage also incorporates a personal safety cutter as well as a carbide tip glass breaker. The middle knife is the 915 SBK-ORG with the sheeps foot blade and has more of a commercial appeal. Finally, the knife at the top is the 9170 SBK-ORG. It incorporates an auto opening modified drop point blade as well as an auto personal safety hook. Eventually, all of the models will be available in auto variants and the corrosive resistant N680 blades are available in satin or black cerakote finishes. Handles are G10.
