Benchmade SOCP Knife

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

One of the most popular knives at the Benchmade table is the SOCP Knife (Special Operations Combative Program) built by Benchmade with input from Greg Thompson. Greg is the head SOCP instructor out at Ft Bragg. It’s designed to be both an offensive and defensive weapon so if you’re wrapped up or someone grabs your primary weapon you can draw the SOCP to engage at close quarters (like house or cave) and fight away so you can revert to primary or secondary. 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.

There’s a red training version available too, so you don’t bleed on the mat.
