Benchmade – 818 Mini Loco

Sunday, September 24th, 2017


The 818 Mini Loco will seem very familiar to anyone who has ever handled the full sized 808 Loco which is a very ergonomic design, due in part, to the canted handle design. Complemented with a robust CPM-S30V stainless steel blade, custom hardware and Benchmade’s AXIS locking mechanism, the 818 is an ideal choice for an everyday carry or as a backup knife.


The 818 Mini Loco will be display for the first time at NTOA, in booth #408.
