Benchmade Knives: Black 583 SBK Combo Edge Barrage Tanto Folding Knife
People hang deer heads on the wall and put rims on cars because they look cool. But if that deer head is bright pink, it’s no longer awesome. Color counts. This Benchmade 583 SBK Black Coated Barrage Combo Edge Tanto USA-Made Knife looks really cool. So carry a bright pink pocket utensil if you like, but we'd rather have this bad boy.
This Benchmade knife coated black, but the blade is made with durable 154CM stainless steel material. Stainless steel resists corrosion, and this particular type has a 58-61HRC rating on the hardness scale. That means it can be sharpened, but this Barrage knife holds its edge well even after repeated use.
The tanto blade ends with a wicked point and is styled with a combination edge. The design of this black knife allows you to use it as a multi-tool. Use it for jabbing, slicing, cutting, scraping, even self-defense (if one of the deer heads tries to fight back). The blade is 3.6 inches long and a razor-like 0.121 inch thick.
Even the handle of this folding knife is thin, measuring only 0.65 inch thick. Made with Valox, the black handle is styled with small notches to give you better grip. Valox is lightweight, reinforced molded resin. Stainless steel liners inside add more strength.
The AXIS-assist locking mechanism keeps the blade of this Benchmade knife in place so it will stay put. When you aren't working with it, use the reversible tip-up pocket clip to store it in your pocket. When closed, it measures a mere 4.75 inches. Fully open, it's 8.35 inches long.
We like this Benchmade 583 SBK Black Coated Barrage Combo Edge Tanto Pocket Knife because it looks cool. But we love this pocket knife because it's functional, it's tough and it's totally ready to work.
I was very skeptical at first because of the price, but I went ahead and bought one anyway and boy am I glad I did. I cant believe how sharp this thing is. I have used it at work at home and even fishing and it is by far my favorite knife I own hands down the blade lock is awesome I even use it as a screwdriver occasionally and it still cuts like its fresh out the package. Great knife.
