There’s more to this knife than meets the carbides. With characteristics like the ambidextrous thumb-opening and a titanium locking mechanism, this Benchmade Knife 755 MPR Sibert Design Made-in-the-USA Plain Edge Knife carries far more than just a sharp edge.
Designed by Shane Sibert, the Benchmade 755 MPR delivers a most impressive array of top-shelf features. Let’s start with the blade. Due to the high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides, Bohler M390 steel offers superior cutting ability with supreme wear-resistance. Its unique powder metallurgical (that means premier) coating promotes a uniform, clean finish. This makes M390 steel a popular resident in surgical cutting instruments.
Additionally, the tactical drop-point design of this blade provides a slow convex-curved drop in the point. This contoured shape is specific for control while adding strength to the tip.
Far more than an edge, Benchmade has a lock on the situation. This Sibert Design Knife utilizes a titanium-made Monolock mechanism, which is basically a “locking liner on steroids.” Titanium and G10 handles provide a thicker handle, which in turn, creates a larger surface area to lock the blade with. Along with a titanium tip-down carry clip, the infatuation with titanium becomes obvious.
Know this: the two most distinguishing properties of Titanium include absolute-resistance to corrosion, and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. Whoa. Now, that’s awesome.
Fold open precision craftsmanship and lock premier function into place. The Benchmade 755 MPR Sibert Design Made-in-the-USA Plain Edge Knife carries far more than just a sharp edge.

This knife feels fantastic in the hand. I have large hands and love the width and bulk of this knife. Which is why I bought it.
It's a brick, and it is intended to be. Flipping the blade open takes a little practice and some shifting in the hand is required to do so with the thumbstud.
My one gripe about this knife is that the pocket clip can be moved slightly, even when tightened down.
When I first got the knife I could slide the pocket clip side to side--with little effort--only by about a centimeter. I tightened the two screws down as much as I could and now it is mostly stationary. However with enough pressure I can still slide the clip. This doesn't deter me from highly recommending this Benchmade knife, especially for people with big hands.

Top hunting folder...
Always considered the Lakota lil Hawk (no longer made) followed by the Gerber Magnum Hunting folder (no longer made) to be the best folders made for hunting but the Benchmade 755 (no longer made) is in my opinion the best hunting folder ever produced as a factory production knife. The primary reason I rank it above the lil Hawk and the Gerber is the quality of steel used in the blade.
