This Benchmade 585 SBK Osborne Design Mini-Barrage Combo Edge Knife is the perfect multi-purpose knife, and a great addition to your toolbox until hunting season comes along. The Drop-point blade has plenty of belly for slicing, and has an ambidextrous thumb-stud opener for quick access.

It also exceeds ASTM standards for saltwater.
The black handle is constructed from Valox, a reinforced resin. The handle has 420J stainless steel liners and a reversible bright split arrow clip. An Axis assist-locking mechanism keeps the blade securely in place. This Benchmade 585 SBK Osborne Design Mini-Barrage Combo Edge Knife measures 6.91” in overall length with a blade length of 2.91”.

Perfect knife for daily carry....
I purchased this knife as an everyday carry knife replacement to my Benchmade Stryker Tanto that I recently lost(and happily found again a few days later). I wanted an EDC knife that would provide balance, strength and smooth cutting capabilities without an overly aggressive appreance so that it would not intimidate any co-workers and make them uncomfortable since it is always in my pocket.
The Mini-Barrage did not disappoint. It is very easy to open with one hand, comes extremely sharpe and the closure mechanism naturally draws your fingers out of the way the the edge when closing the knife. I also enjoy the location of the carry clip, which allows the knife to be drawn out of the pocket and opened in one smooth motion without any fumbling. The materials are high quality and there is no blade wobble when the knife is locked open.
The knife is noticeably heavy for its size when closed but balances out very nicely once open. All said, I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this product.

buy it now...
This knife embodies everything I look for in an EDC knife. It's size is small enough to easily fit unobtrusively in a pocket and not to alarm people nearby, yet big enough to get the job done. I've owned it for 3 years now, and the bottom line is, on the sad day that I lose mine, I will RUN to the nearest store to buy another! Bottom line, Mine is attractively battle scarred and has held up wonderfully, I would and will buy another one of these Benchmade knives in a heartbeat when I lose my current one. An enthusiastic 5 stars, you can't go wrong with this knife.
