Benchmade Knives: USA-Made 580SBK Steel Black Barrage Folding Knife
The Benchmade American-Made 580 SBK Black Barrage Stainless Steel Knife continues the company's reputation for delivering exceptional cutlery for the outdoor sportsman/woman. The American-made knife is manufactured with 154CM stainless steel. U.S.A. Special Forces use work knives made from this steel. Originally developed for heavy industrial uses, 145CM stainless steel provides good edge retention and quality and is easy to sharpen. In addition, the material resists corrosion, which will give you long-lasting use.
The length of the drop-point blade of the Barrage knife is 3.60 inches and the thickness is 0.121 inches. The blade hardness is 58-61HRC. The overall length of the Benchmade knife is 8.35 inches while the closed length is 4.75 inches.
Benchmark uses the AXIS-assist locking mechanism within this everyday utility knife. This is one of the first to use both an AXIS lock and a spring assist. The AXIS locking system is considered to be the strongest locking system available on a folding knife. An AXIS lock can handle over 800 lb-inches of torque. Adding the spring assist, it gives you speed in opening. You can open this with either hand, thanks to the ambidextrous thumb-stud opener.
The handle is made from Valox, a lightweight glass-filled nylon. The black textured handle provides a good grip while merging an ergonomic feel with a great look. Designed by Warren Osborne, the handle features scallops or finger indents to allow your hand to sit easily on the back of the handle. The handle is only 0.650 inches thick. By using a skeleton frame, Benchmark is able to reduce material and minimize weight in the full-length stainless steel liners. The Benchmade accessory weights only 4.20 ounces.

Benchmade knives are the best....
By: Joe S
If you know anything about pocket knives then you know Benchmade makes some of the best. This pocket knife is no different. The 580 SBK steel is in my opinion a great knife steel because it is easy to sharpen and robust enough to hold up even the toughest ropes. This pocket knife from my experience is also very durable and quick deploy making it the perfect little accessory any job.

Benchmade is a solid choice for knives....
There is a reason that benchmade is a big name in the knife world. They create beautiful designs that get their job done. This knife is no exception, I have owned it for several months now and it fits in with my other knives perfectly. I especially like the design of the handle it seems to fit my hand better than my other knives.
