See and pre-order the Gold Class 940 Osborne
The Model 940-121 incorporates the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism for a functional smoothness that compliments well the purity of the design style. A modified reverse tanto blade shape machined of CPM-M4 super steel, features dual thumb-stud openers for safe and easy ambidextrous access. The handle design is slender with a slight curvature and recessed contours for grip stability. Machined of titanium and deep color anodized, the handle scales are a rich green color in combination with beautiful carbon fiber, sparked by a color anodized titanium back spacer. TiCN silver coated hardware and carry-clip accent the blade and carbon fiber beautifully. The clip is movable to either handle side, making the Model 940-121 a 100-percent totally ambidextrous cutting tool.
See and pre-order the Model 62
The best is born of history and tradition or as is the case with the Benchmade 62 Bali-Song, reborn. The best began with the Bali-Song, the butterfly knife awesome in its simplicity, the ultimate example of form following function. And now we retrace those steps with the Model 62 with its numerous appreciable improvements. For starters, the Wee-hawk style blade is secured to the handles with screw-head pivot-pins, making the possibility of changing out blades a reality, and the pins are heat-treated and larger than previous ones. The handle latch uses a torx-head pivot-pin attachment as well, so it may be removed if preferred. Another nice feature is the skeletonized cast stainless steel handles which are very tough and weighted for better balance. The handles feature a T-latch lock with more pronounced contour for improved grip. As for the blade itself, we’ve extended the false edge farther back up the blade as was done on the traditional Wee-hawk designs. So if you’re already a Bali-Song fan from way back, you’ll definitely be pleased with the Model 62. Or if you’re just looking for the ultimate in basic form and simple function-this is it.
