Benchmade AFCK Limited Edition SHOT Show Knife -SOLD OUT- Combo Edge Coming Soon!
Back when the KnifeCenter was starting out in the mid 1990′s, when we were the only web site selling Benchmade knives! the AFCK was a best selling item. It was, along with the Emerson designed CQC7, the knife that made Benchmade Knives a famous brand in the world of American cutlery. We’ve seen a few offerings through the years with this great design, but this new one is extraordinary. These were only available at the SHOT Trade Show in Las Vegas to dealers of Benchmade Knives that were placing orders. We got in line for a limited number of these. The look is striking with the textured handle and blue medallion. The pocket clip is designed for deep pocket carry and is brightly polished. The action, though, is really smooth and solid. The disengagement of the liner is super easy. Then you have the new material for the blade. This M390 steel is really tough and hard and should be about as top quality as you can get. This is truly a Benchmade classic and they are very limited in availability. Limited to a production quantity of 250.
