Benchmade Adamas Series from Shane Sibert
Benchmade Knives has specialized in combat tactical knives, pretty much, from day 1. Their original Emerson models built the company. The Sibert MPR has been a popular combat folder since it was introduced last year. This new series of ADAMAS folders takes it to the full size folder class. These feature a D2 tool steel blade which is very hard and these are coated to avoid any corrosion. If you are our and about and need a full size folding knife, this may be the one you will want. It goes head to head with Strider and other heavy combat knives and is still affordable and available (at least so far).

Benchmade A2 235 Paul Axial Gents Knife
Benchmade Knives now produce the Paul Knives. Paul Pocketknives are great and unique items that we have been admiring since the mid 1990’s when Gerber Knives was producing them. Lone Wolf Knives did a great job of manufacturing more varieties of Paul Knives than anyone and we think Benchmade Knives will do an even better job. The Benchmade A2 is a great, mid size model with a 2.58″ blade and a sheath for carry. The handle has very attractive Carbon Fiber scales. This is a classy pocketknife produced entirely in the US by Americans and we think they are reasonably priced as well. You can see this model at www.knifecenter.com

Benchmade Aphid Folding Knives
We remember the Aphid series and we liked them a lot. These new ones are nicer, though, with a great assisted opening mechanism. Not sure why Benchmade picked the name Aphid for this knife—especially after reading about Aphids on Wikipedia. Ladybugs are a natural predator of Aphids… don’t anyone tell Spyderco. All of that silliness aside, this is a very cool little assisted opening gentleman’s tactical. We like the style, the size, the opening action, and the price. We’re just not so sure about the name…

Benchmade A4 245-1 Paul Axial Gent’s Knife Cocobolo Handles
Benchmade Knives ships their new Paul Knives! We have sold Paul knives from several companies over the years, and have loved them all. The originals from Gerber were so unique and collectible, the high fashion ones from Lone Wolf were simply exquisite… but the new ones from Benchmade will take Mr. Poehlmann’s design to a whole new level. Benchmade has the capacity to make these knives available to more people, at a lower price, and at the finest American quality. The first model is in our warehouse in limited quantities, and they are all we could have hoped for!

Benchmade Barrage with M390 Super Steel Blade
Benchmade has begun using this super steel M390 which, by all accounts, is the best on the market. We haven’t tried it here at the KnifeCenter, but objective accounts claim it is superior to the ZDP189 that we love so much. You can buy this knife and let us know! This Barrage model has an upgraded handle, assisted opening operation and the super hard steel blade. What’s not to like?

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.

Benchmade got their start making butterfly knives, so it always gives us an extra thrill when they bring out a new model! The new model 53 gave us an extra, extra thrill because it is the first Benchmade butterfly to be made with offset handles-as best as we can remember. The sculpted G10 gives the fly a strong hand purchase, and is very comfortable for repetitive cutting tasks. The D2 steel also makes this a great pick for an Every-Day-Carry-fly!
