Benchmade Barrage with M390 Super Steel Blade
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?
