New Benchmade Barrage Model 586

New Benchmade Barrage Model 586

The Barrage was Benchmade’s first ever AXIS lock model to incorporate an assisted opening mechanism and it’s continued to be a very popular design, even four years later. The model 581 was introduced in 2011 with the same specifications as the model 580 but with some nice material upgrades. The FRN handle was changed to G10 with stainless steel bolsters and the blade steel was upgraded to M390 super steel, providing a much better using steel while losing little of the stainless qualities 154CM steel provides. Now, in 2013 you can get the Mini Barrage with the same upgrades as the model 581 – the new 586. They’ve got 2.91″ drop point blades with either a nice stonewashed finish or the black BK2 coating. You can’t go wrong with any Benchmade design but if assisted openers are your thing, then the new model 586 is a superior EDC choice. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
