This sleek folding version of Benchmade’s popular Presidio knife is smaller than the fixed-blade model but gets the job done.
It features a 3 inch blade made of 154CM steel. 154CM is a bit of a wildcard these days. It used to be considered a premium steel. Others have now caught up or surpassed it in terms of quality. But it still is considered a high-quality, hard steel that can hold a sharp edge.
Still, Benchmade is known for producing great knives with quality materials and this knife is no exception.
Options include a combo blade or a plain blade. The can be coated with a non-reflective black coating or not.
You’ll be glad that the locking mechanism is not optional. It uses Benchmade’s patented ambidextrous AXIS system, which is getting quite a good reputation lately.
The handle is grooved aluminum, for a secure grip in either hand and in various weather conditions.
The knife measures just over seven inches when extended, just over four inches when closed. Included is a pocket clip.
