The Pardu Presidio by Benchmade is very hard to come by. It’s a collector’s edition limited to only one hundred pieces. So if you’re a Benchmade fan, you’ll definitely want to take a good, long look at this automatic knife.
The blade measures 3.42 inches, and is made from 154CM stainless steel, ranging between 58-60 on the Rockwell hardness scale. It has a simple plain edge and comes to a drop point at the tip, plus it’s coated with a black protective finish to hold the edge and shield the metal against the elements.
Its lightweight Coyote-Tan-colored handle features Benchmade’s patented Bi-Directional Grip Pattern, which embeds a lot of traction for a much sturdier grip. Those looking for an ambidextrous knife will be pleased to see an automatic AXIS pull release as well as an integrated safety mechanism. It’ll allow you to use the knife with either hand, if you’re able to do so safely.
With its strong design, quality materials, and patented convenience features, the Pardu Presidio is certainly not one tactical knife to be overlooked, especially considering it only comes in 100 limited editions. That makes it quite easy to miss if you’re not careful.
